Dapper Dan dressed OG rap legends including Eric B. & Rakim, and LL Cool J, so when the hip hop tailor of Harlem teamed up with Gucci, it was the stone-cold collab of the century, with history, authenticity, legacy sewn into its very seams.
Gucci-Dapper Dan - which dropped in July 2018 - featured leather jackets, bucket hats, bum bags and back packs all emblazoned with the giant GGs that became Dap's calling card, plus velour tracksuits and bomber jackets with cascading embroidery as a nod to Alessandro Michele's aesthetic.
Now for the first time, Gucci is welcoming clients to the Dapper Dan atelier in Harlem by appointment from 10 September until 27 September 2019.
