We are proud to present our latest collaboration, a Daily Paper x Filling Pieces capsule collection that celebrates years of shared friendship and collaboration. Reflecting each brand’s continued mission to bridge the gap between fashion and heritage.
Inspired by the legendary Sapeurs, our collection was informed by their unique character and the vibrancy of their style. Highlighting how each member dons impeccable outfits that reflect their individuality. Cultivating the idea of personal pride and beauty within their communities by celebrating fashion in its purest form.
Originating in the 1920’s, members of the Sape community come from the working class, men, women, and children who are celebrated within their communities for the dedication they have for their self expression and style. Often foregoing other basic necessities, Sapeurs quite literally live for fashion, saving up months at a time for a single garment. Which they wear proudly as they walk their neighborhoods.
Our Daily Paper x Filling Pieces capsule celebrates this diverse cultural movement in our own unique way. Tapping into our expertise, and each brand’s most iconic silhouettes, to bring you a celebration of heritage at its purest. An imagination of how cold weather would transform the streets of Congo, from Brazzaville to Kinshasa in the idea of a united Congo and in the spirit of the Sapeurs walking the streets.
