Le SAPE-Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes (Society of Tastemakers and Elegant People)

a bit of inspiration for my designer friends in black and gray, from a beautiful book Gentlemen of Bacongo by Daniele Tamagni

A Congolese Sapeur is a happy man even if he does not eat, because wearing proper clothes feeds soul and gives pleasure to the body.

their elegance and color sense feeds my soul, too.
