Campaign spotlights changemakers from Harlem, Dapper Dan’s birthplace.
December 1, 2023
Dapper Dan and Gap have announced an expanded collection that features hoodies and expands the assortment to introduce kids’ clothing, sweatpants and accessories. Dapper Dan will exclusively debut the collection to his Harlem community Dec. 4 at the Gap 125th Street store, where he will meet fans ahead of the wider drop Dec. 5.
The newest DAP Gap collection has 18 pieces, including graphic logo hoodies that boldly feature “Harlem” with the DAP logo, matching logo sweatpants in houndstooth print, a tote bag with clutch insert, baseball hats, socks and a logo ascot. The collection is available in sizes toddler 2T to adult XXXL.
“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,” says Dapper Dan. “When Gap came to me, this partnership signified a breakout for the culture. 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.”
