Hélène and Célia Faussart of Les Nubians talk about their new album, African fabrics, and jeans that fit.
NEW YORK — Tuesday in the music biz is big — it’s the day new records are released. On a recent Tuesday, French sister duo Hélène and Célia Faussart of Les Nubians launched their second album and wrapped up their 12-city tour for "One Step Forward," which had the highest Billboard 200 debut of any French-language album in 20 years. They took time to sit down for a WWD photo shoot before heading to Paris to see family and friends. You can easily see that their warm, good-natured spirit is part of their success, which comes through in their funky, streetwise brand of R&B music.
