RiTUAL PRojects is a contemporary version of a "Cabinet de Curiosités" formed organically from shared values in aesthetics and ethics. Hailing from the Far West, Far East, Northern and Southern hemispheres, I've assembled a selection of like-minded individuals who are driven by authenticity and put creativity and quality to the forefront of their work. From fashion pioneers and designers, gallery owners, baristas to pastry chefs, they are all artisans in their own way proposing a new "luxury" based on bringing back the "hand-made" to this machine-driven époque, with a focus on craftmanship, revealing the undercurrent of humanity that exists in the fashion world and beyond.

Graanmarkt13 restaurant has renewed food concept under direction of Chef Seppe Nobels. The preparations are healthy and light with the emphasis on seasonal and regional cuisine. Fish from the North Sea is selected according to what’s on offer on the market. Meat is procured from carefully selected regional suppliers. Vegetables come from the field. Nature is very important: animals and plants deserve to be raised in a respectable manner. Graanmarkt13 offers a daily varying choice of fish, meat or vegetarian dishes ‘to share’ for lunch. For dinner there is a 3-course menu, which changes frequently. And as appetizers there are several small dishes to share. To be able to guarantee even fresher products Graanmarkt13 starts with city agriculture: 40 m2 of herbs and vegetables in the garden and on the roof. Good pollination is a necessity to bear a rich crop and that is what the bees, placed in between the herbs and vegetables in bee hives, are responsible for. To further explain the importance of bees Graanmarkt13 and bee-keep BoechoutseHoning.be organize active workshops under the guidance of Rik Janssens. During a honey dinner or lunch he does not only explain the life of bees, but every participant gets to wear a bee-keepers’ s hood and is shown the bee hives to link practice to theory. Special work shop will be organized during the honey harvest to let participants join in harvesting honey from the hives, removing the caps and extracting the honey from the frames via a spinning machine.
SUKA's fall/winter 2013 collection fits perfectly to the cold seasons with a combination of high-quality, warming materials and great trend colours. The styles are made of fabrics like Oeko-Tex certified merino wool, cotton, rayon and silk. Colours range from light, frosty pastels that have been inspired by ice, snow and glaciers to bright red and pink shades. The characteristic, practical SUKA button can be found at each design. All SUKA scarves are made in Vietnam by native sewers under fair manufacturing conditions. Mainly natural materials are used. These facts make the purchase as well as the wearing of the scarves a beautiful, pleasent experience.

With MYKITA MYLON the Berlin based company has been creating glasses since autumn 2011 that are both sportswear and accessories at the same time. The flexible yet solid material Mylon as well as their light weight make the glasses the perfect companion for every day. The new collection also comes in a sporty yet futuristic and sophisticated way. With its big round silhouette the model ORION cheers hippie hearts and puts another excentric emphasis with its rainbow-shaped bridge. The corrective spectacles IO come with defined corners and edges, resulting in a dramatic cateye shape. Whereas ATLAS redefines the classical pilot specs through the fabric's endless design possibilities and reminds of a softly washed pebble from the beach.
