Dapper Dan 16
Dapper Dan is a men’s magazine that is interested in inspiration, not novelty; in looking good on one’s own terms rather than being spoon-fed trends.
Dapper Dan 16 – Autumn/Winter 2017
Dapper Dan 16: Dapper Dan is back with its 16th issue, on the theme of poetry, in which Daniel Askill – Sia’s filmmaker of choice – tells us about what it’s like to have reached meme-able status. But would a man by any other name be as dapper? To find out, we interviewed hair stylist supremo Julien d’Ys who tells us about his creative process in collaboration with Rei Kawakubo, artist duo Elmgreen and Dragset who take us to the Istanbul Biennial, and fashion illustrator Mats Gustafson who shows us his previously unpublished nudes.
There’s also a dreamlike trip on the Trans-Siberian railway and a reflective piece by Angelo Flaccavento on less being more. In addition to this, Chinese fashion designer Sun Yun shows us the collection he debuted in a former slaughterhouse, photographer Michel Lamoller fractures our perception of time and space with his collages and Thomas Persson—the man behind Luncheon magazine—gives us a tour of his London studio.
