Dapper Dan And A$AP Ferg Putting Harlem Style On The Map

October 11, 2017

Fashionista reports that Dapper Dan (right) is Harlem‘s mayor, who outfitted a series of ’80s rappers in luxury garments DIY-ed to have more generous and youthful fits. His boutique was shut down in 1992 after a chain of copyright lawsuits, but his hip-hop aesthetic and memorable logo pieces continue to influence streetwear and runway trends today (i.e: Gucci). In addition, Dapper Dan is a mentor to rising Harlem artists. Rapper and designer A$AP Ferg worked with Dapper Dan since he was 13; Dap allowed the young graffiti writer to put his work on some of his clients’ clothes, and the two Harlem natives continue to have a strong bond today — one that is conveyed in a new shoot that captures both men and their legendary styles in various Harlem spots wrote HighSnobiety.
