Alessandro Michele undertook the reins of Gucci since 2015. He has been in favor of collaborations to both inspire and decorate the collections. While Gucci has been already working with names like GucciGhost and Coco Capitán, a new name adds on and this time its Dapper Dan.
Daper Dan, the famous Harlem couturier influenced the 2018 resort collection directly. Dan’s legacy is embedded in the ideas of Hip Hop. He is renowned for his bespoke pieces for everyone in the eighties and nineties be it Mike Tyson or LL Cool J. Gucci will also be supporting the relaunch of Dan’s historic store.
The man who once came under fire for ripping off the double G’s of the Italian powerhouse will now be directly supported by their financing. now that we can see the powerful impact of Hip Hop culture under the spotlight of the runways, the original tailor behind it all surely deserves a return.
