PopIn-to this beautiful collaboration!

THE STORY OF THE POP IN SHOP WITH VOICES CLUB AND JO CARLIN

So I was guttered to have missed this incredible collaboration between these two powerhouses, but here’s what this new creative & beautiful space in Cape Town is all about!

VOICES Female Business Club, a professional networking club, has joined in collaboration with Jo Carlin in Cape Town to launch a unique and beautiful collaboration space in the heart of De Waterkant.

This striking 200+ sqm gorgeous design space has been the home for Jo Carlin design for over 5 years and is well known as the only stop for stunning contemporary furniture which can be tailor made to particular customer requirements as well as the quirky Jo Carlin character female fashion

Shelley Humphreys, the founder of VOICES last year May was searching for a new creative space for the club members to utilize and work and which “evokes a creative energy and inspiration for new ideas and motivation which is often sorely lacking in many co-working spaces currently offered”

The new collaboration working space offers a comfortable and beautiful lounge environment, with Jo Carlin’s striking furniture designs and art pieces on the walls creating a warm, comfortable environment with high ceilings exuding space to think, breathe and create.

Jo comments “The idea of collaborating with VOICES was very attractive as I view myself as a creative female and enjoy being in the company of others with a similar energy and outlook. This collaboration will bring new energy and creativity into the space and I’m very excited to see what will happen”

The PopInShop was an idea born from both Carlin and Humphreys who believed that other high end designers could benefit and add to the energy and creativity in the space.

They created the concept and are joined for the launch by another 4 international designers who will offer their products to the space, including:

Mani Bains – an award winning Denim Designer originally from the UK with over 15 yrs experience being the lead designer for Levi’s, EVISU, Wrangler and Tommy Hilfiger and now for the past 2 years created a high end male and female denim collection, namely DIVA jeans and Kings of Denim.

Marlena Groengard Danish Designer and stylist whom have lived and worked in Copenhagen, Paris, Milan and New York offers MARA – beautifully designed jewellery, some with precious stones, and ostrich leather handbags.

Italian born Andrea Cisari will be presenting his iconic sunglass brand Ross & Brown an Italian eyewear brand established in 2013 with headquarters in London. Today, Ross & Brown products are sold in the most exclusive boutiques and finest optical stores all around the world.

British born Stuart Bishop will showcase his timepieces collection TRIDENT which are functional and minimalist in form, high regard for the principles of contemporary design and all with affordable prices.

 

POP2

 

Carlin and Humphreys are keen to keep the PopInShop story and shopping experience alive by including other designers into the space throughout the year, “we want to keep the customers engaged and coming back to see what’s new” comments Humphreys “we want to create an experience of inspirational purchasing with value and products not easily available at other retail outlets”.

The PopInShop is open for business Monday to Friday 9am-5pm and Saturdays 10am-1pm. Pop In and see us and join the collaboration.

So my weekend plans involve surrounding myself with beautiful pieces whilst taking a tour of this amazing space – keen to join me?

Until next time remember, Boss Chics don’t Compete…they Collaborate!

FREE FALL’IN AW16

Zando’s exclusive brand offering gets you autumn ready!
This season Zando invites you to celebrate your fashion individuality – with a pinch of off-the-runway panache! Autumn Winter 16’s sheer fashion variation has a little something for everyone, leaving nothing to be desired.

Clean Cut Perfection…
“Transparency was the hard-hitting inspiration for Free Fall’in this AW16. I wanted the aesthetic to be clean and simple but not ‘clinical’, allowing the autumnal colours to pop against the white background. We used supporting props that screamed urban chic with a modern flare.” Zeane Singer – Zando Fashion Editor

Warm berry tones pop against a playful mix of white frames, block platforms and futuristic loungers. The clean cut lines depict a baron portrait, themed to allow apparel to take focal point. The collection perfectly pairs with a pixie boot, pointed heel or brogue flatforms.

Fall Enthused…

Taking inspiration from global street style and the compelling runways of Paris, London and New York, the Zando AW16 Utopia Collection explores a fierce yet classic approach to seasonal transition. With a strong emphasis on spiced hues and faux fur with a seasonal velvet touch – textures run dense and layered.

“There is strong international influence for AW16 with a number of trends which one can easily relate to. From graphic black and white, sizzling punk, folksy tribe, military and an eighties comeback, Free Fall’in on Zando holds the key to style variety and perfect personality match.” Amanda Lepar – Senior Buyer, Zando Women’s Apparel

With a strong emphasis on brand offering expansion, AW16 was built to not only highlight a stark colourway, but looked to incorporate a rich mosaic of florals and geometric pattern in order to amplify styling capability.

From the tasselled ankle or pixie boot to a basic and most delicate court heel, lace up brogue, or pistol boot, Free Fall’in ensures something for every kind of gal out on the town or hitting the office glam from head to toe.

And Who Are You?

Zando Fashion Editor, Zeane Singer breaks down the Fall Collection into 3 prominent categories:

Borrowed from the Boys

This look is strongly inspired by international street culture. We like to think of it as hipster meets fashionista with a tomboy finish. Create the look with ripped boyfriend jeans, cleated side buckle boots, a soft white blouse topped with a smokey eye and soft nude lip.

  


Dark Romance

This luxurious look speaks for itself, a chic silhouette with a sultry twist. Ideal for career chasers with a full social calendar. Think lace detailed dress finished with a black leather jacket, velvet tie up heels and a burgundy wrap blouse. Add a vibrant masala lip for that added pop.

  


Folksy

Folksy has a fierce 1970’s influence with a slightly softer tone for that ultimate transitional changeover. This girl has a youthful spirit and playful bohemian charm. Pair your curvy fit basic skinny with a suede waterfall jacket and fringe bag. Warning! Don’t leave the house without your neckerchief or round sunnies.
