Cape Town is at the top of a bucket lists for so many people as a next destination travel must. Lucky for those of us who live here, we get to call this magnificent place home. Over the last few years I have been travelling from Turkey and Europe to Cape Town, there is nothing better than flying into Cape Town and hearing the pilots voice on the intercom say “Welcome to Cape Town folks, on the right you have Table Mountain”.
Our SS18 Italian summer collection was inspired from Amalfi and all that comes with European summer. Nothing that makes us happier than seeing our turkish towels lined up on Cape Town beaches. Cape Town is a place we are proud to call home, a place where we will always come back to and love the community and creative energy the city and country has to offer. We pay a tribute and show so much gratitude to all of our customers and everyone who has supported our small two person business possible over the past 11 months.
We recently teamed up with @imageian / Ian Engelbrecht to shoot a beautifully curated campaign that shows the essence of South African summer culture and to celebrate endless summers.
We were priviledged to work with ; stylist Olga Kotova and hair and make up artist Amber Caplan. We shot with Kyla a lovely young lady from Boss models and worked with Summerheart swimwear which fit in perfectly with our Summah colours of soft pink, peach and the most zesty Aperol orange. The backdrop of the mountain range and the vast blue freezing ocean and the dust white sand made our collection even more beautiful. Our campaign was shot on Llandudno, Camps bay and at the Camps bay rock pools.
We suggest you pack a crochet beach bag, sunscreen and your Summah towel and head down to the beach before the flocks of eager happy tourists arrive.
