Daberechi and Olivia left Cape Town for a weekend escape through South Africa’s countryside.
It's been a while since I’ve been back to my hometown of Placerville, so I grabbed a few girlfriends and we drove north in an old Mercedes Benz station wagon. There is something so charming and timeless about the small towns that line the foothills of northern California.
We hit the road with a few close friends and headed up to Big Sur. We took the scenic route, driving through the vast Carrizzo Plain in our '72 pickup before heading up the coast to our cabin in the Big Sur hills. (Photography by Misha Taylor, Styling by Leah Adicoff)
It was an escape from the city life. In lieu of an internet connection, we spent our days feeding the chickens, hanging laundry and picking apples. (Photography by Misha Taylor, Styling by Katharina Mueller-Lutz)
We made stops in Sedona, Jerome and Arcosanti, before finally reaching the Grand Canyon. (Photography by James Branaman)
We hit the road in a 75 GMC RV with dresses from their collaboration. The RV broke down on Highway 1 and forced us to bunker down in a Big Sur motel, which wasn't the worst thing in the world. (Photography by James Branaman)
Who also happens to be a very talented photographer, was visting from Germany. He spent a day with Karina, who showed him around the westside of Los Angeles. (Photography by Christian Rinke)
It was special in that we had two sets of lovers and two photographers to capture the adventure. Both of whom shot solely on film. (Photography by Caroline Macintosh)
We climbed rock formations, shopped the local thrift shops, and wandered bare foot through the desert sands. (Photography by Misha Taylor)
We hiked trails that led us to the giant Sequoias and watched sunsets while soaking in the river. (Photography by Emily Knecht)
