Who Is Dapper Dan?

April 29th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Centered on the idea of fashion as a source of inspiration rather than consumerism, Dapper Dan Magazine focuses on content that stimulates. Created by editors Vassilis Karidis and Nicholas Georghiou and creative director, Ismini Adami the magazine boats a unique aesthetic sensibility that values artistry as well as elegance. Presented entirely in black and white and featuring an assortment of fashion notables, the Greek bi-annual is sure to strike a cord with men who are style conscious, but don’t believe in following trends.

The lineup of designers is selective and impeccable: Damir Doma, Rei Kawakubo, Rick Owens, all talents that innovate within the field. The corresponding fashion stories and interviews are similarly inventive; with appealing twists on the menswear formula used by most publications. A full feature on the incredible one of a kind costumes of artist Christopher Kline, a conversational interview with Rick Owens and a unique accessories piece that pairs signet rings with jazz musicians; all things you’ll find within the pages of this thoughtfully edited glossy.
