Adele and Catherine are the lovely ladies that own my favourite Home Boutique. It only took me a couple of years to work out that it wasn't one person named Adele Catherine! But regardless, I have had heart eyes for this mostly mono piece of heaven of a store since I laid my little eyes upon it.
Adele Catherine offers boutique retail space’s which bring together a tightly curated assortment of home décor, fashion and gifting products shared in a way that helps people express their own personal style. They only sell products they love, always try to source locally where possible and collaborate with makers to create products that are unique to Adele Catherine.
WHY WE LOVE THEM
For me, just walking into Adele Catherine is an experience. The store is always filled to the brim with interesting finds, local apparel, quirky pieces, beautiful homeware and luxury items that sometimes you just have to treat yourself or your home to.
It is the place I visit for a gift on the go. Cards, tissue paper, ceramic hearts and perfect paper packaging along with friendly staff make buying a treasure for a friend incredibly simple and beautiful.
The price range meets everyones budget with lower priced finds for a little spoil to items that are an absolute luxury (but so worth it!). Adele and Catherine have a clear taste and aesthetic which is something that is close to my heart. When people stay true to themselves it shines through in their creations - stores included. It reminds me that each item was chosen with love. This thoughtfulness is important and what sets boutiques and local businesses apart.
But don't take my word for it...go and find out for yourself at one of their amazing stores listed below!

ON MY WISHLIST
Tiloné Viljoen is a local fashion designer and all-around creative.
(In fact you can find him on our Local List!)
The Apfel shirt is part of his sought-after celebrity illustrations collection.
Tiloné has become a a good friend over the years of us working together, but even before we got know each other I was drawn to his amazing talent.
He is a unique, Durban artist that reminds me of how special our local creatives really are. If you don't own a TILONÉ original then baby you need to change that.
Tilone says "Apfel believes you only have one trip to this world and you've got to make the most of it. When drawing her I could hear her costume jewellery jingle."
