Do girls/women still want to be/look/feel like princesses? Or has the princess phenomenon been relegated to fairy tales for good?
I don’t know about you but I love a chance to dress up and put on a pair of high heels even though I know my feet are going to be in pain by the end of the evening. On Thursday 3 November I was thrilled to be able to dress up again in my Ikhiwane dress (bought from Woza Moya Botha’s Hill) and put on my sparkling earrings (Colette by Colette Hayman) and my strappy high heels (Madison) and attend the Arthur Kaplan cocktail function for Cartier.
The Arthur Kaplan luxury boutique at Gateway Theatre of Shopping has recently been redesigned and Cartier which is one of the worlds’s most esteemed and respected brands has found a home there for its Watchmaking Collections. Some of the pieces on show included the latest ‘Drive de Cartier’ and iconic ‘Ballon Bleu de Cartier’ that showcase Cartier’s exceptional watchmaking as a fusion of cutting-edge technology and characteristic elegance in their designs.
Arthur Kaplan’s newly redesigned boutique highlights how the brand continues to evolve and innovate, delivering in its promise to provide the highest level of personalized customer service and exquisite selection of luxury jewellery and premium Swiss watch brands.
The evening saw guests entertained by classical duo Allegro Strings, French style canapés and special Cartier branded champagne. Arthur Kaplan’s MD, Dean Divaris reinforced the brand’s commitment to build longstanding relationships with their clients and celebrate every aspect of their life and love’s journey, be it through their designer jewellery collections or finest Swiss watches.
It was an elegant and relaxed evening with wonderful people to chat to and gorgeous watches to ooh and ahh over. Arthur Kaplan’s staff is efficient and friendly and only too keen to show off the perfect Cartier watch to grace your wrist.
Arthur Kaplan traces its roots back to 1889 when the family business first started building a reputation for providing timeless jewellery to discerning clients. Arthur Norman Kaplan opened the first store in 1973, creating a culture of personal service and attention to detail that still defines the Arthur Kaplan brand to this day.
Today Arthur Kaplan is a luxury jewellery and watch retailer with 10 stores located in major shopping centres in South Africa. The brand is particularly well renowned for Swiss luxury watches, and is a trusted destination for diamond engagement rings.
