Oh Malik Sidibe. Your photographs are endless inspiration. HOW DID I NOT KNOW WHO YOU WERE UNTIL NOW?!!!!
Malik took most of these photographs in the 60's and 70's in Mali during a time where youth culture had been freed up by Mali's new independence from France. Before this time, young men and woman were not allowed to dance close to each other, and they wanted to DANCE... and these photos reflect youth exploring their new found freedom.
Uhhh... this photo is gorgeous, and I want to live it.
You can watch the documentary on Malik and his photographs HERE.
Spring inspiration for days!
I want to pair any of these prints and dresses with my leather motorcycle jacket, penny loafers (from below post) and DONE! Spring wardrobe/uniform ON LOCK!
