Female dandyism is a crucial subculture that has transcended dress and bent traditional gender lines for over a century. Icons of the sartorial movement include Marlene Dietrich, Georgia O’Keefe, and Tamara De Lempicka. These artists explored androgyny by co-opting motifs of menswear and suit tailoring. Today, the black dandy furthers this groundbreaking representation, evident in the work of Harness Hamese. Ink celebrates the female dandy with “Well Suited” photographed by Maya Jackson.
