Dapper Dan 06

Issue 6 of our beloved Dapper Dan magazine – one of the best indie fashion magazines as New York Magazine stated-  is out and we have to share it with you.

Dapper Dan is an inspiring men’s magazine that enjoys opinionated men. Intelligent and authentic men with a sense of purpose, as their manifesto declares. Independent and spirited, it resists to the athenian melancholy by issuing light and emotion.

Fashion editor (and our teacher) Nicholas Georghiou, photographer Vassilis Karidis and creative director Ismini Adami have created a beautiful magazine. Minimalistic, black-and-white, in a clean layout that remains creatively loyal to the classic typography aesthetics, it manages to avoid every clichéd rule of men’s magazines.

In Dapper Dan’s sixth issue Francois Halard, one of the worlds most highly regarded interior and architectural photographers, talks to Filep Motwary about his work, inspiration, lessons and mistakes. Artist Panos Papadopoulos shares his thoughts about abstract ideas in his object d’art studio in Athens. Stephen Jones, England’s most beloved milliner, discusses success, philosophy and of course hats. Finally, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, the unbreakable designer duo of the house of Valentino, confide about modernism, elegance and the “Valentino man”.

Dapper Dan stands equally among the best independent fashion magazines in selected places around the world like Tate Modern in London, Colette and Palais de Tokyo in Paris, bookstores and galleries in New York, Berlin or Tokyo.
