Described as “your Summer 2013 pilgrimage” by GQ, the Artist/Rebel/Dandy: Men of Fashion is the ultimate exhibition you really need to attend this season.
As the title itself states, this exhibition doesn’t want to define the very debated and poliedric figure of the dandy, on the contrary it rather explores the wide range of the figures, personas and styles that this category consists of.
The RISD Museum in Providence is therefore presenting a wide variety of artistic manifestations regarding this subject, both from the past and from more recent days, ranging from old caricatures, to the pictures of John Waters or Stephen Tennant, from the legendary Andy Warhol’s silver wigs, to the possibly last remaining shirt owned by Oscar Wilde himself, from a great collection of tailored-to-perfection garments to the pictures of Waris Ahluwalia or Patrick McDonald in their whimsical suits, and the list goes on.
With the contribution of other organizations from all over the world and the donations of private individuals, this exhibition manages to deeply explore the dynamic, ever-changing figure of the dandy and the result is not just a frivolous depiction of dandyism but it’s culturally relevant and highly “erudite and charming” (Style.com).

The next will be the season of bright colors. So, say ‘No’ to primary color in the wardrobe of summer and ‘Yes’ to the explosive charge and energizing colors contagious positivity.
Neon pop colors light up the male wardrobe for spring and summer and there’s no list for wearing them: keep in mind that the charge of positive energy has more effect if spontaneous.
Steve & Co. suggests a lot of cool accessories to bright up your wardrobe: bow ties, suspenders, pins and more to add a spicy twist to your look.
For the pale faces? A garment or accessory to go with a pair of jeans will give a touch of style, able to ignite like beacons in the night…

Steve & Co. was at Bread & Butter a ‘tradeshow for selected brands’, but mostly an innovative trade fair event for contemporary clothing culture.
The internationally prevailing trade show provides a creative marketing and communication platform for selected brands, labels and designers from the progressive segment that is unrivalled throughout the world.
The brands exhibiting at Bread & Butter present themselves integrally, in keeping with their individual philosophy and within their own brand culture and emotional setting.
But Bread & Butter is also a truly maven for fashionistas, industry people and streetstyle photographers alike. I bet there is no other place in Europe where the cool people per square meter ratio would be higher this week…
We saw very ‘Steve & Co. style’ people featuring bow ties, pins, bandanas and stuff like that…cool!
