South Africa’s (SA) David Tlale, a household fashion name in SA who showed this past Spring at New York Fashion Week, has officially launched the Luella David Tlale Shoe Collection. Launched yesterday, the Collection is a collaboration with popular British fashion brand Luella founded by Luella Bartley, British Vogue Editor turned designer.
Tlale’s shoe collection encompasses six styles ranging from crafted cage leather platforms to bejewelled satin peep-toes.
“The partnership with Luella came at a right time when I was looking for something that would complement the garments we design, explains David Tlale in a statement to the press. “Luella understands what the DT brand is about and, together, we came up with a daring collection that is sure going to turn heads.”
