Member Price

Gentlemen of Bacongo has been signed by photographer Daniele Tamagni whose work is featured here. The book provides a fascinating insight to the vibrant street style of the 'Sapeurs', the elegant and immaculately dressed dandies from the heart of the Congo.

The Sapeurs today belong to 'La SAPE' (Societe des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Elegantes) - one of the world's most exclusive clubs. Members have their own code of honour, codes of professional conduct and strict notions of morality. Designer brands of suits and accessories are important to sapeurs, and they work hard to save as much money as they can to dedicate to the most beautiful suits and accessories they can find. But their amazing style is also based on strict rules of elegance, beauty and harmony of colors. They dress to impress, while also being ambassadors of etiquette, peace and music. The result is a unique and inspiring style, that has captured the imagination of people all over the world. The introduction is written by Paul Smith, one of the world's most renowned and influential menswear designers.
