Fun things to check out at Mat & May

There’s a new accessories store over in Canal Walk - you’ll find it on the upper level where Matrix used to be, just past Markham.

It’s called Mat & May and it’s part of the Foschini group.  They do mens & ladies accessories like sunglasses, watches, satchels, headphones as well as ipad/iphone/laptop covers and sleeves.

Price wise you’re generally looking […]

French menswear fashion brand, celio*, opens in Canal Walk

Let’s face it… when it comes to the world of fashion, women pretty much get all the shine…

It’s mainly because we’re the “big spenders”, the ones who take a passionate interest in changing fashion trends, and generally the ones who care more about having a well planned overall look.

But that’s all changing…

Men are having […]

G-Star Raw launches a new store in Canal Walk

Last Thu eve I joined the boyfriend at the launch of Cape Town’s 2nd G-Star Raw store which has opened its doors in Canal Walk.

Steve Madden opens in Canal Walk – shoe lovers (guys & girls) check this out

Last night I attended the opening of the first Steve Madden store in Cape Town which has found its home in Canal Walk.

You’ll find it upstairs, close to the food court.  I think there used to be a San Marina shoe store there before.  Anyhoo, Mr Madden is considered one of the most successful […]

Cool things at Typo

My friend Leigh gave me a tip-off about a new decor & gifting store in Canal Walk.  She was like “you are going to absolutely lose your brain, it’s that awesome”…

Check out Lovisa for some cool accessories

Australian jewellery & hair accessories brand Lovisa has opened a store in Canal Walk (lower lever, shop 144A).

A while back I was on a mission to find some bronze or dirty gold toned accessories.  I first stopped off at Accessorize, then Sass Diva – my two “go to” stores when it comes to accessorising. […]

OK, so I totally cracked…

Yesterday I told you about the Rock the Runway fashion show I attended at Canal Walk last weekend.  BUT… what I didn’t tell you is what I did afterwards…
