Yesterday morning I attended the long awaited launch of Banana Republic in Sandton City! The San Francisco brand is finally on our shores and at the reach of our finger tips! The launch was hosted by 4ElementsMedia and even though it was at 11 o’clock during the day, Joburgs fashionistas and celebrities all came out in their Sunday best to see the brand first hand!
To give us a taste about how the brands clothing looks on people, Banana Republic dressed six celebrities for the event in their best designs from the “True Outfitters” collection. Styled by bloggers Thithi Nteta and Neil Doveton it gave us a closer look of what Banana Republic has to offer and how the upcoming summer trends can be styled using items from the collection.

Actress Amalia Uys wore what Thithi calls a double trend for this summer- prints and cropped trousers. Paired with a simple black top, you can wear this look for day and night.

And actress Michaella Russell shimmered in her gold sweater and sexy white pants. I wouldn’t mind wearing any of these three outfits, and it just shows that even though most people would think of Banana Republic as having the basics for the wardrobe, it also has some very trendy and stand-out pieces.
On the gent’s side, Top Billing presenter Jonathan Boynton-Lee looked dashing in a knitted sweater and beige trousers. 
Actor Anthony Oseyemi blew the public away in a gorgeous off-white suit. 
And singer Nakhane Toure showed off the nautical trend in a navy jersey and white pants.
These events are always so much fun for me because I get to catch up with my favourite media people. Who doesn’t love to chat away while sipping on champagne and delicious food?It can get a little hectic at items but I always enjoy mingling with the crowd and chatting to friends.
