"People play dress up and play war games in the streets with civilians. ‘What are the police doing there?’, is my question. You’re not protecting the people…and you’re not protecting property, so why are you there?

Then a larger question I would also ask of the American people…is it ok to break the law or not? Because the cops are breaking the law left and right. It’s state law…state regulation to wear a badge and have a badge number and have a name tag visible. We have a right to freedom of the press. We have a right to assemble. They’ve blocked out air space so that the press cannot view what’s going on. They’re violating people’s rights, left and right. They’re firing tear gas and other projectiles into people’s homes…at people on their private property. So…is it ok to use violence to get what you want…or not? Because, a cop blew the head off of Michael Brown, shot a teenager 6 times…but Michael Brown’s the savage because he pushed a guy in a convenience store?

Like, you don’t own us anymore. You see? Either we all have the same inalienable rights…or we don’t. Back in the day we could have separate rights…but we’re not…that noise is dead now.”

Today’s style inspiration: Louis Philippe de Gagoue.

Hailing from both Cameroon and Cote D’Ivoire, the self-described eclectic fashion stylist, blogger and personal shopper is currently based in Morocco after half a decade living in neighbouring Tunisia.

With a style all his own, there’s a sense of vintage cool, classic sartorialism and modern vibrancy in almost everything he wears. From Congolese sapeurs to traditional North African garments, there’s always a strong African influence in de Gagoue’s visual aesthetic.
