SANG BLEU #6______ finally !

The magazine SANG BLEU is part of a multidisciplinary project that encompasses, fashion, fetish, visual arts & performances but a distinctive feature of Sang Bleu remains its bound existence. Within the magazine seemingly contrasting topics like fetish & fashion to rap culture & music combine.
