fashion: ibeyi strike a pose for ubikwist magazine – lensed by jean-baptiste mondino

October 19, 2015

Take a look at Ibeyi‘s latest editorial. The images were lensed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino for Ubikwist Magazine, and styled by the magazine’s Edior-in-Chief Giannie Couji. Couji tells us, “The inspiration is JB and I are big fans of the girls, a friend of mine has a friend somehow who knew their manager so we went straight to the source send the PDF of issue 0, I guess they like it and say yes so I get in touch with Jean Baptiste and he said yes right away but coordinating the shoot was quite hectic because they were touring but we managed to have them for a few hours and the atmosphere on set was quite amazing. I find them very inspiring and incredibly beautiful and talented and full of energy. The digital copy is available through website at A limited Edition hard copy will be available early november to buy also through the website”. Check out the images below (featuring designs from AFROPUNK collaborator Xuly.Bet).
