Dandemonium - The Dandy Defined
Journalist, author and curator, Robin Dutt has worked on this book for well over a decade. His purpose is to put the concept of the Dandy into historical, social and aesthetic context. Dandies of the past - Beau Brummell, Count d'Orsay, Lord Byron are all in the spotlight. But to show Dandyism's contemporary relevance, Robin has also included a stellar cast of gentlemen he has interviewed or met, as extensive chapter conclusions, from Sir Hardy Amies to Andy Warhol, Quentin Crisp to AA Gill, Pierre Cardin to David Sylvian.
