    Thanks to the power of social media, it was brought to everyone’s attention that a jacket from Gucci’s Cruise 2018 collection, was a Dapper Dan knock off. The legendary tailor from Harlem has created dope pieces for rappers, athletes and fashion forward clients since the 80’s.


    Gucci took to Instagram and admitted that their piece was, absolutely, inspired by one of Dan’s original designs.

    Inside the #GucciCruise18 collection by #AlessandroMichele, a look that celebrates an iconic style of hip-hop fashion culture from the 80s — a plush jacket featuring puffy sleeves monogrammed in GG motif. Legendary tailor Dapper Dan @dapperdanharlem influenced the trend by making such custom pieces for his rapper and athlete clients out of logos from famous fashion houses, including #Gucci,” says the post’s caption. “In a homage to Dapper Dan, this jacket worn with jeans and a lurex headpiece is flanked with a striped knit with cross-stitch embroidery, cotton shorts and a georgette gown with trompe l’oeil details.
