African luxury is a growing market on the continent and local designers are not letting the opportunity to delve into the space go to waste. Design duo, Adriaan Kuiters + Jody Paulsen, are a pair doing just that. They have recently opened their new concept store: AKJP Collective; a home housing a variety of well-articulated designer merchandise from various African designers.
Situated on the trendy slope of Kloof Street in Cape Town, the concept store houses brands such as Take Care, PICHULIK, House of Gozdawa, Agata Karolina’s Cape Town-based perfume house and of course, the design duo’s own Adriaan Kuiters + Jody Paulsen brand.

The store is minimalist – allowing the merchandise and product displays to steal the show. Apart form amazing clothing, expect to find on sale fantastic accessory pieces such as bags and shoes, art and a variety of international men’s fashion magazines, including titles such as VMan and Vogue Homme.
