Dapper Dan & Gucci Team Up For New Men’s Campaign


Hip-Hop culture and high fashion have had a long-running romance with many pioneers to thank for this. Dapper Dan, Harlem’s Hip Hop tailor is one of those pioneers. Dan’s efforts to show us just where the hood and high fashion really meet began in Harlem in the 1980s; his once ridiculed, now coveted designs as well as years of hard work on what he describes as a “macho type of ethnic ghetto clothing” has made for a capsule collection with none other than luxury brand, Gucci.

After criticism of Gucci’s copying one of Dan’s most unforgettable designs, the label’s creative director, Alessandro Michele and Dapper Dan came together to collaborate. Not only did Dan appear in the brands Cruise 2018 men’s tailoring campaign, but he will work with the Michele on a 2018 pre-fall collection. We can’t wait to see what will come of this collaboration. Be sure to stay tuned for updates. dapp1
