Last week I attended the launch of Errol Arendz Du Sud’s new winter collection hosted by one of the brand’s designers and held at the Cape Quarter store. To kick things off guests were treated to Cruz vodka-infused dirty martinis while browsing the store.
There were a couple of seriously nice clothing pieces, especially gorgeous animal printed kaftans but snapping these on the rails didn’t do them any justice. Thus, the majority of my piccies are of what Du Sud does best – shoes, shoes, shoes!
I also really liked these two bags…

Upon leaving, I got my very own koek (yes please!) and got to pick between double chocolate and red velvet. Obviously I went for the latter ‘cos red velvet is like the only cake where the kilojoules totally don’t count.
Dankie dankie to Katie Coetzee and Brigitte Willers from Panache Communication who put the bash together, I had a lovely time. To view more of Du Sud’s winter collection pop into the store and keep an eye on Zando. Currently the new items aren’t up yet but I’m told they’re going live soon.
