Lebanese designer Reem Acra is loved by the likes of Taylor Swift and Jennifer Lopez. So there’s reason to be very proudly South African when this international powerhouse taps a local SA brand to collaborate on a collection. Three stylish cheers then for Coast & Koi, which has produced dreamy, exquisitely embellished slip-on shoes in wonderfully rich fabrics for the Reem Acra Autumn/Winter 2017 collection.
Caryn Wilensky, the Coast & Koi owner and designer, is known for her luxury finishes and beautiful blend of African and Oriental influences, and she is, herself, a longtime Reem Acra fan. “I always knew we shared the same taste, but there is no higher honour than being approached by one of your role models,” she says.
To order your own pair of handmade beauties from Coast & Koi, visit coastandkoi.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 021 434 7597. And be sure to follow the brand on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
