Dapper Dan 20 – Cover 1 | Autumn/Winter 2019
Dapper Dan 20 | In this, our 20th issue, Dapper Dan is the everyman. We explore the sense of self in the individual. We explore the mood of individualism at the core of current fashion. In the pages of our magazine, modern masculinity plays out.
Our writers and interviewees consider disguise and identity, heroism and the antihero. Their thoughts are immortalised in our words. Our images transcribe a modern mythology in menswear.
‘I don’t like to look back. It’s not because I don’t care about the past’, says buyer and founder of MACHINE-A Stavros Karelis
‘You can make yourself into a walking hallucination,’ says writer and curator Charlie Fox
‘Maybe the instant gratification of sharing and receiving attention through the internet can be dangerous for an artist,’ say the duo behind publishing house, Loose Joints
‘Life is a real cycle somehow, it’s very weird,’ says architect and founder of DIPLOMATES Matthieu Prat
‘I love what I love, and I don’t care if nobody else has ever heard of it. I’d love it if everyone loved the thing I liked,’ says writer Charlie Porter
What is the modern condition of menswear? What is the condition of man? You tell us, while we show you what we know. For we are what we wear, but only for a moment.
