Man Shops Globe‘s co-executive producer and director Jeremy Simmons traveled to the far-flungs of the Earth with Anthropologie’s Keith Johnson. Here’s his blog post from South Africa:
Our last stop during our trip to South Africa shooting Man Shops Globe was at Magpies, which is an artists collective that creates chandeliers (among other things) from found objects and trash. Keith knew it was a very good thing and he was right. The chandeliers have since been shipped back to the US and ended up in some very prominent households. They are truly amazing. You’ll have to tune in to Man Shops Globe to see them and find out more.
After leaving Magpies, we were all on a real shopping high. I decided to celebrate the day’s finds by leaping from the highest bridge in Africa.
This is me obliging the staff photographer who insisted I give the “thumbs up.” It was a very good day.
