Beige by Michèle Adrienne

I do not come from Beige, I was made Beige. The first time I saw another Beige, I stared and Beige stared back.

Beige seeks to create radical imagery through the imposing of black bodies into a traditionally non inclusive aesthetic. By adapting garments and symbolism that has a cultural connection and significance to one’s social and economic standing in a historic context as well as a modern one. Re-appropriating styles taken from black heritage, shamelessly reclaiming the image of black bourgeoisie, and reinterpreting mass beauty standards of black fashion and hair.
