AC/DC Logo Seen on Gucci’s Fall Fashion Line
AC/DC might do dirty deeds for dirt cheap, but the band-inspired duds that are part of this year's Gucci fall fashion line will cost you.
Metal Injection reports that the band's logo appears to have been incorporated into at least one new Gucci ensemble, judging from the cover design put together for the next issue of T, The New York Times fashion magazine. The photo depicts a model facing away from the camera, showing off the glittery backside of a dress emblazoned with AC/DC in the iconic font familiar to millions of fans.
While nothing seems to have been officially announced by either side, a February New York Times article mentions the collaboration in passing. Quoting a Gucci rep describing the new line as "rock ’n’ roll Renaissance, 1980s Renaissance, street-style Renaissance, bourgeois Renaissance, chinoiserie Renaissance," the report adds that couture enthusiasts can expect to see "long, ostrich-trimmed gowns and short studded leather suits; big shoulders and puffed shoulders; fur trim and fur cuffs; putti prints and giant shaggy furs; hostess dresses with fluted sleeves and one with AC/DC sequined on the back."
Metal Injection goes on to speculate that, given past price points, the AC/DC dress is likely to cost in the neighborhood of $12,000, leaving it out of reach for all but the most dedicated (and cash-infused) collector. Vintage AC/DC tour T-shirts, meanwhile, can be had for as low as $3 on eBay. They're nowhere near as sparkly, but they look a lot more comfortable.
