On Wednesday I attended the launch of Scotch & Soda’s AW 15 collection, and in the words of my dear colleague “It was so swanky!”

Our glasses were spilling over with champagne and G&Ts and vodka, we indulged our taste buds with some exquisite Dutch hors d’oeuvres served by handsome models in button-ups, all the while treating our eyes to some of the best AW 15 pieces I have seen thus far. I feel a very strong urge to whip out my credit card.

The store boasted some beautiful displays and the overall image of the range was one of subtle luxury and youthful innovation within the key trends for AW 15.
The range was brought to life by the pops of this year’s winter colours – blue-grey, golden-yellow, marsala, classic blue and olive green.
Scotch & Soda are keeping the looks luxe with embellishments like studs and beads, and with techniques like quilting and pin-tucking.

Overall, a wonderful event and an even better collection. So excited to go shopping this weekend! (Couldn’t resist the credit card urge :/)

Check out the official Scotch & Soda site here. Thank you so much to the PR company Styling Concepts for hosting this great launch, and of course to GLAMOUR Magazine for taking me with!

song, song of the south

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the launch of the talented, home-grown jewelry designer Henriette Botha‘s latest collection, “South”. Keeping true to her style Henriette has created a beautiful range of eclectic and striking pieces, with inspiration drawn from the Southern parts of different continents.

The event was hosted by Jenna McArthur PR and was beautiful as always. The most fabulous part of the evening was the chance to get a quick manicure by the amazing FoxBox mobile nail service! Just what I needed. When you’re as busy as I am you don’t have time to do your nails, so the opportunity to have someone else put some paint on was super exciting.

We left the event with beautiful manicures, the most exquisite mini cakes, as well as a personal gift from Henriette – a bracelet from the South collection.

Part of the GLAMOUR team appropriately dressed for our jungle-ly adventure.

Last Wednesday I was treated to one of the most magical events I’ve been to – the launch of Old Khaki and Poetry’s Winter 2015 collection. Jenna McArthur PR did an outstanding job transforming the Brundyn+ Gallery into a delightful and secluded woodland, from tree stumps and bushes all the way down to dry leaves and pine cones. Apart from the beautiful displays, we were gifted with a wonderful toy for all us Instagram lovers (ie: everyone) which instantly printed all posts we made using the special event tags! What a treat. Oh, and let’s not forget the food which included the best mini hamburgers I’ve had. 😀

The winter ranges were on display for us to see (and try on :P). Expect the usual excellent quality and tasteful feel from the Poetry range, which includes some lovely leather trims and beautiful knits. Old Khaki will be giving us tons of really great jackets as well as a large assortment of cool accessories and shoes.

Take a look at some pictures I snapped at the event as well as two sets I did quickly with some of my favourite pieces from the new ranges.
