Last week I popped into Sunbird Bistro in Camps Bay for the official launch of a new clothing brand called fondle, the brainchild of Marc Buhrer who’s alias is Max Fondle.
The folks at fondle say their target market are ‘guys and dolls who aren’t concerned with public perception’. Its sexy celeb ambassadors include the chicas in the piccie up above as well as Khuli Roberts, Lee Anne Roberts and Loui Fish.
Anyway, for various reasons, the ambassadors couldn’t make it to the party but Tracy and a few other models did a good job of showing off fondle’s zexy li’l dresses and vests:
Tracy says she’s excited to help expand the female side of the line with the introduction of swimwear, which she’s going to design herself, later on this year. As it is she used to have her own range of cocktail dresses that were exclusive to Cape Town boutique Big Blue.
Otherwise, I wasted no time getting stuck into some of the fondle items that were put out on display:
My beloved Karis Piss, however, was rather taken with this furry hat so artfully modelled by Cosmo calendar boy Dene Botha who’s also the international face for Ford’s new Ranger:
KP and I have often spotted Dene out and about on the party circuit but haven’t really had a proper chat so it was nice to get to know him better. As it turns out, he’s quite the sweetheart and even obliged to be, ahem, ‘fondled’ for the sake of our blogs:
By the way, I’d like to point out that I’m fully aware that K looks totally adorbsville in her fondle cap and that Dene brings new meaning to the words ‘ab fab’ but I’ve come off like the love child of a Long Street bergie and a flesh-eating piranha. Oh the things I do for
a kickass blog stats page my darling readers… Still, if we made it black and white, I reckon it could totally be a fondle ad:
Anyway, this was a super fun evening only slightly marred by my knocking over a big ass glass o’ vino, effectively murdering my BlackBerry.
When I opened the poor thing up, I could literally flick red wine off of the SIM card. Tres kak! On the upside, however, I took this as a sign from God to just get a frikken iPhone already and am absolutely loving it. Being able to browse several sites at once and view them properly totally makes up for its pernickity touch pad keyboard.
Anyway, getting back to fondle… if you want you check out more of their clothes, go take a peek at their website over here.
A big thanks to Clayton Morar who organised the bash, I’m now a big fan of ‘R&R'; Tipo Tinto rum and Raspberry Sparletta:
I also enjoyed that Scheckter’s Organic Energy drink I found in my goodie bag. (It’s only 450 kj and doesn’t contain any synthetic caffeine, only naturally stimulating ingredients. Taste-wise, it’s nice and refreshing; like a slightly fizzy strong pomegranate ice tea. Yum!)
Love, love (and a quick li’l fondle),
P.S. Just the other day, my darling Clouds inteviewed Tracy for her popular In the Wardrobe of… series on her fashion-focusedblog, And Lollips. Check it out over here.
