Lougè Delcy created Dapper Lou to showcase the work and style of innovative men by publishing daily editorials and street style. His blog aims to inspire those interested in menswear and features work from fashion industry newcomers and legends alike.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Lougè is constantly inspired by the eclectic New York style. This is what sparked his interest to pursue a career in fashion. His internship at famed textile manufacturing company, Jakob Schlaeper helped develop his appreciation for the creativity, craftsmanship and business of fashion. Lougè’s path would later take him to Essence.com where he served as a freelance stylist and events writer.
An avid viewer of street-style blogs, Lougè found that sites exclusively dedicated to menswear were sparse. He began photographing men with admirable style to demonstrate exciting and refreshing spins to menswear. His lens has captured notable names such as Jason Wu, Terry Richardson, Nickelson Wooster and Scott Schuman of The Satorialist, whom he credits as inspiration.
