Take A Look At Gucci's New Dapper Dan-Inspired Collection
Gucci today unveils a new collection inspired by the legendary designer Dapper Dan. Operating in Harlem in the 1980s and 90s, Dapper Dan built his name creating one-off outfits for hip-hop and street style stars including the likes of LL Cool J, Eric B., Rakim, and Salt-N-Pepa. His looks were often matching full-length tracksuits, often covered in logos, as well as great long jackets. The Gucci collection takes favorites from Dapper Dan's work and reimagines them using high-quality Gucci fabrics and leathers, with the Gucci logo printed often over the garments. Photographer Ari Marcopoulos shot the campaign in and around the streets of Harlem to capture the authenticity of Dapper Dan's original shop neighborhood. Take a look in the following slides.
