South Africa vs Argentina
On the 12th of May top polo players from South Africa hosted Argentina’s finest for a game of polo. The event boasted nothing short of high goal polo, speed, glamour and high fashion. We were treated to a mouth watering authentic Argentine cuisine, paired with a program of traditional Tango, Waltzes, Milongas and other forms of popular Latin American music and dance.
Guests did not disappoint as they showed up with the best outfits from their wardrobes – playing around with the ‘Argentine Chic’ theme.
South Africans never miss an opportunity to dress up and show off, and we love that. In that same spirit, we went on to test their knowledge on the game of Polo. We wanted to find out if our guests knew at least a fraction about the game, as they know of the styles, makes and designers they were strutting. The responses were pretty interesting.
Inanda High Goal Polo 101
Polo players get on a horse back and try to drive a hard small white ball into their opponent’s goal posts. Each team consists of four players. The game is usually divided into five periods called “Chukkers”. We asked the guests what they thought the term meant. Did anyone get it right? Watch!
After a disappointing start, the South African team managed to get their heads, and horses, back in the game. They came back very hard resulting coming out victorious over the visiting team, Argentina with a 5-7 final score.
“Having the opportunity of playing a High Goal match against a dynamic, passionate team such as the Argentines, and then still, coming out as the winners of the day made for an exceptional sporting polo weekend” said Tom De Bruin, the South Africa team Captain
Don Design A Teases New Collection Drop
Check out the new drip by MondayIIMonday
Don Design teases the first part of his new collection. NoMoozlie was spotted in the Big Apple rocking these new threads from Don. The latest collection features a reinterpretation of the Celine brand, overlaid on Tupac’s Face.
Don is no stranger to the counterfeit culture. Counterfeiting is a global fashion trend that has flooded the International fashion streets for some time now. We’ve seen brands like Balenciaga recreate the Bernie Sanders campaign logo. Moreover, designers like Virgil have risen to fame through their renditions and recreations of popular brands.
Don Design has taken the same approach to his clothing. However, he brings it back home. We’ve all seen the popular ‘Sandton’ and ‘Bryanston’ hoodies around town. Hence, we are excited to see what Don has in store for us this time. The Beam Group designer is gearing up for a pop-up launch for his latest collection.
It is quite interesting to see the take that Don has towards counterfeit fashion. There has been a lot of misunderstanding amongst the SA fashion connoisseurs. With many people accusing him of not being original. This is, however, not the case. We are certain that this collection will set the record straight. Although we have not seen much from it we are sure to see more from Don at the Pop-Up.
Stay tuned to @Don_Design to get more information on this latest drop and how to get your hands on it. We will be there to cover it all as it happens.
