A “love local, buy local” movement is sweeping the country. Multitudes of South Africans are starting to support local industry, and choosing to purchase homegrown, over imported products. But sometimes these products are hard to find, and it has become one of Equilibrio’s missions to find and talk about quality local talent as much as possible.
GUILLOTINE BY LISA JAFFE
We became fans of Guillotine earlier this year after a scout of 44 Stanley for local, quality fashion. Lisa Jaffe’s label has been around for a while and after purchasing and living in her garments, we simply had to meet the visionary behind this brand with its sharp tailoring and impeccable draping.
It’s funny how many ideas (at least for us) develop over a glass of wine. We met Lisa one afternoon not too long ago, and had a walk through her fabulous new Summer Collection. And as the afternoon progressed, we decided to grab a drink at one of the great restaurants in the 44 Stanley precinct. It was there where we decided to do a fun project together. Phase one of the project is a fantastic promotion of her striking Summer Collection.
The promo will be launched on Friday 3 November and runs until Sunday 12 November 2017. It involves a guaranteed mystery discount of between 5% and 100% when you shop the Summer Collection at Guillotine’s flagship store at 44 Stanley, Johannesburg. *
A BRAND FOR ALL WOMEN
As soon as you slip Lisa’s garments on, you feel special and sophisticated. To me, she is the Diane von Furstenberg of SA. She chooses fabrics that feel luxurious, and look impeccable. Her wrap dresses fit perfectly whether you’re curvy or skinny, short or tall, and her tops drape in just the right places to flatter your waist and tummy. This is a brand for all women.
HAVE A PEEK
Here are some pictures of me in Guillotine, styled by Lisa and photographed by the other half of the Equilibrio team, Jill.
Be sure to get your hands on some Guillotine garments – over the next few days your purchase could be completely free!
