Hello Joburgers, we have just discovered the very awesome new Polish Nail Spa at 44…
Perfectly timed to bring a plethora of artisanal gifting ideas to shoppers ahead of Christmas, Hyde Park Corner is delighted to welcome VYx44, a collaborative store conceptualised to bring the artisans, makers and designers from arty 44 Stanley and Victoria Yards to the north.
READ MORE ON SHOPPING HERE.
44 Stanley and more recently Victoria Yards have re-invented urban spaces in Johannesburg and brought together local makers and artisans. Although distinctly different, both properties focus on sustainable practices and a return to artisanal craft and making with an increased emphasis on social development. This November, Hyde Park Corner brings these artisans, makers and designers to you.
Opening on 1 November in the month of Hyde Park Corner’s 50th birthday celebrations, YVx44 will be a place to discover fashion and accessories, furniture and décor, craft and design and coffee from Africa’s first Certified Fairtrade, organic coffee roaster.
Housed in a trendy warehouse-like space in a prime location at Hyde Park Corner, YVx44 is a perfect addition to the Hyde Park Corner’s mix of elegant and upmarket stores, restaurants, medical practitioners, aesthetics, movies and experiences.
