What makes a Dandy?

If there was ever an exhibition to pique our interest, it was bound to be one outlining - in remarkable detail - the composite elements of the dandy.

The show, "Dandy", has one soul aim, and that's to showcase what makes a dandy tick.

Royal Academy it ain't, but the show - which is beautifully curated - is definitely worth a look. Unfortunately for us, it's in Stockholm's Nordiska Museet, so a bit further than a train ride away. Here's hoping the dandy's back on the road soon.

Dandy will remain in situ at Stockholm's Nordiska Museet until May 15 2011
