In the last two years we have seen many international brands open doors in South Africa. It’s something I thought would never happen and it has changed shopping for the better!
One store I visited a couple of years ago when I was in Europe was H&M and I really wished it would open in South Africa! They cater for both male and female and have a huge accessories department!
Well guess what, ladies, the wait is over. H&M will grace us with their presence in the 4th quarter of 2015.
For now there are two flagship stores:
Cape Town: V&A Waterfront October 2015
Johannesburg: Sandton November 2015
On another note, H&M is well known for collaboration with some of the most well know luxury brands by coming out with limited edition lines which cater to a more affordable range! The latest being their collaboration with Balmain – my heart literally beats like crazy as I type this!
Here are a few other recent collaborations:
• Isabel Marant
• Alexander Wang
Are you ladies and gents excited as I am for H&M South Africa?
