Modern Dandy

Reposted from Sophia Wallace (via The Huffington Post).

“Often misunderstood as superficial, the dandy is rather a space of creative possibility where men and women can perform a persona in ways that reach far beyond the narrow binary constructs of masculine and feminine.”

One Response to “Modern Dandy”

    Clothing, fashion, and style have always been a form of communication. Some people like to perfect that communication and learn how to make it say exactly what they want. Others (like me) just communicate “Hey, I’m wearing clothes; what more do you want?” :) Not that I can’t appreciate fashion as art; I totally do. I just don’t want to bother with wearing it.

    I like this pic. It’s very simple, very uncomplicated, and yet very pretty. Too many fashion designers make their stuff overly complex and busy–you don’t get the chance to appreciate the simplicity of color and form. You see too much stuff going on in once piece, and it makes you sympathize with those painters who decided to just paint a canvas all one color, like they’re saying, “Okay, back to basics, people; stop getting distracted by all this stuff and learn to just enjoy it.”
