A Tribute to Harlem Style
Gucci’s long-awaited collaboration with Dapper Dan hits the market
Last September, Italian fashion house announced that it will do a collaboration with Dapper Dan, a legendary hip-hop tailor. In the 80s and 90s, Dan’s designs were adored and worn by rappers and boxers alike, and Alessandro Michele reimagines that signature aesthetics with a Gucci twist. The new collection, which is available on the official website and in selected stores globally, features tracksuits, jackets, T-shirts and tanks and other items in Gucci’s signature fabrics and decorative elements. You can also spot a new yellow Gucci logo making its appearance, inspired by the original sign of Dan’s Harlem store.
Photographer Ari Marcopoulos was behind the lens to capture the collection in a range of images, paying tribute to Dapper Dan’s design heritage.
去年9月，意大利时装公司宣布将与传奇嘻哈裁缝Dapper Dan合作。 在80年代和90年代，Dan的设计受到说唱歌手和拳击手的喜爱和佩戴，Alessandro Michele用Gucci的风格重新设计了这种标志性美学。新系列以Gucci标志性的面料和装饰元素为特色，可在官方网站和全球特定商店购买，包括运动服、夹克、T恤以及背心等。您还可以看到一个新的黄色Gucci标志，其外观灵感来自Dan的 Harlem商店的原始标志。
