Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy & Street Style

$35
Product info

With bright hues, bold prints, sharp, well-tailored lines and a mix of global influences, Black dandyism is a stylishly subversive movement that challenges society’s notions of what it means to be a man — particularly a Black man. Originally collected as a traveling photography and film-based exhibition under the same name, Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style is a visual celebration of this fashion movement turned sartorialist act of protest. In this book, you’ll explore the rich and complicated history of Black dandyism, from its roots in sacred and deeply symbolic African textiles, the Victorian dandies of England’s Enlightenment period and the transatlantic slave trade all the way to its place in modern culture. You’ll also find stunning shots and brief profiles on the designers, tailors, people, personalities and photographers who have challenged cultural expectations through their impeccable dress and helped to bring Black dandyism to the mainstream. Sampling from a myriad of styles, cultures and eras, these fashion trailblazers have mixed vintage and modern pieces with flamboyant colors and intricate prints to bring an African diasporan aesthetic and sensibility to classical European fashion — and, in doing so, have blurred the lines between race, class, gender, power and style. Also included is a look at some of the destinations, movements and happenings across the globe where these trends are being set. Bursting with inspiration and unique style, this book is must-have for fashion lovers and dapper disruptors alike.
