There is an amazing story behind the Sapeur's!
The African Society of Elegant People — the “SAPE” — was born in the years after the independences of Congo-Brazzaville and Zaire. Today there are two major schools of “SAPE”, respectively inspired by the French and Japanese aristocracy...Codified art of sham, glamour, and “hast thou seen” for some, but for others the SAPE is a metaphysic — a special relation with the question of being and appearance."

These seem to be to go-to places when it comes to "street-style" and what's hot in general on most fashion blogs, but I just wanted to share some of the street-style you'll find on the African continent. Most of these were taken by Chris Saunders, a South African based photographer whose made it a point to capture the emerging style of South African youth.
