Our intrepid World Market buyers traveled to Cape Town, South Africa’s celebrated port city to explore inspiration for our new Cape Town Clothing Collection. They returned bearing the most captivating styles, patterns and textures!
Cape Town lies at the tip of Africa. A quick car ride south delivers you to the magical Cape of Good Hope, where animals like ostriches and penguins roam free. Travel northeast from Cape Town and you’re sure to glimpse storied creatures from impala to giraffes to elephants — as well as the richly cultural tribes who’ve long inhabited the landscape.
The Cape Town Clothing Collection
Our collection blends the chic metropolitan vibes of Cape Town with unique tribal traditions and a distinctive call of the wild. Here are a few of our favorite looks!
This Jacquard Jacket is THE eclectic statement maker of the season. We adore its tribal-inspired black and white pattern and fringe detail. Pair it with our blush Iryna Top and a roomy bag for easy on-the-go boho style with a touch of South African allure.
Walk on the Wild Side
This breezy Oryx Bahati Dress offers a bold new take on the booming animal prints trend. Keep a Serengeti-chic theme running with a textural sweater in earthy shades. As a finishing flourish, add a pop of bright hues with a dazzling headband or scarf. Stash your essentials for the day in a fun, vintage-style olive purse — and then hit the road to adventure!
Our Sage Green Fringe Sweater is a natural scene-stealer. Loaded with irresistible texture in a neutral goes-with-everything shade, this chic pullover culminates in an eye-catching curved hemline. Infuse African tribal flair into this ensemble with oversized plated fringed drop earrings, and opt for a simple layered necklace for subtle radiance.
Tribal Style is in the Bag
Inspired by age-old tribal Mud Cloth designs, this mesmerizing bag is one of our favorite finds. Mud cloth is historically handcrafted using heavy fabrics that are naturally dyed with mud in geometric dot-and-line patterns. Each design alludes to the folklore and customs of the individual tribe. This bag brings those incredible traditions to life in a truly dazzling way.
Touring the style scene in and around Cape Town, our World Market buyers fell in love with the light, flowy fabrics and bohemian dress styles they found, instilled with dashes of South African culture. This blush dress with swirls of embroidery is a brilliant, eclectic choice for sunny-day brunching and sightseeing.
Bold Black & Gold
Combined with our array of gold-toned accents, this lengthy, billowy dress in classic black with ivory embroidery creates a look that’s destined to impress. The unique motifs accentuating our affordable Cape Town Collection pieces offer twists on classic tribal designs that make them easy to wear anywhere.
