start dreaming about the beach

It’s definitely not too early to start thinking about the beach. In fact, in Cape Town we’ve been enjoying some perfect spring beach days already. This summer I plan on taking the littles down to the beach as much as we possibly can. I can’t wait to feel the warm sand between my toes, breathe in that salty sea air and cool off in the ocean. There is just nothing better.

Here are a few must-haves on my beach list this season. Yes, there are lots of shoes but that’s not an issue is it?


1 Eden Kei bag, R300 // 2 Hertex beach blanket in Ocean, R395 // 3 Azura Freedom Slippers, R799 // 4 Cetaphil sunscreen from Clicks, R208.95 // 5 Espadrils, price on request // 6 Country Road at Woolworths visor, R399 // 7 Habits cotton kaftan top, R1 199 // 8 Soul sandals, price on request (online store coming soon, but for now you’ll find them in Jozi)

Adriaan Kuiters X JP + PICHULIK

Award-winning accessories designer Katherine-Mary Pichulik has teamed up with designer Keith Henning of Adriaan Kuiters and artist Jody Paulsen on their S/S15 collection. “The new prints we developed required new adornments to balance them and Pichulik’s aesthetic perfectly complimented the on-trend sporty-meets-arty collection and fabrics,” says Henning.

Fabrics such as knits, crêpe, chiffon, neoprene, cotton, twill and abaya form the perfect backdrop for Pichulik’s neckpieces, bracelets and earrings that were designed specifically for the various looks. “I wanted to create pieces that excite and as always created these colourful and bold designs for women who push the boundaries and honour beauty,” says Pichulik.

PICHULIK’s brave women

Local jewellery brand Pichulik has launched its Brave Women series, an archive of intimate portraits of courageous women that wear Pichulik accessories.

The idea to celebrate these women came from meeting with, “some extraordinary women, some famous and some not, who astounded me with their unique bravery and beauty. The time I spent with them developed into conversations about femininity, intuition and inspiration,” says Katherine-Mary Pichulik.

The most recent woman to be the focus of the Brave Women campaign is Talia Sanhewe, the founder of a production company, entrepreneur and producer, formerly an award-winning reporter. Pichulik explains why Sanhewe was included in the campaign: “The first time I saw Talia was at a coffee shop. I did not know who she was but her beauty and manner oozed joy. I then met her at my very scary interview as Businesswoman of the Year finalist as she was one of the judges. When we finally met again and got to know each other I was struck by her story. It is rich with compassion, courage, vulnerability and authenticity. That’s when I knew that she was one of the Brave Women.”

Talia was photographed by Tommaso Fisceletti who also shot all the other women in the series that began with Lucie De Moyencourt, an architect, set designer and illustrator. All the women who participated in the series, and who will be introduced as the campaign rolls out, are creators in their own right. View Pichulik’s Brave Women series here.
