your holiday wish list, in a pop-up shop.

by liza darwin

We visit Cool Hunting because we want to discover awesomely under-the-radar stuff before all our friends. We check out Gap because the mega-chain is stocked with those wear-everywhere, stylish basics that our wardrobe always craves.

So obviously, we didn't even need a reason to swing by NYC's brand-new Cool Hunting x Gap Holiday Pop-Up Shop. This rustic-inspired, intimate space is total one-stop shopping, but not in an overwhelming kind of way. Instead, it's a carefully curated collection of limited-edition books, fashion, accessories and more for both guys and girls.

According to Cool Hunting Editor in Chief Josh Rubin, "We wanted the shop to be a snapshot of what is going on at this moment in the city." This means Zillion skateboards, Philip Crangi jewelry, and even Bamboo bikes, plus tons more items from New York-based designers. The store opens tomorrow, so you know what that means...let the holiday shopping officially begin.

Cool Hunting x Gap, 680 5th Ave (between 53 & 54 streets), New York City.
