In this issue we embrace the spirit of Heritage month through the trends that are pushing Africanness forward. Heritage allows us to constantly rediscover ourselves and thus celebrating the Living Legacy: Places and Spaces with Enduring style.

The issue is a melting pot of inspiration from local creatives from near and far who contribute to telling African stories like Victor Dlamini. We also look into the rich tapestry of our roots and discover how Africans have expressed their identity through design for years.

Our cover story is a prime example of the African embrace, we went into the home of Guiyani Monterto, a mother and the creative director of We Are Ants – a platform that promotes creative expression and collaboration through pop-up and collaboration. The Parkwood home which she shares with her husband and young son, is a repository of collectible items.

We have explore an eclectic home in Marrakech which gives us inspiration that leans to organic materials and subtle colours in Shop The Look: the resurgence of woven baskets in everyday home use and antique furniture.
