In addition to the fan-favorite hoodies, the duo’s next “DAP GAP” delivery will include an assortment of sweatpants and accessories, as well as an entire childrenswear line. With 18 pieces in total, the line looks to celebrate Dan’s cultural influence and his hometown of Harlem with a number of graphic and pattern-heavy designs.
Among the standouts, graphic logo hoodies boldly front “Harlem” lettering alongside the collaboration’s logo, and matching sweatpants feature a houndstooth print. Additionally, there’s a range of totes, baseball hats, socks and iconographic ascots — and all of ‘em house the now-loved “DAP” motif.
To ring in the collaboration, Dap crafted a campaign that “represents a visual bridge where Harlem and GAP meet.” Shot and directed by Ghanaian American creative photographer Joshua Kissi, the “DAP GAP ” campaign pictures a multigenerational cast of Harlem legends, including Melba Wilson, Felipe Luciano, Giannina Oteto, Starr Williams, Grey Iona, Chaz Anthony and more.
“A breakthrough is when people finally find their space in areas they have never been before, but a breakout is when you take the culture and the people who created it and bring it around the world. When Gap came to me, this partnership signified a breakout for the culture,” said Dap in a statement. “This DAP GAP campaign is my love letter to Harlem, and my way of continuing to propel our culture and community forward. Gap gave us the global presence that allowed us to have the breakout and I can’t wait for the next generation to be a part of this movement.”
Dan will debut the collection at Harlem’s GAP 125th Street store on December 4, before its wider release via the brand’s webstore on December 5. The line will be available in sizes ranging from toddler 2T to adult XXXL, with prices running from $25 USD to $128 USD. Take a first look at the collection in the gallery above.
