Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style by Shantrelle P. Lewis

Black dandyism itself is not new; originating in Enlightenment England’s slave culture, it has continued for generations in black cultures around the world.


Dandy Lion presents and celebrates individual dandy personalities, designers and tailors, movements and events that define contemporary dandyism. Throughout the book, self-expression is communicated through personal style, clothing, shoes, hats, and swagger. Lewis’s carefully curated selection of contemporary photographs surveys the movement across the globe in spectacular form, with all of the vibrant patterns, electrifying colours, and fanciful poses of this brilliant style subculture.
