Black Dandyism Is Back, and It’s Both Oppositional Fashion and Therapy at Once
Shantrelle P. Lewis

Reading this has been enlightening, thank you.

I myself am not black, yet when I exercise some level of dandyism, it’s not uncommon for a black woman to compliment me as we pass by in the street. The first time it happened, it surprised me quite a bit!

There truly is great power in apparel, and I applaud your examination of what it means to those who are black. I look forward to viewing the Dandy Lion exhibition if it returns to the States.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
