OMG if the universe will allow a self-indulgant feeling of narcism… I dare say, it seems as though, since my glorious return to South Africa, amazing things have happened.
The headline is correct. ZARA the amazing Spanish high street retailer is coming to South Africa, this is according to Emma Jordan over at iFashion.co.za.
The glorious store is finally coming to “the motherland”. The location of the first flagship has yet to be announced, but some people are already speculating (and perhaps silently praying to the universal laws of fashion karma – if they exist) that it would be in Sandton. Merely a stone’s throw away from my house. I am using too much hyperbole. Centurion is a little more than a stone’s throw away from Sandton. I digress!
The first thought i conjured up was “the clothes”, after having been slightly dissappointed when shopping at Mango both in Havana, Cuba and in Sandton. Inditex spokesman, Raúl Estradera Vázquez, says that the store will carry a collection designed for the Southern Hemisphere that is in line with offerings in Australia, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Chile, etc. I immediately went onto the zara.com website to see what that would mean for little old me, and I could not see the Australia site, but however Colombia is another country in the Southern Hemisphere, and it seems to be completely unchanged from the Singapore one… Is this their chikanery?
No puedo imaginar una cosa mas mejor que esa! Que maravillosa!
Voy a dedicar mi dia a los ropas de ZARA.com (bet you wish you studied spanish like yon mia now huh?!)
