One of my FAVOURITE creative duos, photographer Alix-Rose Cowie and stylist slash advertising whizz gal slash most fashionable girl in Cape Town Kate Desmarais have created a beautiful lookbook for local jewellery range Pichulik. I’m blogging about this from NYC, because I couldn’t wait, but also because even though I am surrounded by cool shit over here – I’m really, REALLY proud of what’s going on back home. I am reminded of that every day as we walk the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan.
hello! so we are in NYC and it is amazing. I wasn’t planning on checking in while we’re on our honeymoon (sacrilege) – but I see there have been some technical difficulties with images in the blog posts I scheduled. I’m sorry about that, and unfortunately I do not have my computer with me so it can’t be fixed. that means no new posts until we are back in Cape Town.
Food Studio is a Norwegian collective of food professionals, designers and photographers who love, well, food. and natural, Nordic food at that. i first came upon their beautiful design work done by Oslo based studio Bielke + Yang, and then delved a bit into what makes Food Studio tick. they host interesting events, like this one that marries food + music, and set out to challenge the daily way we think about and work with food.
i thought i had it all figured out. i’d schedule a ton of posts, get married, go on honeymoon and just not look at the internet for 3 weeks or something. of course that did not happen. the wedding weekend took over and i just let go. we got together with our family and friends on a rustic fruit farm about 2 hours away from home, set up the reception (with the help of my amazing bridesmaids) and the rest just unfolded… exceeding every expectation we could have ever had. it was the best day ever.
the Forest History Society is probably exactly what you think it is – an archive dedicated to collecting, preserving, and disseminating forest and conservation history. they have an extensive collection of photographs that have been digitised, that you can search through here, as well as an online gallery sorted by subject. i found some of their best photographs over at their flickr page. makes you want to go camping, doesn’t it?
Kip & Co is an australian homeware brand that i discovered through the portfolio of photographer Armelle Habib, who shot their Dappled Dreams collection. they design what i would like to call epic bedding. i’ve always been a white sheets kinda gal, but if i had to dip my toes into something bright and colourful then this is the direction i’d go in.
when we first got engaged i blogged about French bridal designer Laure de Sagazan, and now we’re getting married in less than 5 days – so i thought i’d show you their beautiful new collection. these are dreamy & timeless lace creations, don’t ask me how much they cost, but if you are ever lucky enough to wear one you should probably hand it down to your daughters.
i don’t know why it has taken my quite so long to dedicate a post to brilliant Cape Town based photographer Nico Krijno, i suppose it’s because his work is so well known here. but if you have not seen his imagery before let me introduce you. more at his website and at his tumblr. the girl in the pics is his lady, Mignonne.
