Dapper Dan


NEW YORK, 2018

"As a Harlem folk hero and cult-fashion icon in his own right, the designer Daniel Day — also known as Dapper Dan — became a prolific figure within his community and the contemporary hip-hop and sports culture scenes of the ’80s. As an eccentric fashion sensible creator, the pieces he fabricated possessed an idiosyncratic nature that intertwined with his own personality while platforming his interest in reinterpreting Haute fashion offerings. And in finding this niche, the entrepreneur gained great appeal and attention, thus resulting in him outfitting the likes of Floyd Mayweather, LL Cool J, and Eric B. & Rakim in one-of-a-kind pieces. As the decades have passed, his legacy has become the inspiration for a new generation of fashion purveyors. This essence would even catch the eye of Gucci’s Creative Director." by Hypebeast.com
