An homage to the couturier’s original boutique, unveiling the Dapper Dan Harlem atelier studio.
Offering bespoke garments custom-made by private appointment using special Gucci fabrics, prints, embroidered patches and hardware, Dapper Dan’s new studio atelier is located in a historic brownstone in Harlem. The studio’s interiors are a nod to Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s vision and the rich sartorial heritage of Harlem, with rich velvet partitions and cherry red boiserie wall panels mixed with a decorative tin ceiling and vintage furniture. The space also features archival photographs from Dap’s heyday and a selection of unique vintage furniture, where clients can discuss their ideas and options for their exclusive pieces. Once finished by the couturier, each piece is presented to the client with a certificate of authenticity.

Dap, renowned for the made-to-order creations he designed for celebrities, athletes, and hip-hop artists in the 1980s, appeared in Gucci’s Men’s Tailoring campaign shot by Glen Luchford.
Available as a special preview inside the Gucci Wooster space in SoHo, New York, the Gucci - Dapper Dan collection is available online from July 17th.
