DAPPER DAN #28 – A/W 2023
only a few left!
For its 28th issue, DAPPER DAN embarks on a journey to The Invisible City—a fictitious
metropolis without borders, tied together by shared beliefs, memories and chance. A
tribute to the communities, friends and neighbourhoods we encounter within the fertile
terrains of the magazine.
Taking us to the imaginary erotic city of his mind, Angelo Flaccavento ponders the question
of lust in this issue, and shares the images he draws he draws whilst naked. In an equally
heated text, Anastatio Koukoutas explores the city of commons as he seeks the poetry
of righteous riots.
We find a feeling of belonging as author Gabriel Krauze speaks to Kim Laidlaw about
being equally at home on a housing estate in London and on the front line in Ukraine.
Caleb Braaten, founder of Sacred Bones Records, talks to Faye Fearon about music as
an invisible network that brings us together. We also visit the Hydra Book Club and hear
about an island community of reading enthusiasts—including Malgosia Bela.
Milou Van Rossum retraces the invisible history of forgotten 1970s Dutch designer, Fong
Leng, and Matthew Hicks goes behind the scenes to interview Satoshi Kondo, artistic
director of Issey Miyake, in his atelier in Paris.
Our contributors also explore space and the way we move through it. Hordur Ingason and
Elena Psalti wander lonely as a cloud; Johan Sandberg and Mattias Karlsson reveal the
beauty in concrete flowers; Isabelle Wenzel and Chiara Ficola take us to Eutropia; and
Alvaro Beamud Cortes and Anastasia Barbieri seek refuge in Silencis
