International Recording Artist Katy Perry Headlines Gap’s Holiday 2021 Campaign, ALL TOGETHER NOW – A Tribute To The Power of Working Together To Foster Love, Kindness and Acceptance
Perry to debut an exclusive recording of The Beatles’ beloved anthem, “All You Need is Love”
NEW YORK, 22 November 2021: This holiday, Gap has joined forces with international recording artist and cultural icon Katy Perry to underscore the importance of love, kindness, and acceptance with its new campaign, ALL TOGETHER NOW. Gap shines at the intersection of culture, fashion, and music, with Perry’s remix of “All You Need Is Love,” bringing Gap’s modern American optimism to life like never before.
Concepted by Gap Global Creative Director Len Peltier and captured by renowned American filmmaker Mark Romanek, ALL TOGETHER NOW amplifies the power of music and storytelling to convey a sense of love and joy that brings people together – the essence of the iconic song that inspired the campaign itself. The Beatles debuted “All You Need is Love” in 1967, just two years before Gap was founded in 1969 – a cultural decade defined by changemakers. Fast forward to today, ALL TOGETHER NOW spotlights Perry as herself, a dimensional culture shaper making an impact across music, philanthropy and empowerment – showing her fans the importance of being part of something greater than yourself.
“Music and culture have always been part of Gap’s heritage,” says Mary Alderete, global head of Gap marketing. “When Gap first opened in 1969 with the fresh idea of selling denim next to a curated selection of records, Gap also committed to a founding principle – do more than sell clothes. We’re thrilled to further Gap’s mission in partnership with global icon and culture shaper, Katy Perry.”
Wearing holiday favorites, such as 90s icons including Gap’s arch logo hoodie and an oversized denim jacket, vintage soft joggers and a 100% recycled cropped puffer, Perry vocalizes the uplifting spirit of hope and togetherness at the most magical time of year. ALL TOGETHER NOW includes Gap’s holiday collection, featuring an assortment of seasonal icons for the whole family. Signature looks from the collection include matching family flannel PJs, cozy lounge and fleece sets, 90s-inspired denim fits, and a variety of recycled puffers and cold weather accessories available in bright colors and textures, perfect for mixing and matching.
“I’m always excited to work with brands that are going the extra mile to make this world a better, happier place,” said Katy Perry. “Reimagining one of the most recognizable and emotional songs of our time with an iconic brand like Gap, having such a special and important message, has been a dream.”
In honor of World Kindness Day, Gap will also be celebrating friendships of every kind and the people who cultivate them. Gap and Disney will issue an exclusive collaboration for all generations – Gap’s classic arch logo with Mickey Mouse. This limited-edition logo collection and Gap’s donation of $50,000 will continue Gap’s partnership with EmbraceRace – a non-profit organization that supports parents and other adults to raise a generation of children who are thoughtful, informed, and brave about race. Their emerging storytelling platform will be dedicated to sharing first-person stories at the intersections of race, culture, and other identities, inspiring all generations to embrace friendships of every kind.
