Dec 13, 2018 | Trends

Things to see, trends to spot and places to be

6 SHIP SHAPE The resilience and reliability of OMEGA Seamaster diving watches, which date back to World War II, live on in timepieces more aesthetically suited to civilian life. As part of the 70th anniversary celebrations, OMEGA is releasing the 1948 collection of four limited-edition tributes to those early timepieces: two stainless steel models and two luxury platinum editions.

7 READY, SET, STOW Stow makes travel more stylish with its matching three-piece Jet Set travel collection inspired by the golden age of travel, the 1950s to the 1970s. The three retro-shaped pieces – the Monte Carlo weekend case, the Capri carry case and the Amalfi pilot bag – are handcrafted in tan leather.

8 IN GOOD SPIRITS Tokara has released its first 10-year old pot-still brandy. A dream long held by owners GT and Anne-Marie Ferreira, it’s a natural progression from Tokara’s acclaimed five-year old brandy, first released in 2004. Made in a Pruhlo alembic pot still, considered to be one of the world’s finest stills for producing quality spirits, it’s available at the cellar door and fine wine purveyors.

9 FYN DINING Renowned chef Peter Templehoff’s new venture FYN in the Cape Town CBD is a dream years in the making. He has teamed up with his former executive chef of Greenhouse, Ashley Moss, and Jennifer Hugé to deliver an exciting and engaging experience inspired by South Africa’s cultural heritage within the framework of contemporary fine dining.

10 THE XX FACTOR Culinary experience designer Hannerie Visser and her Studio H team have launched FOOD XX, a movement aimed at celebrating and empowering women in South African food. This will take the form of an annual conference and awards ceremony honouring trailblazers from all food fields in early 2019, and will exist online throughout the year as digital content.
