Visits: Coppelia

Miss Moss | Visits: Coppelia

this is the fourth instalment of VISITS, a series in collaboration with Monya Eastman.

there’s a Mungo and Jemima store just around the corner from my office in Cape Town’s city centre, and so i usually find myself popping in there in-between errands and lunch runs. the last few times i have agonised over this coat by Coppelia (which will make you channel Olivia Pope). i always try it on and then sadly put back on the rack because, let’s face it, i have too many coats. so it was nice to meet the woman behind this inspiring local brand, as well as the lovely women who work with her in the Coppelia studio in the east side of Cape Town.

Visits: Peter Eastman

Miss Moss | VISITS: Peter Eastman

this is the third instalment of VISITS, a series in collaboration with Monya Eastman.

walking into Peter Eastman‘s studio on the east side of the city made me realise how many little gems must be hidden all over Cape Town. Peter is actually Monya’s brother-in-law, which made this VISIT a relaxed affair. he showed us the new pieces he was working on for his upcoming exhibition at Smac, and all around the studio were trinkets from by his daughter Jemima – a drawing of a lion, a statue of a cat, rocks collected from the Karoo…

i love discovering or meeting people who try their hands at many creative pursuits. such is the case with Cape Town creative Amor Coetzee, who creates simple line drawings and clay pieces inspired by “her mood and favourite places along the ocean and in between the mountains.”

That dress

THAT DRESS | Jenni le Grange photography

i don’t look at wedding blogs at all anymore, mostly because my interest in all things wedding peaked around the time we got married. i still follow a few wedding photographers on Instagram, because i admire their talent and i love seeing when they share genuine moments (rather than, say, amazing floral centrepieces). that’s how i discovered Jenni le Grange, a wedding photographer based in Cape Town, and while browsing through her website i saw THE MOST AMAZING DRESS.

Double Tap: Tomas Wells

“thank you Instagram, for introducing me to talented people i would otherwise never know about.” – i feel like that needs to be said every day. because that’s how i came across Tomas Wells, who takes great photos in Cape Town and beyond. follow him! he has a website, too. oh and yes – Cape Town is this beautiful.

if you’ve been lucky enough to visit the Wild Coast in South Africa you might have come upon some super chill cows having a great day at the beach. it is always a delight for me to see the cows when we travel to Kei each year for our summer holidays, they even gate-crashed our engagement!

Summer at The Table

The Table photographed by Miss Moss

last year i took some new photos at The Table to use on their website. i love the casual flowers that are always such a sweet feature on their tables (all thanks to Jess’ husband Luke!) – they remind me of the colourful flowers that they had at their wedding. we ate the most delicious twice baked cheese souffle and some kind of gorgeous homemade ice cream – the flavour of which escapes me now, but the mmm-memory remains. The Table is open on the weekends, and you have to book because they are naturally insanely popular. if you haven’t visited yet, what are you waiting for?
