Months after launching their inaugural collaboration, the retail giant and Harlem designer return with another batch of their wildly popular “DAP” hoodies. But this time, they’ve added a hefty dose of festive flare.
The limited edition drop offers a handful of hoodies presented in four different colorways: there’s three plaid-patterned hoodies available in red, yellow, and forest green, as well as a houndstooth-patterned design in brown and camel. Each piece features a “DAP” gold applique across the chest with “Harlem” embroidered underneath. The pullovers also have the standard kangaroo pockets, drawstrings at the hood, as well as ribbed cuffs and hems.
“Gap is like pizza, everybody eats pizza. And everybody at some point or another is going to bring a pie home,” Dapper Dan told Complex earlier this year. “That’s what Gap represents. It represents that part of food that we all relate to. Gap speaks to all of us, but it’s a part of who I am and who we all are. So I love that.”
The “DAP” holiday hoodies will drop Nov. 29 at Harlem’s Gap store and hit the brand’s online shop at noon ET on Nov. 30. Each of the hoodies will retail for $128. You can get a closer look at the pieces above and below.
In celebration of the release, Dapper Dan will make an appearance at Gap’s Harlem location at 9 a.m. ET on the day of the launch. Immediately after the event, Dan and Gap will kick off “Gap House Sessions”—a series in which the former will lead inspirational discussions with Harlem youth. The event will be presented in collaboration with the Brotherhood Sister Sol, a nonprofit organization that focuses on social justice and youth development. Gap has also pledged to donate $100,000 to BroSis to assist its mission.
