Located in Franschhoek (Cape Town’s answer to East Hampton, about an hour east of the city) is Huguenot Street, a major promenade often dotted with Benzes and BMWs that offers some of the Cape’s best locally inspired shopping. There, side by side, you’ll find Indian Summer ($ 50 Huguenot St.; 27-21/876-2992) and Peacock Blue (50 Huguenot St.; peacockblue.co.za). The former is a women’s boutique carrying locally made necklaces studded with sapphire, topaz and citrine (from $100); the latter is a menswear shop selling sturdy safari bags by South African supplier Melvill & Moon (from $150). At Karoo Classics (58 Huguenot St.), ostrich wallets (from $60) and crocodile belts (from $140) sourced from the nearby Karoo make stylish souvenirs. Up the street, Tallulah’s (21 Huguenot St.; 27-21/876-2819) attracts a loyal clientele with printed frocks by Mastik (pictured here; from $170), while all the leather goods at Tsonga (40 Huguenot St.; tsonga.com) are handstitched in South Africa—try a pair of the store’s signature shoes (from $50).
