Watch: Guinness Europe Short Documentary On The Stylish 'Sapeurs' Of The Congo

Filmed in present day Brazzaville Congo, Guinness Europe introduces us to small knit group of men known as the 'Sapeurs' with an undying love for fashion.

The ‘Sapeurs’ of the Congo are a society of elegant men, who are not defined by their circumstances living with Joie De Vive (The Joy of Living). Guinness Europe followed this group of people documenting their lives as fashion lovers who regardless of their situation, fashion brings happiness in their everyday survival.

The short documentary explores and highlights brightly coloured and social affairs that bring the ‘Sapeurs’ together.

According to Guinness Europe,

Their bold choice to live an unexpected lifestyle is a source of celebrated originality and positivity. Their life is not defined by occupation or wealth, but by respect, a moral code and an inspirational display of flair and creativity. The Sapeurs show us that whilst in life you cannot always choose your circumstances, you can always choose who you are.

If you have had a chance to meet some Congolese people, then this documentary is no surprise. They take their fashion seriously.
