What an incredible combination this may turn out to be. One of the most iconic Italian fashion houses, the everlasting Gucci, have successfully joined forces to release the highly anticipated collection with the legendary Harlem couturier Dapper Dan.
The result is a totally chic and impressive line of almost everything; it consists of more or less 300 different pieces, including accesorizes, like eyewear adorned with Swarovski crystals, leather backpacks and even socks.
We can easily see the evidence of Dan’s signature in the oversized sweatsuits and leather bomber jackets design, which represents the elegance and swagger of Harlem, where Dapper Dan is from, but also in the silk scarves, the sneakers and the wide variety of textures used mixed with Gucci’s style and its logo.
The official photo campaign is also incredible and professional, shot by Ari Marcopoulos, and is able to convey the perfect idea of the mix between the tremendous street style and the classical Italian tradition.
The fortunate partnership puts together two big legends of the fashion world. Born Daniel Dapper, this is the very man whose clothes attracted the attention of Mike Tyson and Big Daddy Kane, after the opening of his historical boutique at on 125th Street, New York in 1982.
