Love Warrior is here to bring sexy back to the mother city. Sleek, simple and sneakily tucked between a strip of shops on Kloof Street. This stylish stop will make you say things you’ve never said before, like “on fleek” and “that’s so dapper”. What does dapper mean, you ask? It means smart, spruce, trim, debonair, dashing, groomed – everything that Warrior Love represents.
“Fearless” is wallpapered in bold letters on the facing wall as you enter from the rushing sidewalk. It makes a statement and when you’re clad in one of their house brands – Beleave, Major John or SPCC – you will make a statement too. The hottest items (read: fast-moving and “hot” as in “you’ll definitely be noticed for your impeccable taste”). Love Warrior, although positioned as a men’s outfitters establishment, has something for everyone.
One of the most striking items available in-store and online is the Love Warrior bowtie collection, particularly the Mo selection – handcrafted wooden masterpieces that some call “accessories” but we call “art”. If you buy one of these Mo bowties in November, 15% of the proceeds will go to the Movember Foundation South Africa. Be stylish and support a cause.
While the expression stands, there is enough space to swing a cat in this minimalist store (though we wouldn’t suggest it). You can browse with plenty room to strut your stuff in front of the full-length mirror – and you’ll want to when you’re wearing a Love Warrior item. Tourists are also known to frequent this fashion haven, asking often for Beleave – boasting an African flair that will set them apart when they return to their home country.
Cape Town is known for its trend-setting, boundary-pushing fashion but sometimes it’s the classics that keep customers coming back. Revamp your wardrobe with a well-made button shirt, a figure-hugging pair of jeans, the kind of sneakers that even your mother-in-law would ask about and accessories that won’t go out of season anytime soon.
