I recently had the honour of working alongside my very good friend and Cape Town's most loved Jewellery designer Karin from Dear Rae. Karin asked me to shoot her SS 2015 look book, titled 'Let's Get Tropsi'. Together we dreamed up the concept for the shoot, which had to have a distinct tropical vibe, yet still reflect the soft, delicate beauty and simplicity we all love about Dear Rae's designs. "This range is inspired by sensations of Summer; the bright sun, cool leafy shade and the feeling of fruity juice running down your chin. Let’s get Tropsi showcases all things tropical. Karin says: “This new range was inspired by the raw, lush and leisurely nature of my surroundings. I found that most of my designs hold aspects of naive shapes, capturing the light heartedness of summer.” The range launched a while ago, and yes, we're a little behind in our Journal entries, but if you haven't yet checked out her new collection or still need a Christmas gift for your wife/sister/friend/girlfriend/daughter :) be sure to check out Dear Rae's online shop or visit their store at The Woodstock Foundry.
