These (technically illegal) Louis Vuitton and Gucci streetwear pieces are so swag it hurts

Is this is the next Dapper Dan?

With Gucci just announcing a formal partnership with the outlawed Harlem tailor, Dapper Dan , and Alessandro Michele’s fresh batch of bootleg-inspired logo tees parading down the resort ‘18 runway, the relationship between high fashion and unofficial appropriation seems stronger than ever before.

Now another designer by the name Kelley Hice is following in Dapper D’s footsteps, creating custom high-end streetwear designs using (ironically) authentic Louis Vuitton and Gucci materials.

The results? Seriously cool.

Just ask Rihanna, who recently repped a LV baseball cap made by Hice.

From logo-emblazoned jeans and baseball caps to matching sneakers and belt bags, these fresh pieces are reminiscent of the sell-out Louis Vuitton X Supreme collab.

Here’s hoping Hice gets approached by Gucci or Louis Vuitton to do a similar thing as Dapper Dan (and soon), because these unofficial designer re-work practices are technically illegal. Eep.

In the meantime, check out more of Hice’s swagger styles on his Instagram, @SuperKreep.
