One of South Africa’s premier retail destination recently welcomed the arrival of five world-class retailers, each adding a distinct flair to the Sandton City brand

Sandton City“We are excited to welcome Dumond, Inglot, Carlo Pignatelli, Miguel Vieira and Kurt Geiger to our retail family,” says Sharon Swain, Centre Manager at Sandton City. “Each of these retailers boasts a unique and premium offering and their arrival brings the best of international trends to our local market.”

Renowned globally for his wedding suits and dresses, Italian clothing designer extraordinaire Carlo Pignatelli offers timeless garments made from top quality fabrics.  He is the proud designer of the official suits for the Italian National Football Team and has dressed the likes of Craig David, Sharon Stone, Christian Vieri, Sergio Ramos and most recently Didier Drogba for his wedding in Monte Carlo. 

The Sandton City store features a broad collection of sophisticated pieces including wedding dresses, evening dresses, wedding suits, classic formal suits, casual everyday wear as well as shoes and accessories for men and women. The exquisite store design and window displays elegantly highlight the offerings available and the efficient staff are trained to offer customised and personalised service. 

Embracing the culture and beauty that is Brazil, the Latin American nation’s leading footwear brand Dumond has opened its most recent store at Sandton City, expanding on its international footprint which includes a brand presence in over 50 countries such as Egypt, Denmark and Spain.

Drawing inspiration from the exotic rainforests and the beautiful people of Brazil, this high-end brand offers a diverse mix of products such as handbags and leather accessories that are recognized for their unique styles and designs. The stylish footwear and accessories are beautifully designed, with each piece featuring precise attention to detail and superior craftsmanship. 

Polish make-up powerhouse Inglot recently opened at Sandton City to much fanfare.  The Inglot store features an impressive variety of products in a wide colour array and specially trained make-up artists are available to assist shoppers in creating their own personalized palettes perfect for any occasion. 

The company – which currently has a presence in over 240 retail locations worldwide - was established over 25 years ago by Wojtek Inglot, a young chemist working at that time in R&D department in pharmaceutical company. His principal objective was to produce high quality products at reasonable prices, using only the best possible ingredients and raw materials from the most reputable suppliers. The brand now offers revolutionary products such as the unique Freedom System which allows customers to experiment with countless shades and colour combinations of different face products, giving them the opportunity to create customized colour palettes. Inglot also recently launched the world’s first ever Breathable Nail Enamel which is available in their store.

Men’s fashion is also set to receive a fresh boost with the arrival of two stores at Sandton City focused exclusively on the needs of the stylish metrosexual male.  

From the catwalks of countless European Fashion Weeks to the streets of Joburg’s northern suburbs, Miguel Vieira offers cutting-edge and trendy men’s attire inspired by the latest Latin fashion influences.  The acclaimed Portuguese designer has built an international status in the global fashion arena and the presence of this brand in South Africa is set to make a considerable impact on local trending styles and seasonal highlights.     

Inspired by the cosmopolitan metropolis that is New York, Kurt Geiger now brings the fashion and flair of The Big Apple to Sandton City.   With more than a hint of continental sophistication, the exclusively male offering includes apparel, accessories and fragrances to complement the brand’s stylish footwear selection.   Kurt Geiger continues to retain it’s positioning at the forefront of luxury footwear and accessory retailing and the stand-alone store situated next to Spitz is set to cater for the specific needs of the sophisticated man.

“We continuously strive to bring shoppers an offering and shopping component that fuses the crème de la crème of local and international retail leaders,” says Swain.  “Sandton City’s location adjacent to the Sandton Gautrain station also means that our diverse offering is easily available to shoppers from as far afield as Pretoria who are now a mere 20 minutes away via the convenient Gautrain from our centre.” 

A number of firm favourites at Sandton City have recently undertaken exciting store refurbishments.  The Bread Basket, Billabong, Nicci, Cameraland, Hydraulics, Marion & Lindie and Chefs n Icers have all recently unveiled trendy and stylish new store designs and interiors. 

“Sandton City is home to over 300 of the most desirable international and local brands, from fashion and décor to beauty and electronics,” concludes Swain.  “The arrival of these leading international retail icons bears testament to the shopping centre’s standing as Africa’s shopping gem with a continuous pulse on international trends and forecasts.”
