Sale! ADRIAAN KUITERS + JODY PAULSEN AW15

I now you don’t mind the interruption a few days before payday because who doesn’t love a sale?

One of my favourite local fashion houses, Adriaan Kuiters will be hosting a sale on Thursday 27 August 2015. Sadly, I won’t be there as it’s taking place at the Kloof Street studio in Cape Town. The sale starts at 18h00 and you will get this lauded collection for up to 75% less.

The Autumn/Winter collection is strongly reminiscent of art movements like Dadaism and constructivism with a heavy focus on outerwear for the guys and girls such as reversible raincoats, coats and bomber jackets as well as fitted, tailored dresses, shifts and pleated A-line skirts.

Here’s a little sneak-peek ahead of the sale.

Edcon set to launch Express in South Africa

Edgars is fast becoming the biggest fashion retailer with its inclusion of major fashion brands in their stores. First they brought us Topman, Diesel, Guess and Tom Tailor.  The latest and one which I am really excited about, is  U.S fashion apparel brand, Express.

For more than 30 years the Express brand has offered a distinct combination of fashion and quality for multiple lifestyle occasions at an attractive value addressing fashion needs across work, casual, jeanswear, wear to work and going-out occasions.

The brand is expected to launch as a store-in-store concept at select Edgars locations by the end of 2014 as well as a stand-alone Express Shop.

Here are some of my favourite items from the Express online store.

Converse launches CONS Project Joburg

A few years back, Converse SA started driving creative footwear and some of my favourite ranges include The Simpsons and street art-inspired designs.

This week, they announced the local leg of a globally successful creative drive, the CONS Project Joburg. This community projects was designed to inspire the next generation of creative spirits through music, art, style and skate.

The project seeks to unearth urban creativity within the community using the space as a creative hub for a series of talks, workshops and exhibitions; all aimed at inspiring young people, giving them opportunities to learn whilst fueling their creative passions.

The workshops will offer hands-on lessons for local youth ranging from 16 and above at no cost.

DJ Duo, Mary Jane, who will put together a Mixing Workshop and entertaining the crowds, feel inspired by the project. “Converse and more specifically CONS feel like a natural extension of who we are. They are about modern street culture and stand out for enabling creativity.”

 CONS Project Joburg is set to take place at the corner of Melle and Jorissen Street in Braamfontein from 29 May to 1 June 2014.
