The Sapeurs of Pitti -  Florence
La Sape, an abbreviation based on the phrase Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes (literally "Society of Ambiance-Makers and Elegant People") is a social movement born in Brazzaville in the Republic of Congo. An adherent of La Sape is known as a sapeur. The movement embodies the elegance in style and manners of colonial predecessor dandies.
The Italian photographer, Daniele Tamagni unfortunately prematurely passed away, had told them in an extraordinary reportage.
Since some years we can meet someone of them or someone that is inspired by the movement or, again, remembers their dandy style, in the main fashion events.
Not all of them come from Africa but they share a sense of belonging associated with an unmistakable style. More on my website
