VISUALS: AFRICA AND THE CITY (VANITY FAIR ITALIA, 2014)

In this editorial appeared in Vanity Fairy Italia in 2014, Kenneth Willardt shoots model Nur Hellman in the afrosartorial style of overlapping visual layers and strong contrasts of colours, textures, and pattern.

The use of European haute couture rather than African designers, shows that afrosartorialism is a form of Afro-centric presentation that doesn’t limit itself to engaging a black audience with clothes and accessories from Africa but that, none the less, creates a cosmopolitan ‘idea’ of the continent.
