Gucci’s Limited Edition Dapper Dan Book Is Out Today


It’s no secret that Gucci loves Dapper Dan. After channeling the legendary New York designer with their Cruise 18 collection (and getting called out by Diet Prada), the brand tapped Dan to star in their AW17 tailoring campaign and dropped their first ever collaboration collection, a Dapper Dan-designed capsule. Now, the brand has put together a limited edition book that immortalises the pioneer and their collab in print.

Shot by photographer Ari Marcopoulos, the book gives an inside look at Dan’s hometown of Harlem through his eyes, with portraits of his friends and family alongside locals posing in the collection. Featuring images of some of the capsule’s strongest pieces, as well as classic Harlem landmarks and photos of chef Marcus Samuelsson, and artist Cleo Wade, among others, it’s a long overdue ode to such a legendary designer.

Limited to only 500 copies, the book was launched on Tuesday night at the Gucci Garden, where Daniel was on hand for signatures. It’s available at Gucci’s Florence Garden and newly-opened Wooster Bookstore in New York, as well as through London publisher IDEA as of today. Be quick.
