Being the hipster that I am (not), I went to check out Toffie Pop thanks to some tickets from Bow Peep. And flip, there is a whole other Cape Town fashion scene where people are super creative, outlandishly arty, properly talented and sometimes a little strange. I only got a chance to have a look at the art exhibitions and the market but I was really impressed by what local Capetonians are doing in pursuit of a trend-setting art culture.
The quality products that I was most impressed by were:
These are the beautiful earrings I bought – one for me, one for a friend (now I just have to decide who gets which pair). Have a look at Leila’s shop: Bow Peep
Leila does a whole range of quirky-cool-pretty things including fridge magnets, buttons, brooches, alice bands, earrings and hairclips.
Man, these guys make cool stuff – I mean just check out their online shop for furniture, design and apparel – the bags at Toffie Pop were masculine and expertly crafted. I couldn’t think of a man in my life that was currently in need of a man bag – but they were so awesome I was tempted to buy one for myself!.
Such pretty jewellery and amazing attention to detail at Muchi Galoosh! I’ve been on the lookout for a pair of these poly-something-or-other earrings – they are handcrafted by Michelle, rose petal by rose petal. And today was my lucky day (I’m wearing them as I type now) – I mean look at them – they are just so pretty! Apparently, if you look at them closely, you can see Michelle’s fingerprints – I can’t vouch for this because they are in my ears but I’ll check and let you know.
Toffie Pop is on again tomorrow (Sunday 01/04) and is well worth checking out – especially if you need an education in Cape Town Fashion and all things Hipster or need to express your inner child (jumping on a jumping castle and eating free ice-cream).
