#HeyjowTurns4: Behind-the-scenes of our Anniversary Collection Shoot
We turned things up a notch this year by exploring the wilder side of things for our 4th Anniversary Collection.
Inspired by South Africa's exotic landscape, the Savanna Collection boasts of bold pieces in brand-new elements that lend a new dimension to Heyjow’s bohemian aesthetic.

The exotic quality of our latest pieces reminded us of one “amazing” woman who exudes the same distinctive appeal.
Elements include cascading leather tassels, wildcat charms, and wooden horn pendants
Model, entrepreneur and interior designer Maggie Wilson-Consunji’s flair for playing up a neutral wardrobe palette with striking accessories made her the perfect muse for this special collection (she’s also our Style Story muse for June!).
Her home also became the perfect backdrop for our look book shoot, which has a tropical-meets-tribal look.

“I like calling my style tropical art deco,” Maggie shared. “I’m a fan of art deco but I also feel that true art deco is very heavy so I like to change it up by lightening the colors and softening the pieces with some tropical-looking pieces.”
A lot of the pieces in her home are from her travels around the globe, which are mixed with family heirloom pieces.

“I don’t like buying pieces out of just some random furniture store. I really enjoy pieces with stories. I have pieces from Italy, South Africa, Morocco, the Middle East, and Bali as well as locally made pieces from Zamboanga where my mother-in-law is from,” she described.
“When you are designing a space, it’s always nice to incorporate the old with the new. It makes things more interesting and fun to look at. I love old items because I feel that they have a lot of character. I have a few brass pieces in the den that are also family heirlooms from my husband’s side."
