“I decided to open my first boutique around the corner from where my friends and I live”
Born from a deep passion for all things fashion, inspired by Coco Chanel, MARI and ME’s mission is clear – to be personally involved, assisting women to find the right design for them. Mari sources the garments from all over the globe – exclusive, ready-to-wear lines that are comfortable and quite importantly, affordable. It is clothing that can be worn by real women who want to look good at all times.
Inspiration from commercial and overseas trends can be seen in the ranges, but every attempt is made to incorporate a distinct South African feel. Keen to take factors such as Cape Town’s unpredictable four-seasons-in-one-day temperatures into account, wardrobes are carefully selected and remain wearable. The classic desirable key items like the versatile little black dress, trench coat and serious high heels are handpicked to fit every occassion – be it friday cocktails at Camps Bay or a dazzling dinner at some secret spot in Town.
