As the summer season unfolds in South Africa, immerse yourself in the spirit of optimism and generosity with a visit to Veuve Clicquot‘s exclusive ICONS pop-up boutique at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. Running until December 23, this limited-time experience offers the ideal opportunity to find the perfect gift for champagne enthusiasts. If you’re in Cape Town, this is a must-do summer activity.
The ICONS Collection, a celebration of sun-drenched days and festive merriment, comprises four exquisite and iconic design pieces. Nestled within Africa’s first Veuve Clicquot ICONS pop-up boutique, located at the V&A Waterfront, this retail space radiates with solaire style, embodying the House’s reputation for pioneering design and innovation.
Elevate your gifting experience by taking advantage of the personalisation service, which adds a bespoke touch to select ICONS, making your present truly unique. The collection embodies Veuve Clicquot’s ‘solaire culture,’ rooted in the legacy of Madame Clicquot, who revolutionised the world of champagne with her groundbreaking innovations in the early 19th century.
Here are some standout pieces from the ICONS Collection:
1. Clicquot Arrow
Embrace the limited-edition ‘Follow your sun’ Clicquot Arrow, adorned in vibrant colours.
