I think that this is not dandyism, but it is funny.
Je croix que ça n'est pas du dandysme, mais c'est drole.
Non credo che questo sia dandismo, ma comunque è divertente.

Royal Family/Savile Row/Cricket [29 May 2008|10:02pm]

Each of the headline's component parts is utterly uncontroversial. But together, it certainly isn't a a headline one expects to see everyday. And, as if the location wasn't sacrilege enough, the use of a bat! Well, that just isn't cricket at all.
Osez !

‘Fashion and Despair’ by Valerie Stahl von Stromberg [03 Apr 2008|05:13pm]

The British photographer Nick Knight runs an experimental website called SHOWstudio. It is occasionally interesting and frequently, laughably, pretentious. A recent series of short-films - the site is nothing if not multi-media in ambition - has explored the subject of "political fashion". Most of the films last for around a couple of minutes, most of the films feel as if they have lasted for a couple of hours. Today's item is a short film about Dandyism that is described thus:

"Drawing on a wealth of fashion theory from Roland Barthes to Baudelaire selected by Philip Mann, Valerie Stahl Von Stromberg uses her Political Fashion film ‘Fashion and Despair’ to explore the idea of the dandy, while her imagery focuses on high-luxury trapped behind glass, desirable yet unobtainable."

So far it has received two comments on the SHOWstudio site. The first says:

The second was rather more succinct.

Personally, I think it was one of their better efforts (not that the standard has been exactly stellar in terms of accomplishment). Worth it just to have fun trying to identify the quotes from Roland Barthes, Charles Baudelaire, Gilles Lipovetsky and Ellen Moers.

The film can be found here.

First episode of a three part BBC series on Savile Row can be found courtesy of the BBCi player here, but only for a day or so as it will soon be supplanted by episode two (Monday).

Handy of the Year [04 Jan 2008|07:07pm]

Lapo Elkann, mio ex-concittadino, è stato eletto "Dandy of the Year" dal sito Dandyism.net (http://www.dandyism.net/?p=793) e uomo più elegante da Vogue America (http://www.style.com/vogue/feature/060507/page2.html).
Due considerazioni:
Un intellettuale che si fida di una volgare rivista da parrucchieri dovrebbe riconsiderare la sua "genialità".
Secondo: mai vista iniziativa più cretina di eleggere un dandy dell'anno (il test per sapere "quanto sei dandy" mi pareva già abbastanza allucinante).
Ma vediamo insieme qualche foto di Lapo Elkann:
