Legends Never Die
The highly anticipated Gucci x Dapper Dan collection is finally here and it's a win for the culture!
If you're not familiar with Dapper Dan - he made a name for himself in the 1980's with his custom made-to-order pieces that repurposed logos from luxury fashion houses such as Gucci, Louis Vuitton, MCM, etc. into hip-hop inspired designs. He was forced to close his business after being sued by many of the major brands which is why it's so crazy that he's now working with one!
Earlier this year, Gucci partnered with Dapper Dan to reopen his Harlem atelier on Lenox Avenue. By appointment only, customers were able to buy custom-made garments by Dapper Dan using Gucci fabrics, prints, embroidery and hardware! Inspired by the Harlem streets and Dapper Dan's iconic custom pieces from the 80's, their first collection consists of apparel, velour footwear, eyewear, leather bags and so much more! Shop the collection now at gucci.com! It's a perf combo of the Harlem designer with the Italian fashion house!
