Vogue Hommes Japan

I am grateful to grace the pages of one of my most favorite magazines, Vogue Hommes Japan.  Their photography is divine, and the styling progressive and very, very inspiring.  To all the boys and girls who’ve ever dreamt of being in Vogue, start creating something. And to my parents, Mom, Dad, I’m in a magazine!

Izzy Tuason of The Dandy Project in Vogue Hommes Japan vol. 9, Digital Manifesto

Vogue Hommes Japan: Why did you start to upload your personal style on your website?

Izzy Tuason: I started the blog as a mouthpiece for my thoughts on fashion and style. I thought that uploading photographs of my personal style gave a face to my thoughts and helped give credibility to my ideas by showing how I applied my views on fashion on the way I dress myself.

VHJ: How do you make your blog unique?

IT: The blog is known for the do-it-yourself (DIY) projects that I do to add a personal touch to my style. I also like to think that the way I write and my specific point-of view set The Dandy Project apart from the rest.

Number (N)ine sunglasses, Number (N)ine jacket, DIY overdyed silk shirt, Celine portfolio, Uniqlo jeans, Allen Edmonds shoes

VHJ: Are there any other websites you check in a daily basis?

IT: I check quite a wide range, sporadically.  A few of the ones I view regularly are the blogs Style Salvage and Pull Teeth, Nowness, Dazed, and The Coveteur, and my Twitter feed.

VHJ: What do you think is your position in fashion industry?/What made you start your website?

IT: I am a boy from Manila who likes to dress up and loves to talk about it.

VHJ: Do you go online shopping?

IT: Yes, my favorites are Park & Bond, LN-CC, and eBay.

VHJ: What is the key point of your style for this shoot?

IT: I wanted to show the range of my personal style while paying tribute to a great Japanese designer whom I admire: Takahiro Miyashita of the former Number (N)ine.

A resounding thank you to Emi Kameoka, Nicola Formichetti, and all you lovely people at Vogue Hommes Japan.

    Congratulations on the feature! I’m just curious about one thing – where do you get those Number (N)ine pieces? The menswear is obsolete yes? So assume you got them from eBay?

    I got all of my pieces at boutiques that used to carry the brand but were disposing of old stock. I’ll soon be scouring eBay for the remnants!

    How exactly did I miss this?!? Appearing in Vogue Hommes Japan or Vogue Italia is when you know you’ve “made it”, whatever that means…
