The Wemba Purple Velvet Men's Trousers
Our high waisted narrow legged tailored trousers in a sumptuous purple velvet are a superb fit and we have translated the style across tweed and corduroy too. We have named them after one of our musical heroes, the king of Rumba rock, Papa Wemba: a Congolese musician who did much to spread the joy of African music and the cult of the SAPEUR beyond his country’s borders.
Angelique Kidjo remembering le Pape de la SAPE soon after his death:
"Papa Wemba was saying dressing well is not just a matter of money, not just something for Westerners, but that we Africans also have elegance. It was all about defining ourselves and refusing to be stripped of our humanity."
