A celebration of style and cool, the original African Dandies represented empowerment and post-colonial freedom. They appropriated the flamboyance of the 18th Century English and French plantation owners as a defiance against slavery – a resistance movement.
By the 1960s Dandyism had become a phenomenon, a political statement and a way to preserve the legacy of African culture.
In the 21st Century, Dandyism is for everyone. Dress sharp. Present your best self.
