Today we celebrating local design duo Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen, also know as AKJP. Apart from designing their own clothing line, Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen also own the AKJP Collective. A concept store in Cape Town brought to you to showcase local SA design at its best.

The duo was one of three local South African designers to be selected as one of the finalists in the Who Is On Next? Dubai scouting project launched by Vogue Italia and dedicating to discovering design talent from the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

I recently attended AKJP’s AW’16 fashion show and opted to wear something from the designers themselves. A shirt dress (which I actually think is a longer length tee from the guys section) from one of their previous collections. I wanted an overall athleisure look so teamed the tee with the new “it” sneaker from adidas Originals, the NMD’s, and knotted hair instead of boxer braids. My final touch was my dark lip, Plum and Base, courtesy of Catrice.

With the duo making waves in the design industry both locally and abroad I think we can expect some extraordinary things from Keith Henning and Jody Paulsen.

Old Mac Daddy

November 16, 2015

MLIP_October_Old-Mac_195

There’s nothing quite like escaping a week of madness like a trip out into the countryside.
Old Mac Daddy in Elgin is my go-to spot, it’s only an hour out of town and has the perfect balance of comfort and nature. (But more about Old Mac Daddy in tomorrow’s blog post.)

It was still a little chilly in the early mornings and late evenings out in the country side so I made sure to pack some warmer items. My striped poncho was the perfect comfort item to cuddle up in next to the fire or throw on for my morning walks amongst the fynbos and apple orchards.

The tee’s will only be available for another two week’s, so make sure you head down to 110 Long Street to get yourself one. They only R70!
