Spring Summer 2016
the masculine and feminine elegance of the afro-dandy with its sartorial elements, fused with AVANT TOI’s avant-garde research and artistry.
The images tell an old-fashioned, enchanting and sentimental story interpret a multicultural and multiracial world without frontiers, with a natural and refined charm. The setting is Harlem, melting pot of Europe, America and Africa, which enriches each of its resident cultures with variegated colors and elements.

A city that could be New Orleans or Havana. An underground of colors and aromas, but above all the languid power of jazz that envelops the couple in a game between reality and dreams, past and present, where real and surreal overlap and combine. Light and shadow surround the tantalizing characters in a cinematic atmosphere.
