Cape Verde Photo Journal: Aylaan Moodysson
Thanks to our friend and photographer muse; Aylaan Moodysson, we've been taken to the untouched island of ocean blues, wind and sodade; Cape Verde. Sodade or saudade, is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one cares for and/or loves. "Cape Verde really is a place that rewards doing some research upfront. The islands are fairly diverse, and I think each of them has its own sweet spot." Are you ready to escape and switch the urban vibes for breathtaking natural landscapes? Take a closer look at Aylaan's personal photo diary she took in Cape Verde just before the pandemic.
Dreaming of Australian Summer with St. Agni
As summer is approaching, we've interviewed the St. Agni team behind our favourite handmade loafers and linen clothing. Founded in the coastal town of Byron Bay, Australia in 2014 by Lara & Matt Fells, St. Agni is a luxury lifestyle brand built from humble beginnings. The Label was created with a vision to create functional, refined, quality pieces that Lara couldn’t seem to find elsewhere. Before the item is considered comes the concept and the feel of the collection. "In another life Lara would have been an Architect – Architecture and Art inspire St. Agni designs and surface time and time again in the initial concept. The company lives by their “Less is more” philosophy and practise this across all aspects of their business in an effort to avoid excess of any kind." The Company cherish the handmade process, the art and creation that goes into each pair and the personal element involved. Let's celebrate this thoughtful approach fashion!

Mother's Day Muse: Louisa Chalatashvili
To celebrate Mother's Day, we interviewed our long-time muse; Louisa Chalatashvili about motherhood, the most kid-friendly spots in Tbilisi, her most inspiring travels and her passion for photography. It’s no secret that Louisa is one of our favourite photographers and more than that; a real muse, a mother and our ambassador for Tbilisi. Formerly lawyer by profession, Louisa turned her passion, photography into her full-time job. What we find amazing in Louisa’s photography and her aesthetic approach is that the energy and vibe of the new-wave Georgia shines through. The way she plays with subtle tones, harmony and magical lights is impeccable. She’s showing the new face of Georgia and Tbilisi; hip hotspots, its breathtaking nature and the striving creative scene. On a personal note, Georgia is a country where you can experience the sea, mountains, and culture in one trip but also the kindest of people and a real gastronomic treat. Speaking of gastronomy, Louisa and her husband are running a super cool restaurant called Cafe Daphna that prides with homemade 100% organic Chacha and artisan Khinkali variations.
