AC/DC Has a Fashion Deal with Gucci. Wait–What?

When you think “fashion” and “AC/DC,” you think schoolboy uniforms, porkpie hats, t-shirts and working-class jeans. Now you’re also going to have to think Gucci.

If this Instagram photo from the NY Times Style Magazine is anything to go by, 1 percenters will be soon be able to buy Gucci haute couture gear emblazoned with the AC/DC logo.

Now that I think of it, I remember hearing something a few months ago where Gucci described their 2016 line as “rock’n’roll Renaissance, 1980s Renaissance, street-style Renaissance, bourgeois Renaissance, chinoiserie Renaissance.”

No prices have been announced, although we may be able to read about the collection this Sunday when the magazine gets delivered with the paper. Meanwhile, there’s something about this that just doesn’t feel right.
