editor’s letter

The other night, while randomly flicking through channels trying to calm myself down after a torturous two hours of getting our three-year-old into his own bed, I stumbled on Sofia Coppola’s cooler-than-cool 2006 movie, Marie Antoinette. It’s not a recent release, of course – I have noticed a pattern in which I tend to re-view older favourites on repeat. (And that’s in addition to endlessly watching The Voice and America’s Got Talent reruns on YouTube, because who wouldn’t want to hear a subversive moody cover of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’?)Anyway, I digress: back to the teen queen. As I watched, I started to take in all the little details that I had missed during previous viewings. The thin grosgrain ribbon that’s used as a…

it’s in the details

(PHOTOGRAPH: CARLA LATSKY) One of my favourite luxury brands is Cape Town-based Missibaba, which makes a beautiful range of leather bags. I own one and, as I’ve never been a delicate type, I’ve treated it horribly over the years as my daily bag – yet it’s still in great shape.Some years ago, we were at Missibaba’s Bree Street branch and a friend of a friend went into the shop to take a look.
