We are pleased to present an exclusive story by photographer Mijean Rochus @mijeanrochus that perfectly highlights the beauty of the harmony of the fusion between culture, art, and luxury fashion.
Entitled “Kerian & Ridwan ‘Brothers Through Fashion and Art”, the story presents how fashion and art serve as bridges to unite, making us captivated by both models Ridwan Bouhaik @rdwnasl and Kerian Moranci @ker_mrc at Ednerson Models Management @ednersonmodels as well as the elegant line of bags they carry, masterpieces from Keur-Amy Langseth @keuramylangseth, a luxury must-have brand by Norwegian-Gambian designer Amy Langseth.
About the concept of the story, the photographer commented:
When conceptualizing this editorial, the spark ignited during my visit to Keur-Amy Langseth’s exhibition at Christie’s, followed by her pop-up store opening. The catalyst was the striking fusion of African art sculptures, particularly the kota adorning her luxurious handbags. The term “kota,” signifying unity and connection in Gabon, resonated deeply, much like the models Kerian (21years old) and Ridwan (19 years old) who, though distinct, shared a palpable brotherhood through fashion. This realization led to the seamless alignment of the young men and the opulent handbags as central elements of this narrative.
Models Kerian and Ridwan, hailing from Guadeloupe and with Senegalese French and Algerian heritage respectively, converged in Paris, binding their histories and shared passion for fashion. This synergy extended to their union with Keur-Amy Langseth’s handbags, which seamlessly blended luxury fashion with African artistry. The kota motif of attachment and unity further enriched this theme.Mijean Rochus , photographer
