MM-LOGOTYPE-FINALHave you visited Mat & May yet? I know Mat & May from their stand alone shop in Canal Walk and really love the brand that this store has create for itself, if the brands they boast are not enough for you to handle then take on the design of their stores, (and now pop up shop) with key trends luckily now for those who don’t frequent Canal Walk too often there is a trendy little kiosk opened at Canal Walk featuring a selection of their products. The brand is part of the Foschini Group… yay for credit! 😉

Arriving at events can be stressful, especially if you are not 100% clued up on where you are going, I tend to find myself frequenting Canal Walk more often than Cavendish. Luckily, the kiosk is very hard to miss. The lighting alone of this impressive pop up shop will be sure to draw the attention of all fashion loving individuals like moths to a flame. We were treated to champagne and canapes while being given a foresight of seasonal trends to come from Renee New who is Mat & May’s merchandise executive who has a clear passion for fashion. Renee’s insight she shared with us was that we are to look out for Aztec inspired and atlas inspired prints as it appears we have all been bitten by the travel bug and are channelling the Mayans with warm tones and geometrical patterns finished off with a hint of gold.

With Cavendish Square boasting both a positioning and clientele that is fashion forward, it is certainly in a great position for such a trendy brand. Featuring both internation designs of sunglasses from Michael Kors to Ray Ban to Armani its hard to stay away from their displays.

Guest Contribution : 5 Great Sunglasses brands

What makes a sunglasses brand great? First of all, it’s the quality of their products. This includes the materials used and the craftsmanship. Then, there’s design, which to some is even more important than quality. Last, but not least, it’s all about business. Taking the right decision at the right time means a successful label. Below are five famous sunglasses models, all created by brands who knew when it was time to enter the field, and how to do it. Click here for amazing brands that have defined what sunglasses are.

5 GREAT SUNGLASS BRANDS

1. Ray Ban Wayfarer. The brand was founded in 1937 with the purpose of making goggles for pilots. They branched out into eyewear for the masses, and to great success. The Wayfarers are one of the most popular sunglasses models of our times, although they’ve been previously adored in the 50s and 80s. Click here for more Ray Ban models on GlassesOnWeb.com.

2. Prada 27 NS. What began as a leathergoods shop in 1913’s Italy evolved slowly, but steadily. They launched a ready-to-wear line for the first time in 1989, and one year later they started designing eyewear. The past few years have been huge for Prada sunglasses, most of their collections immediately becoming popular with the fashion crowd.

3. Persol 0649. Similar to Ray Ban, the brand started early on (1917) to provide eyewear for a specific demographics (tram drivers). Their most famous model was popularized by Steve McQueen in the 60s, and it was revived in the past few years by both male and female celebrities.

4. Tom Ford Nikita. The designer launched his namesake brand in 2006, complete with menswear, beauty, eyewear and accessories. Already experienced from Gucci and YSL, Tom Ford knew what he wanted. Just a few years later, his sunglasses are worn by virtually any famous face and are coveted worldwide.

5. Miu Miu 10 NS. The sister brand of Prada, Miu Miu was founded in 1993. The brand soon launched an eyewear line, which became successful in no time. Along with their pentagonal frames, these are the most popular of recent seasons, especially in their glitter version.

Weekend Trend Crush: Cateye Sunnies

Hey Pouters…

Did y’all miss me like I missed you???

You know how it is with month end and the end of the year creeping up on us so suddenly! I know, I know – sh*tty excuse Marinda, you cow! – right?! Haha!

But I am back with another Weekend Crush and this time it’s the gorgeous Cateye Sunnies I’ve seen people around town have been sporting and I have to say that I love it!

Nothing like a pretty pair of sunnies to keep that pesky wrinkle-inducing thing called “The Sun” at bay – pffft!

(Just joking, I know the sun is filled with all that good stuff too! :))

But seriously folks, are you going to be seen this summer (YES in South Africa it is summer now) without a pair of foxy shades?

So get your “purr” on ladies and invest in at least one pair!Happy weekend my ladies and gents!
