NEW YORK — French sister act Hélène and Célia Faussart of Les Nubians effect a style as eclectic as their music. Drawing from their French-African background, the pair have broken new ground with their latest album, “One Step Forward,” which had a warm reception on our sometimes-Francophobic shores. From left, Hélène wears a See by Chloé velvet jacket, Akdmks’ cotton and viscose top and Armani Jeans denim skirt; Célia is in Coolwear’s polyester blazer, Armani Jeans’ wool and polyamide sweater and Plein Sud Jeans’ wool and metallic skirt. For more on Les Nubians, see pages 2 and 3.
