Editorial: Josué Comoe, Julio Goba & More in “Infro” by Mehdi Sefrioui

Viewed as a “poetic reprieve from the bitch that is reality,” Moroccan photographer Mehdi Sefrioui‘s shoot “Infro” is inspired by ‘Handbag Racism’ – a term used to describe the fashion industry’s preference for white models.

Moved by Moncler’s S/S’14 show, which used an all black cast of models to present its collection in Paris this past February, Sefrioui shot a gathering of great models against pretty, pink Parisian fauna, addressing the issue of runway diversity in fashion.

Styled by Laetitia Kandolo, the models – Gauderic Vilmaure, Josué Comoe, Julio Goba, Maël Caloc and Joseph Gio Degbadjowore designs by Issey Miyake, Ben Sherman and Diesel, amongst others, and were seen looking stylish throughout this sartorial statement against racism.
