We Are Dandy throws open the doors of the wardrobe and explores the dandy as a global phenomenon. From America to Africa to Asia, dandyism is a way of life. It is fashion in the best sense, self-esteem through style. And, in every country, it takes a unique form as dandies draw on the local context and fashion culture to shape their looks. With texts as witty as the subjects are stylish, this book pokes between the folds to let us know these exceptional individuals. More than a trend, fashion is who they are, the outer expression of their inner selves.
