Gucci x Dapper Dan Collection Now Available Online

As a Harlem folk hero and cult-fashion icon in his own right, the designer Daniel Day — also known as Dapper Dan — became a prolific figure within his community and the contemporary hip-hop and sports culture scenes of the ’80s. As an eccentric fashion sensible creator, the pieces he fabricated possessed an idiosyncratic nature that intertwined with his own personality while platforming his interest in reinterpreting Haute fashion offerings. And in finding this niche, the entrepreneur gained great appeal and attention, thus resulting in him outfitting the likes of Floyd Mayweather, LL Cool J, and Eric B. & Rakim in one-of-a-kind pieces.

With a touch of luxury embellishments and fabrics, a selection of garments feature all-over monogram prints, screen-printed leather, appliquè, ornate embroidering, and python. This, in turn, is complemented by denim, footwear, and accessories that further capture the nostalgia and feel of the eighties and nineties, while subtly alluding to the life of Dapper Dan himself.

Peep the pictures and head over to Gucci’s official site and select flagship stores and stock up on your favorite items.
