swedish hasbeens

i’m not really one for clogs, but i really really love these (with the wooden “clog” heel). they are made by a company called swedish hasbeens and they’re called braided sky high. each one is individually handmade - wow. can imagine they’d be perfect year round – as sandals in summer, with tights in winter … south african winters that is. love the label too. they ship worldwide, but a pair costs roughly R1800. at least you can be assured that they do indeed last a lifetime.

cape town & suburbs

family friends found this book in a vintage market in geneva, switzerland – of all places. now it has returned to sunny south african shores. i think it was printed in the fourties / fifties (no date unfortunately), though the postcards inside are all probably from the turn of the century. i love the cover. more at my flickr
