I love The Lot!
As a lot of you know, The Lot is sort of my life. It’s the best new clothing branch since ever. The Lot opened a branch in Stellenbosch recently, and I got the chance to talk to the lovely owner.Forever Fashion: Your store is one of the biggest and most liked shops in Cape Town! How would you describe your clothing style?
The Lot: Fresh and unique with a rock n roll edge. We constantly search for cool new designers and brands so we can stock those special pieces you won’t find anywhere else. THE LOT is a contemporary SA fashion retailer that scours the globe to bring you the coolest fresh & vintage fashion, accessories & lifestyle products ♥
FF: Where do you get all your wonderful garments from? Local or international?
TL: We stock both local and international brands as well as a highly curated selection of up-and-coming designers.
FF: Are there any specific trends that you would recommend for this summer?
TL: Denim shorts are our must have item of the season – especially those with studs, spikes and Aztec patches and pockets. Pair with a 90s inspired crop top or drop armhole tank & retro round shades.
FF: When did the creation of this magnificent place start? Was it always a passion of yours to open a fashion store?
TL: We opened our first store in the extremely popular fashion hub of Kloof St, Gardens in 2008 after years of planning and product sourcing. Since then we have opened in Claremont (just outside Cavendish Square), Canal Walk and now Stellenbosch.
FF: If you could compare your shop to a celeb, who would it be and why?
TL: Rita Ora’s – we love her bold & quirky style and the way she mixes casual and glam pieces.
FF: And lastly, why ‘The Lot’?
TL: We try to offer our amazing customers everything they could want – the lot!
