If you think of iconic style in connection with cars, what springs to mind? The E-type Jag? Lamborghini? Or the cute factor of the Mini?
You probably wouldn’t be thinking back as far as this Mercedes Benz original model. And yet, it is the ultimate in style icons: the very first Benz Patent Motorwagen from 1886, restored and photographed on location in Cape Town for the Mercedes Benz 125th anniversary of the first ever motor car.
Prinz Productions facilitated the shoot in Cape Town and you can read more about this stills photography shoot and their photography production at their site, and enjoy more of photographer Torsten Klinkow’s stylish images.
Sass & Bide F/W 2011
Sass & Bide, the dynamic Australian fashion label are really rocking it this season with hot colour in their F/W 2011 collections. If hot oranges and pinks are you, then I bet you can’t wait until this selection reaches the stores very soon.
In the meantime the subtler colours and prints of their current summer 2011 collection are going down a storm. South Africa isn’t lucky enough to have a stand-alone Sass & Bide boutique, though we think they should come here soon! Luckily Shop label, the online designer fashion store, do stock a selection of Sass & Bide pieces, so phew!, we can get them here! Let’s hope they can get their hands on this gorgeous orange number!
