Essays trace the history of young men and their clothes in the 19th century, the exquisite fabrics and tailoring in dandy style, and the relationship of black dandyism and hip-hop. Includes Patti Smith considering Charles Baudelaire; a reflection on Oscar Wilde by his grandson, Merlin Holland; Daniela Morera, formerly part of Andy Warhol’s Factory crowd, reminiscing about the artist’s image; and writer Philip Hoare describing the thrift-shop dandyism of director John Waters.
This volume complements the exhibition Artist | Rebel | Dandy: Men of Fashion, shown at the RISD Museum April 26 through August 18, 2013.
