Stockholm Exhibit Explores the Modern Dandy


Curated by Swedish design studio Form Us With Love, the Dandy exhibit at Stockholm’s Nordic Museum examines what the makings of the modern “Dandy” are. Seven men, all members of the fashion industry, were asked to style an installation to represent their interpretation of the modern Dandy. The participants, tailor Frederik Andersen, fashion researcher Rickard Lindqvist, journalist Olaf Enckell, stylist Lalle Johnson, author Björn af Kleen, designer Göran Sundberg and shop owner Christian Quaglia were guided by the following description:

“A dandy is a person with integrity to express themselves through their clothes, whether the style is soft-spoken, colorful, conservative or innovative thinking.”

Their installations will be on display at Stockholm’s Nordiska Museet through May 1st.
