autumn picks

‘Tis the season for curling up, keeping warm and of course, updating the wardrobe. Here are some of our top picks for autumn.


1/ Kirsten Goss Ombre Diamond collection – for the April children, and the rest of us too, KG’s new collection is quirky and playful with white, cognac and black diamonds.

2/ Billabong’s Midnight Marrakesh collection will be in stores from May, and it features exactly what you’d imagine from its name – long dresses, wide pants, boho layers, chunky knits and a touch of military. Also check out Swindle to purchase Billabong and other labels such as Element and Kustom, along with surf, skate and mountain biking accessories.

3 & 4/ Forever New – currently in all stores (and select Edgars stores) is the Dream Catcher collection. Think floral maxi dresses, suede mini skirts, camel coats, 70s-inspired jewellery and ankle boots.

5/ Revlon – we are enjoying trying out the five new mascara and brush combinations that Revlon released earlier this year. The Dramatic Definition mascara is a goodie, and this Photoready Foundation Powder works like a charm too! Buy online at Red Square.

6/ Simply Aloe – the Aloe & Honey face mask is perfect for this time of year as the cooler weather can cause dryness. Proudly South African, we love the fact that this all-natural mask soothes, repairs and gives skin a good detox. You’ll find it at leading pharmacies and health shops.

7/ Converse – three cheers for the new All Star II Neon range available in teal, green gecko, volt green and red. In stores now!

8/ Jane Sews – locally made, beautifully designed, simply perfect… we love everything Jane Sews. These boots are high up on the autumn wish list.

9/ Hertex – their luxe home collection features the softest, most beautiful throws and blankets.

andy warhol meets converse

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of stepping out to view the Converse All Star Andy Warhol collection – inspired by the pop art legend himself. Tuesday evenings for me usually involve curling up on the sofa and watching reruns of Project Runway, but this particular night I took my darling friend Adelaide off to Sportscene at Canal Walk for some visual inspiration.

We wandered through the store along a corridor of enormous blown-up and vibrantly coloured prints of the artist to where, nestled at the back, was a display of the new Chucks themselves. Four unique pairs of kicks in Warhol’s classic Campbell’s Soup print occupied everyone’s attention as the onlookers all held thumbs to be a winner of the treasure hunt so they could sneak home with a prized pair.

I’m the proud owner of two very well worn pairs of All Stars which have evolved into my standard uniform and everyday wear. With only 120 pairs in South Africa, I’m hoping I can get my hands on a pair of these limited edition beauties!

The collection is now available exclusively through selected Sportscene stores with prices ranging from R979.95 to R1049.95.
