The rebirth of cool

Some people are just cool. They can’t help themselves. It’s like having a beauty spot (or a third nipple), it’s inherited from your gene pool and there’s nothing you can do about it.

One such person is my friend Alexia. She’s a stylist here in Cape Town, and she has a blog, called just cos.

Check it out if you like cool stuff. (Ha see, I got you there, who doesn’t like cool stuff? Now you have to go and look.)

Here are some random images I pulled off her blog to give you an idea of the kind of stuff you might see there.


Skulls and animal heads on chains:


Reconfigured typewriter lampy things:


Chair-cases:

and paintings that make you want to lick them:

And minimalist:

And maximalist:

And the whooooole of joburg:

And of course, because this is Africa, some kids playing soccer:

and a drawing, that has a red background:

The stuff you find is beautiful, Alexia. Heart, heart, heart.
