Sapeurs of London

Sapeur was a personal project by stylist Caroline Claude. Using the models XX and XX the aim was to purvey the sapeur style made famous by Congolese men in the late 90’s. Caroline did her own take on a modern sapeur style with the main focus being on expressing the style through make up.

We found a small community junkyard that, with some imagination, could look a bit like a Congolese township. The vibrant colours of old plastic bags, tarps and industrial tubing perfectly complimented the very bright colours of the clothes.
