Gap x Dapper Dan Collab – DAP GAP

In a groundbreaking collaboration, Gap and Dapper Dan have introduced their latest venture, the DAP GAP Spring Collection. A significant evolution from their previous engagements. This new line ventures beyond the familiar territory of sweats to embrace an expansive array of western denim styles, paying homage to the archetypal cowboy while infusing the vibrant spirit of Harlem.

The heart of Harlem is palpably felt in this collection, showcased through the captivating video filmed by Ghanaian-American photographer, Joshua Kissi. Set against the backdrop of the historic Graham Court apartment building, the video features a diverse cast that embodies the community’s rich cultural tapestry, bringing the essence of Harlem to the forefront of the fashion scene.

The fashion pioneer made a name for himself in the 80s and 90s as a swanky haberdasher who remixed designer looks for Hip Hop stars, street legends, and athletes. He birthed a monogram trend that luxury designer houses still emulate to this day.

Dapper Dan’s collaboration with Gap began two years ago with the DAP GAP logo hoodie that sold out within minutes of its release. It’s included in this upcoming collection in new colorways and has a multidimensional significance. “At certain points in history, the hoodie was used to represent the dark side of our culture. So, this partnership with Gap presents it in a way that shows you can wear a hoodie and be fly, be international, and elegant,” explains Dapper Dan.

The 22-piece capsule collection is a testament to the seamless blend of Gap’s iconic textiles with Dapper Dan’s innovative fashion vision, offering customers an immersive experience into a logomania universe that is both familiar and refreshingly original.
