MIKE KAGEE



         The art of power dressing and
         making fashion a religion.
         Italian photographer Daniele
         Tamagni saw the potential
         and got a group of Congolese
         dandies oozing with swagger and
         documented them for the world
         to take a peak.
         

       Beautifully clad men of all ages
       have created a fashion sub-culture
       that considers the possesion of
       of status that symbolizes the
       pinnacle of success.


     
       The group of elegantly dressed
       characters strut their stuff through
       the streets of the Congo like male
       peacocks showing off their   
       decadent dress against rural
       surroundings.


            
    The Gentlemen of Bacongo Homme
    are the new breed of men not afraid
    of colour and will continue to 
    influence the fashion world with 
    daring and innovative ideas as well
    as influencing new colour palettes
    and will live up to their very own
    colourful township Bespoke.
