It’s payday week here at Grazia H.Q! While we’re on deadline today (making sure you can #GoGetyourGrazia each and every Friday), we can’t pop into the shops, so we figured we’ll just do some online shopping and spoil ourselves with a little something special for spring.
Here’s what we’re LOVING from Spree:

Gone are the days where backpacks are limited solely for school, hiking or travelling. These days, backpacks are making a major fashion comeback and are more chic than ever!
Our super chic and always on trend photographer, Roxanne, is always on the move, from shooting on the streets to shooting models for the mag. Roxanne, has so much equipment to carry around as well as her own stuff-so instead of carrying lots of small bags, she’s decided to join the fashpack and grab a back pack for all her daily necessities. Her number one choice? Jan Sports, of course.
With fashion week almost done and dusted, we kept our eyes on the streets for some trend spotting and we were not disappointed-the backpacks for the fashpack came out to play.
The secret to wearing a backpack and still looking chic? Rocking it with confidence. Besides being super convenient, you can rock your backpack with any look! Opt for fun, quirky prints and colours to add some expression to your look.
We’re all about bagging staple items so it comes as no surprise, really, that we’re all kinds of obsessed with the JanSport backpack. What we love more is variety of vibrant colours, prints and patterns available-we love our colour and anything bold!
The bags are available at select Edgars stores; prices ranged from R399 to R899. For further stockist information please contact Shirnat Fashion International at (031) 301 2464 or Kholofelo at firstname.lastname@example.org

Kicking South African Fashion Week off to the perfect start, Gert-Johan Coetzee’s AW2016 collection left audiences spellbound at the Ferrari showroom in Bryanston last night.
Kicking South African Fashion Week off to the perfect start, Gert-Johan Coetzee’s A/W16 collection left audiences spellbound at the Ferrari showroom in Bryanston last night.
As we’ve seen over the years, the local designer has gone out of his way to link his magical creations to a good cause. In the past, Gert has created collections that highlight breast cancer awareness and HIV/AIDS – and this year he took it a step further.
Gert says that when he learnt that water will probably be the cause of the next world war, he knew he had to celebrate the precious commodity we all take for granted. “We’re experiencing the worst drought in 23 years; we must start paying attention,” he says.
“Water is the essence of life and we should treat it preciously,” Gert continues. “My new collection came from that: it’s a celebration of water, bubbling and flowing along a riverbed, reflecting light, cascading down waterfalls.” And Gert couldn’t have captured the heart of his theme more perfectly.
Teaming up with Ferrari (to celebrate the brand-new California T), Sony Mobile and Spree, Gert debuted 31 looks from his new collection, leaving fashion lovers gasping in awe.
From fluid draping, bursts of blue feathers and opulent Swarovski-encrusted gowns to figure-flattering ready-to-wear threads, this is one of Gert’s best collections yet!
“We worked really hard at this collection and you hope that people will like it,” says the designer. “It’s an honour to have a platform that allows me to talk about issues that concern me.”
Raising the bar for local fashion even higher, a handful of the items from Gert’s new range are available immediately thanks to #spreeshoptheramp. So if you want to get your paws on some of the show-stopping pieces, head to online boutique Spree.co.za.
“We love that anyone, no matter where they are in the country, has easy access to my new range, and can get the dress of their choice delivered to their doorstep by the weekend,” adds Gert. “This is the future of fashion, and is one of the reasons our fashion industry is so vibrant.”

Last night on Wall Street in New York, the Balmain x H&M collection made its global runway debut in front of a celebrity-packed audience and we were lucky enough to be invited and to sit front and centre!
Kylie Jenner, Diane Kruger, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexa Chung were among the guests to get an exclusive look at the glamourous, powerful and rich detailed collection designed by Olivier Rousteing. The collection will be available in around 250 stores worldwide, as well as online, starting November 5, 2015 including South Africa!
The night was as bold and powerful as Rousteing’s designs, bringing together fashion and music to celebrate the collection in a venue themed like a futuristic subway station. After an exclusive preview of the campaign music video starring Kendall Jenner dance crews hyped the crowd for a runway show featuring models such as Gigi and Bella Hadid, Jourdan Dunn, Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls.
After the fashion show Backstreet Boys surprised the crowd with an exclusive live performance hyping the 90´s vibe.
“Tonight is a dream come true for me. The energy and vibe is unbelievable, and to have the Backstreet Boys perform for Balmain x H&M is incredible. It is an honour for me to collaborate with H&M, and tonight’s launch is something that I will never forget,” says Olivier Rousteing, creative director of Balmain.
“The launch was a true reflection of the Balmain x H&M collection, full of energy, positivity and glamour. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we can’t wait to share this feeling with our customers around the world when the collection finally hits stores,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M.
The Balmain x H&M collection will be available at the H&M V&A Waterfront store on 5 November and at the H&M Sandton City store on 7 November.
This year has seen a rise in various new trends, from athlesuire wear to the union of bold print separates; fashion took on a ‘no-rules’ approach this year.
Thrown into the 2015 mix is the alluring new Moonflower -introduced to us by the desirable new collection at Forever New- a chic edit of city-ready styles for bright spring days and dreamy evenings.
Forever New’s MoonFlower collection sees watercolour florals, delicate pastels and intricate embellishments decorate dresses, co-ords and special pieces to see you through the event season where modern glamour meets timeless femininity.
You will fall in love with romantic looks for spring events, from floaty wrap dresses to satin full skirt dresses. A palette of whisper light pastels appear in watercolour brushstroke florals, while metallics and sateens create a new season mood in tones of apricot peach, rose gold and sky blue. Silk fabrics are floaty and breezy, creating feather like layers in strapless dresses and softly billowing skirts.
The Moonflower Collection will be available in all Forever New stores and select Edgars stores from 16 October 2015.
In case you missed it but we’re pretty positive you didn’t, MRP has partnered with style icon Poppy Delevingne in their latest summer campaign. Today’s outfit of the day comes straight from the collection, our digital ed wears the abstract print peasant dress and leather gladiator sandals from the The Oakridge collection.
Kylie Jenner, older sis Khloe, Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez are all fans of the latest trend in swimwear: the thigh brow, brought to you by the “frong”. A frong, in case you’re wondering, is a leotard or swimsuit cut so high it looks like a front-facing thong. And a thigh brow is the line at the top of your legs. Jane Fonda first rocked a frong back in the 80s, and Pam Anderson and the Baywatch brigade took up the baton in the 90s. Now it’s back. So make a splash in highcut cozzies and show off your curves with confidence!
Here are our fave must-have frongs to wear now:
Rip Curl at graziadaily.co.za, R799, floral
Mr Price, R130
City Goddess London at Zando.co.za. R 399, pink
