Lauren DiCioccio uses a simple needle and thread on cotton muslin to mummify and honor an endangered artifact– the printed newspaper. In each piece, as The New York Times’ text fades, its correlating cover portraits puncture the surface with pockets of strung together color, reminding us of a certain tactile human unraveling as we adaptively wave goodbye to the Industrial Age.
In a poor city in a poor country on a poor continent, there is a group of people with a singular purpose: to look rich.
Or, rather, to look good — and to fully embody the suave, elegant style that a wardrobe of three-piece suits, silk socks, fedoras and canes might suggest.
They are called sapeurs or members of the Societe des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Elegantes (the Society of Tastemakers and Elegant People). And when they go out, they turn the streets of Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of the Congo, into a fashion runway.

can all weekends be like this:
- Angela Davis lecture
- she still got it
- really though she’s as radical and captivating as the archive footage would suggest
- basements that smell nearly pleasantly of smoke
- feeling superior to others (i know, i know)
- biking home late at night
- sleeping in
- accomplishing things in mansueto
- grocery shopping can be calming
- dinner with nine people i like/love
- a room full of happy people dancing
- a room full of energy and so much music and so much happiness for hours and hours
- taking care of friends when they need it
- waking up early
- brunch with writers
- successful interviewing
- impromptu west side taco trip for cinco de mayo
- milk and brownies
- game of thrones
- getting to work
- going to bed

Bitch I might be.
most amazing night. one of the most beautiful ones. the sweaty pressed kind of beautiful.
thank you to this year and this quarter for bringing me closer to better people. people who walk home with me at night and say things that make me want to get to work the second I get home. people who don’t mince their words. people who just say better things. good people.
