MilQ and Honey

Founded by Kelly Davids, partnered with Chad Sonday, Milq and Honey is Cape Town’s one stop health shop. Set on the bustling long street it resonates goodness and health. Definitely stop by for smoothies and good vibes.

Maison Mara

One of my favourite shopping experiences in Cape Town. Owner and founder, Kelly Withey and her knowledgeable staff always takes me on a wonderful journey every time I’m in the store.
You can expect to shop labels like JW Anderson, Kenzo, Balenciaga, Proenza Schouler and Malin + Goetz.

Studio One Fitness Studio and Gallery Space

A secret training space tucked away in the heart of Cape Town, only those who know, go. Steering away from all of the strange lights and smoke machines many of Cape Town’s fitness instructors have incorporated into their aesthetic, fitness instructor Clint Sylvester prefers a more minimalist approach. Sylvester cares about more than mass building and weight loss. His approach encompasses overall wellness and sessions often include meditation. If you’re looking for a trainer who cares about your health and wellness and a space to call your own, sign up now before the herd catches on.

AKJP Collective

Before there were many, there was one. I used to source from this store when I was just starting out in my career many years ago. Owner, designer and founder Keith Henning has given many an artist a space to exhibit and sell their beautiful wares. His sharp eye continues to curate emerging talent alongside established artists effortlessly. His shop on 73 Kloof is a must see.
