The New Collaboration Collection: Gucci x Dapper Dan


Gucci x Dapper Dan

In September 2017, Gucci announced its collaboration with the iconic Harlem couturier, Dapper Dan, since then they have been secretly undergoing the design process of this exclusive collection and we have not seen or heard about it, until now.
 The creative director of Gucci, Alessandro Michele and Dapper Dan officially launched the new collaboration collection last month, (17th July) and it was most definitely worth the wait and lives up to our highest expectations.

The Collection

The collaboration collection capsule is inspired by the New York streets of Harlem and Dapper Dan's custom pieces from his 80's/90's archives. The product collection ranges from ready-to-wear apparel, footwear, eyewear, leather bags and accessories.

"Exploring the synergy of design between Dapper Dan and creative director Alessandro Michele the new collection of ready-to-wear and accessories features tracksuits in luxurious fabrics denim with 80's washes and fits and GG canvas jacquard jackets". Gucci


"Predictably debonair like the legendary hip-hop tailor himself, the Gucci-Dapper Dan collection reimagines Dan's ’80s and ’90s designs worn by rappers, boxers and bootleggers, alike, with a Guccified twist". Vogue

The Collection Capsule Look book

The collaboration look book was shot by the very talented, Ari Marcopoulo. The images were captured in the streets of Harlem and its natives of the area were the models, which pays homage to the archive imagery uncovered of people wearing bespoke Dapper Dan pieces during his heyday.
