12 hrs

001

i really love the idea behind 12 hrs, a new travel site launched by The Locals photographer Søren Jepsen and writer Anna Peuckert. much like my own city guide to Cape Town, they aim to give you tips “that aren’t about money, but about great discoveries from all around the world.” i wish i could have had their guide to Copenhagen handy when i visited there in 2007, now guess i can add another reason to go again.

TEN & Co.

tenco

you’ll remember the beautiful lookbook from shoemakers TEN & Co. that i shared last year. well, they have gone in a completely different direction to showcase their Spring 2013 collection! showing off their beautiful handmade shoes in sumptuous table settings of food & drink, reminiscent of the still life paintings from Dutch golden age artists like Pieter ClaeszWillem van Aelst, Jan Davidsz. de Heem and Willem Claeszoon Heda (to mention a few). be sure to check out the entire lookbook and read about the story behind these rad shoes.

Atem

011

ATEM caught my eye with their beautiful website and interesting lookbook (and the bags, of course). the brand was formed in 2011 by designer Nelson Abulencia, and is based in Germany. be sure to check out their site for more.

niko and…

002

thanks to Marize for introducing me to niko and … another cool looking Japanese mail order fashion company that (a) i can’t understand and (b) will probably never actually order from. well, like many things on the internet i shall just sit back and admire. especially their cute 30 days coordinate project (they are on day 17 now, so check back for more.)

Kruger Park

Miss Moss // Kruger Trip

Miss Moss // Kruger Park

i’m so excited to share these photos of our trip to the bush! a lot of what we saw couldn’t be captured on film – the animals are simply too fast for you sometimes, and most of the time they’re too far away to get a great shot – unless you have a telephoto lens (and you’ll see a lot of people with SERIOUS lenses in the park, trying to get that perfect shot). our best moments were experienced through binoculars – which are an essential item to have if you’re ever considering a trip to Kruger (or any game park in Africa).
