Hg2 : The Hedonist

Bree Street

The best design and art shops in Cape Town, as well as vintage clothing and DVD rentals: The Bell-Roberts Gallery (89) excellent gallery worth checking out for both art and photography; Cape Originals (97) stockists of locally-produced functional art pieces, like Avoova – a range of ostrich egg-shell designs (made by formerly disadvantaged community in Prince Albert) in which egg shells, discarded by ostrich farmers, are used to decorate anything from vases and mirrors to bowls and bangles. Very pretty; Miseal (103B) ‘create the object that you have always wanted to make and are passionate about making but wondered whether it would find an audience’ is how Michael Haerens and Ivano Gelio briefed local artists and designers; don’t miss their ongoing ‘exhibition’ of one-off or limited edition pieces;rnBlue Blood (104) if denim is your preferred uniform, you won’t leave this specialist denim shop empty handed; DVD Nouveau (166) by far the best DVD rental shop in the city, located next door to Boss Models in a converted home; four separate rooms, each showcasing a different theme/ genre, from foreign films (all the classics) and documentaries to just about every series ever made; Vintage Clothing (243) what used to be second hand is now bespoke vintage.
