Dapper Dan teaches good old hippie cool
One of the most puzzling magazines I ‘ve seen lately: Dapper Dan.
126 pages in black and white. With lots of photo’s in it, and… many bearded young men. On the cover: long haired black bearded musician with hat. Are we back in the seventies of the last century?
According to the publication itself, Dapper Dan is a men’s magazine that is interested in inspiration, not novelty; in looking good on one’s own terms rather than being spoon-fed trends. It is clear that Dapper Dan is a style guide, but not a guide for slick urban fastmoving professionals. Dapper Dan is a guide to old fashioned hippie cool.
It is created in Athens, Greece, by an international team and published twice a year, spanning fashion, culture and philosophy through creative photography and thoughtful texts. Eschewing the clichéd rules of men’s magazines, it follows a spirit, not a format. Dapper Dan is for the man who doesn’t feel he should have to be like everybody else.
