Gentlemen Of Bacongo

This book of photography by Daniele Tamagni focuses on The Sapeurs a group of well dressed dandies from The Congo. Designer clothes and accessories by Pierre Cardin, Roberto Cavalli, Dior, Fendi, Gaultier, and Gucci are the weapons in a nonviolent street war to determine who is the most stylish. The result is a vibrant and unique style not seen anywhere else in the world.

  • very nice.
  • This is just amazing. Vibrant, breathtaking, bold, and exhilirating to see. Bravo, gents!
  • So cool, I agree with Alice. No fear of color makes it even more unique.
  • I saw a documentary about this. It is taken very seriously. The way they display their clothing is one that is a mix between dance, fashion show and theatre. It's a matter of a man carries himself. It has turned into a tradition which is passed down from father to son.

  • pimpin!
  • that's pretty dope. I like to see people go all out
