Brand: Gucci x Dapper-Dan
Key Pieces: We at Highsnobiety are particularly excited about this drop, not only because it’s dope, but because it’s finally giving Dapper Dan — one of Harlem’s best-kept secrets — the exposure and respect he deserves. Peep our favorite New York-references from the collection below.
Release Date: Now available online
Buy: Gucci online & In-store
Editor’s Notes: The Gucci and Dapper Dan collection is now available to cop online and in-store at select Gucci flagships. The assortment, created with Gucci materials, consists of ready-to-wear styles and accessories, pulling inspiration from Dan’s archives.
Gucci’s go-to fabrics can thus be seen on tracksuits and jackets, while the fashion house’s signature green and red stripes are prevalent throughout the range. Embroidered dragons, GG print, and even a new Gucci logo account for additional details noted on bombers, T-shirts, tank tops, but also shoes, backpacks, and silk scarfs.
For the capsule’s lookbook, Gucci selected photographer Ari Marcopoulos to highlight a cast of characters from Harlem, paying homage to the designer’s New York roots. At the core, the lookbook is a nod to archival imagery from the ’80s, set throughout the neighborhood and beyond.
