Yuvi Alpert, the designer behind the limited-edition men’s accessories line Men in Cities](/men/brands/men-in-cities) gets most of his inspiration from travel. His refined—but seriously road-ready—designs tell the tales (and fill the needs) that emerge from the trips he has taken, from heading to Boston on a train or exploring Cuba with his camera. We are pleased to present some choice shots from his travels.
“This is the airport en Route to Lamu from Nairobi. You don't see this in JFK. This was the beginning of a five-week trip I took to Africa. I started in Kenya, continued in South Africa, and ended the trip in Botswana.”
“Enjoying the views en route to Lamu Island, a beach town in Kenya. This was my last flight needed to arrive there, on a small 10-person passenger plane.”
“A fellow jewelry designer I met in Shela Village on Lamu Island.”
“Overlooking Cusco in Peru. Skater kids have a lot cooler outfits in Peru than they had while I was growing up in Los Angeles.”
“This picture was taken in Arambol, Goa, where a bunch of kids were climbing rocks by the ocean.”
“This is a Tibetan Monk I came across on a motorcycle trip near Pokhara, Nepal. They have no TV or Internet at the Temple where he lives but he still has love for Kobe. I’m a big Laker Fan so this was a great surprise for me.”
“This is in Kathmandu, Nepal, taken just seconds before my forehead turned red.”
“The African penguin in Simons Town, Capetown. Penguins in Africa—who would have thought?”
