Shoppers looking to spoil themselves can find Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, and Cartier, all under one roof. Even the window settings are awe-inspiring in their opulence and trendy approach to celebrating the very latest in fashion and style.

The Arque Champagne Crescent is perfectly perched amidst all of the sparkly allure of the Diamond Walk.

There are some exclusive bottles here that sell for tens of thousands of Rands, which are not only delicious, but make for one-of-a-kind gifts for your nearest and dearest. Arque also boasts a fine dining menu with dishes that perfectly complement the dry sparkle of these wines.
