Designers featured in our stores
An iconic italian label that we've been passionate about since the first collection was launched at FIORUCCI in Milan about 20 years ago! Patrizia Pepe is a master at interpreting the major trends brought to us by the big fashion houses and "IT" designers and making them accessible and wearable to the "mainstream" without losing out on making a statement.
Her quality is impeccable and we love the timelessness of her collections. I have several of her pieces in my closet that are 20 years old and still look "now"! She knows how to dress a real woman's body and I am always amazed at how beautiful her clothing looks on.
Patrizia Pepe has also brought out a younger and more affordable line called Only 4 which will be launching in Cape Town with the Spring/Summer 2011 collection and will be in store in January 2011!! So yes, generally we are on par with the European seasons, which means you get more wear out of your clothes!
He is a favorite of the Jolie-Pitt family!! His very niche collection is found at Bergdorf Goodman and Fred Seagal amongst a few other 'it' stores around the world. His jewelry is poetic and raw at the same time... beautifully crafted with great detail, it turns a white t-shirt into an outfit. His bags are always a hit and go with everything. I love that he really follows his own drum and does not look at what anyone else is doing in the fashion world... he has his signature and that is that. Most of his pieces are unisex and a fine balance of feminine and masculine.
Velvet is another iconic brand from the US by designers Graham and Spencer. We love their t-shirts and think they are best staples around! Great quality and great design! Each season they bring out their stapels in the new "it" colors along with a few new must haves... impossible to pass by!
