Gentlemen of Bacongo by Daniele Tamagni
After The Sartorialist and Face Hunter, the street-pic book to have is that of Daniele Tamagni, Gentlemen of Bacongo, which showcases the dandyish “sapeur” culture. The sapeur phenomenon has its origins in the suburbs of Brazzaville. The Sape (Society for the Advancement of People of Elegance), has become one of the most exclusive clubs with branches in Kinshasa, Paris, Brussels and London. The sapeur style is a unique and disturbing blend of elegant and decadent colonial style, but is also clearly futuristic, rounded out by moral codes and a sense of honoring individuals.
