Recreating Fosso’s historic set design in his Paris studio, these new images feature a selection of Wales Bonner archival silhouettes in dialogue with other ready-to-wear and accessories collections, underlining Grace Wales Bonner’s exploration of luxury via a hybrid of European and Afro-Atlantic approaches.
Each issue of A Magazine Curated By Grace Wales Bonner features 1 of 8 limited edition Samuel Fosso gloss photographic prints inside.
