The interior of the new Okapi store in Johannesburg
Okapi, the African luxury accessories brands established by Richemont scion Hanneli Rupert in 2008, has unveiled a flagship in Johannesburg in the Trumpet Building in the new cultural district Keyes Art Mile, in the suburb of Rosebank.
Rupert admitted that the Okapi boutique was “about five years in the planning. Finding the right space in Johannesburg was difficult, but we have always been more aligned to the art scene than fashion, and when the plans started for the Keyes Art Mile, I knew it would be the right fit for us.”
