Last week I popped into the launch of Kluk CGDT’s new store in Cape Town.
Naturally, my most fashion-obsessed friendie, Clouds, was my date. She’s the only non-celeb I know who owns real Louboutins…
It was a Belvedere vodka sponsored affair so, as you can imagine, the bar was awash with cocktails… Remember that fab cranberry one I mentioned last week? I didn’t manage to spot it on the night, so I ended up drinking a yummy litchi and cinnamon one instead.
According to Malcolm (Kluk) and Christiaan (de Toit), they’ve been dying to have a spot of their own in Cape Town for ages, a proper flagship store that isn’t ‘wedged between a hair dresser and coffee shop’. The new spot’s nice and big and kinda like a cocoon of couture where you can escape and indulge in gorgeous, beautifully made clothing. They’ve also got seamstresses working in the back so if you needed anything altered, they can do that for you on site.
I also grilled them for a few summer style tips and they reckon a great way to colourblock is to keep your hues all in the same family. For example, team orange with red, fuchsia or yellow… or blue with purple or green…
We then got down to cruising the racks:
…and I was quite taken with this simple elegant blue dress:
When the fabulosity got too much for us, we nipped out for a sneaky smook with Fairlady’s fashion ed Chu Suwannapha.
Chu told Clouds and I about a fab new store in Canal Walk called Cotton On. (It’s an Ozzie brand that’s got lots of cute on-trend clothes for us ‘young folk’ at prices that won’t break the bank.) We also had a bit of a skinner about the fact that Durbs is getting a Zara before Cape Town… I mean, seriously?! Come on now…
After a bit of a smooze, the models, clad in Kluk CDGT’s new line, filed into the room and swanned about so as to show off their mooi rokkies.
This was also lovely:
All this went on while their recent showing at New York Fashion Week was screened up against a wall:
Thanks Vivid Luxury, you guys know how to throw a seriously fab partytjie.
