Dapper Dan & Gucci Open Long-Awaited Boutique In Harlem

This is truly a full-circle moment for the designer.

Legendary Harlem designer, Dapper Dan has signed on for an official partnership with Gucci to open a new boutique in Harlem. A tastemaker of black fashion in the late 80s and early 90s, Dapper Dan added his own unique flavor to the luxury Italian brand's high-end designer logo. More than 35 years later, the designer has been tapped for an official collaboration with the Italian luxury brand.

Dapper Dan took to Twitter to share the news on Wednesday. “A sign of the times. For the 1st time in history, a major luxury brand store has opened in Harlem: Gucci by Dapper Dan Harlem with made-to-order garments for your taste & in your specific measurements, I will create your design from your mind, or come up with a design for you,” he wrote.



This is truly a full-circle moment for the designer. When Gucci premiered their 2018 Resort collection in Florence last year, many of the runway designs looked strikingly similar to the hood couture' faux Gucci pieces popularized by Dapper Dan. After years of contention and mutual admiration, the two iconic style makers are finally on the same team.


But don't get it twisted, Dapper Dan is still about his hustle.



We see you Dapper Dan. Congratulations on the come up!
