A look at Errol Arendz Du Sud’s new winter collection

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.

My kinda show...
My kinda show…

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!

Pretty, right? Those tan and gold wedges are currently R1 190 on Zando. I didn’t get the prices of the others.

I also really liked these two bags…

The clutch (R699) has a tassel attached to it that’s out the shot as my poor friend Tracey’s desperately combing it to prevent me from having an OCD melt down. Once sorted it still didn’t look ‘neat’ enough and thus you get this shot and not the hive-inducing tassel shot. And you think YOU have problems.

After a bit of a schmingle with these mooi mense

…we got to sit down and take in a fashion show and was surprised by how many items didn’t jump out at me from the rails but looked absolutely killer on the models. (Alas, I don’t have any pics of my favourite things as I was sitting at an angle that made it difficult to snap a ‘girl from the front’ view but the event photographer did manage to grab a few ‘on the ramp’ shots.

Off ramp, I really liked these boys:

This dress struck me as being pretty Versace, which I like, and I loved the luxe, almost ‘shearling’ texture of the throw.

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.

Glad I came!
Glad I came!

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.

Love, love
