Deaths in Mediterranean have risen with migrants opting for dangerous routes and exposing themselves to violence, says IOM
More than 22,500 migrants have reportedly died or disappeared globally since 2014 – more than half of them perishing while attempting to cross the Mediterranean, according to a study by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).
A clampdown on Europe’s eastern borders has forced migrants to choose more dangerous routes as the death toll in the Mediterranean continues to rise despite a drop in the overall number of arrivals, data compiled by the UN refugee agency shows.
It’s official: The New York Times confirms that Gucci and Dapper Dan are coming together for a collaborative capsule collection, but it doesn’t stop there. The fashion label is even helping the legendary Harlem tailor, whose shop was shut down in 1992 for multiple copyright infringement violations, reopen his uptown atelier. And it’s going to furnish him with upscale fabrics with which to do as he pleases.
The partnership comes shortly after the Italian fashion house was accused of copying one of Dapper Dan’s designs for Olympian Diane Dixon—a puffy-shouldered fur bomber originally emblazoned with Louis Vuitton monograms. In response, creative director Alessandro Michele clarified that it wasn’t a copy, but rather an homage to the tailor’s work.
Dapper Dan—born Daniel Day—took the jacket as homage initially, telling the NYT: “I was just excited about it being there. The part about appropriation, Alessandro and I are part of two parallel universes. The magic that took place as a result of what he did was bringing these two parallel universes together. That opened a dialogue between us when we finally got in touch with each other. I found out how similar our experiences were, the way he grew up and the way I grew up, and how he was influenced by me. I was never apprehensive about what took place. The public was more up in arms than me.”
The new Dapper Dan tailor shop—which will be powered by Gucci—is set to open at the end of this year. His collaborative capsule collection with the house, including a campaign shot in Harlem and featuring him prominently, will debut next spring.
Key Pieces: Party dresses, collaborative adidas track pants and track jackets, deconstructed fatigue pants, high-waisted trousers.
Editor’s Notes: Alexander Wang brought editors, buyers, and the Kardashian-Jenner clan to Bushwick, Brookyn, taking over the hipster-riddled streets to present his SS18 collection. He brought out the big guns, including Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid, while Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian West, and a slew of other celebrities looked on from the front row. We also got a peek at more collaborative gear with adidas, although Wang’s line took center stage for the show.

After the show, Wang brought back #WANGFEST, and even alluded to the party’s over-the-top nature in the show, featuring models like Jenner wearing headpieces relating to the designer’s infamous afterparties. Indeed, attendees were given Shake Shack burgers prior to the show starting, and once the gate to the afterparty opened, guests were greeted with a moon bounce, an igloo featuring ice sculptures and Red Bull-fueled cocktails, a Dunkin Donuts feast, and plenty more. Wang even ordered a ton of Domino’s pizza at the end of the night to feed hungry guests.
