02 Jul David Tlale Branches out into accesories
RED IS ALL THE RAGE
Following the announcement of his partnership with Vodacom Red, iconic South African fashion designer, David Tlale, will release a limited edition RED by David Tlale clutch bag this month, in celebration of the Vodacom Durban July, the country’s most stylish horseracing event.
Inspired by the RED by David Tlale collection that the designer has created and will reveal at this year’s Vodacom Durban July, the black & red clutch is limited to only 1000 bags. Each is personally marked (eg. 1/1000), and will be gifted to qualifying new Vodacom Red customers throughout June and July 2018.
“Striking out into accessories has been an exciting new development for me and my vision is to make the individual feel and look sexier carrying this one-of-a-kind clutch bag,” says Tlale, adding that he went for a minimalist design, with an emphasis on the bag’s fabric for effect.
Made in South Africa, with all materials sourced locally, each RED by David Tlale bag comes in textured black Nappa leather with red trimming and a metal zipper, while the interior is beautifully lined with red canvas. The bag will become even more exquisite with time as the leather ages and captures each wearer’s lifestyle and persona, says Tlale.
Adds Michelle Van Eyden, head of Vodacom sponsorships: “As a limited edition accessory, the clutch bag will be a timeless piece for Vodacom Red customers. We’re excited to be part of the evolution of David’s style and creativity and the bag adds panache to the collection David has designed for the Vodacom Durban July.”
