House of Cinnamon s/s 2014

Last week we went to the launch of House of Cinnamon‘s summer 2014 collection. We’re big fans of the brand and were pleased to see that they have extended their range to include clutch bags and sandals, sliders, brogues and loafers. Handmade shoe heaven!

Flat shoes are reigning supreme right now – even Victoria Beckham has been seen out of her usual skyscrapers. The look is practical chic and low key, and House of Cinnamon’s spring/summer 2014/15 collection is just that. The range has a classic, sophisticated colour palette, as well as bold, brave florals and patterns.

TIP: The new way to wear pumps is to pair them with flowing silhouettes, dreamy fabrics and loose-fitting dresses. Opt for a solid bright or mix prints by contrasting a printed design with a floral dress.

Each pair of House of Cinnamon shoes is handcrafted in South Africa using luxe fabrics and
leather, and each design is produced in limited numbers to retain the brand’s exclusivity.

a new discovery

There is a gorgeous new cafe just up the road from where we live. We like to go there and drink good coffee (Bean There), eat breakfast and do some work (free WiFi). Four & Twenty is run by two young chefs, and friends, who while on a gastronomic tour through France, had a dream of running their own place. Which they now do really well. Besides the awesome breakfasts, there’s an ever-changing lunch menu too and a fresh produce deli section. We recommend you pay Four & Twenty a visit soon. It’s worth it.

We also got quite a few compliments on our new Cinnamon shoes. Beautiful, genuine leather and locally handmade. They’re divine!

shoes, glorious shoes…

One of the (many) things we love about summer is shoe shopping! Here are some of our top picks…

We’re loving the full bloom floral campaign at the Edgars Shoe Gallery stores (Bloem, Benoni, Jozi, Chatsworth, Phalaborwa and Umtata). These stores, with more to come around SA, offer a ton of awesome shoe brands including Steve Madden, Aldo, Polo and Sissy Boy. So get to your nearest and invest in some beautiful, bright shoes! Also, can I just mention that this awesome campaign was executed by John Brown Media SA – a very cool company, and where I work on Edgars Man, lucky me!

If you’re a little wary of too much colour, perhaps a walk on the wild side is in order? Locally made Cinnamon shoes are way up there on our list of ‘must-haves’, especially these animal print ones. View more of the spring/summer ’13 collection here (plus, if you pop a pair of used children’s shoes in your courier bag when your new Cinnamons are delivered, you’ll get 15% off your purchase and the kiddie shoes will be donated to Nkhensani Orphanage). Nice!

Metallics are big on our radar for those days when we’re running around in jeans and T-shirts with our mama hats on. These Nine West flats in the season’s favourite metallic, rose gold, will do just fine 🙂 (they’re also available in silver).

Happy shopping!
