Gucci x Dapper Dan Capsule Collection
Introducing the collection of ready-to-wear and accessories that takes its cue from the Dapper Dan archive created with the House’s refined materials. Featuring a new yellow Gucci logo, the pieces were shot by Ari Marcopoulos on young faces from Harlem.
Exploring the synergy of design between Dapper Dan and creative director Alessandro Michele, the new collection of ready-to-wear and accessories features tracksuits in luxurious fabrics, denim with late 80s washes and fits and GG canvas jacquard jackets.
To celebrate the launch of the special collection, a special episode of the Gucci Podcast channel features the designer from Harlem in conversation with the editor-in-chief of Vestoj, Anja Cronberg. Together they talk about how he first began creating made-to-order pieces in the 80s, his ongoing collaboration with Gucci, including the reopening of his atelier in Harlem, and the new special collection.
