Media Release : Hyde Park Corner Launches Cortina Court

“Hyde Park Corner launched their new Cortina Court with a spectacular red carpet fashion party. A Jazz pianist and performance by the ShooWop girls set the tone. Stand alone new stores include Emporia Armani, Versace, Paul Smith,  Jigsaw London, Luisa Spagnoli , Longchamp and a new concept Nespresso store

Luminance launched the fabulous menswear collections where guests enjoyed sexy Bisquit cocktails. An  eclectic mix of top business people,models , well heeled bloggers  top SA faces in film , arts and fashion descended down the red carpet. Guests enjoyed Champagne, Rupert Wines and Martini Cocktails served from a very sexy bar, delicious and innovative food , the gold inspired cheese and dessert installation was an art piece in its self.”

It was quite a fab situation, the best part of the night was walking around Luminace and being seduced by designer bags. I even tried on an amazing outsized JIL SANDER jacket in a jewel tone green (see image).

Media Release: Puma & Solange Team Up On Second Footwear Collection

PUMA have officially released their second collection of footwear under the creative direction of Solange. Building off of the success of February’s Girls of Blaze collection launch, Solange has enlisted the original designers to re-interpret PUMA’s seasonal themes of “Wild Rebel” and “Natural Calm.”

This collaboration sees Singer, Songwriter, producer, model and influencer Solange teaming up with friends Gerlan Marcel of GERLAN JEANS; visual artist, musician, and photographer Hisham Bharoocha; and Darlene and Lizzy Okpo, design team for the women’s wear collection William Okpo, to create a unique PUMA interpretation for AW14.

Using two iconic styles for PUMA, the collection is centered around the classic PUMA Suede and the XT2; a much loved favourite from the Trinomic family. Each designer approached these silhouettes in their own way and brought in graphics, a mix of materials and colors or natural fabrics to create these soon to be favourites. 

The first drop within the collection, entitled Wild Wonders , features three styles and will be in-store from 28 November. The second drop goes by the name of Behind the Bazaar and will be in-store from 22 December; featuring two styles to get you ready for the holiday season.

PUMA x Solange will be available exclusively from PUMA SELECT stores in Bree Street, Cape Town and Braamfontein in Johannesburg.
