Announcing the arrival of Aldo Martins

Just in time for the upcoming autumn season, Colourbox is thrilled to announce the arrival of an exciting new range from groundbreaking fashion house, Aldo Martins.


Tracing its humble origins all the way back to Barcelona in the 1970s, Aldo Martins is a strikingly innovative knitwear brand that beautifully embodies the bohemian spirit of its birthplace in Catalonia.

Every item of clothing created by this boundary-pushing brand is an unmistakably vivid expression of the daring culture from which it originates. With each piece bursting in boldly kaleidoscopic prints and exhibiting unexpected one-of- a-kind designs, the truly unique clothes produced by the forward-thinking brand that is Aldo Martins, act as ideal complements to the audacious lifestyle of the modern fashion lover who is, above all else, authentically herself and unafraid to live her truth.

The newest collection launched by Aldo Martins, entitled Vent Del Nord (or North Wind in English) draws inspiration from an eclectic mix of sources; including the tribal patterning of Native American textiles and the distinct lines and shapes of military uniforms from days of old. By employing these powerful elements, the Vent Del Nord range has the exhilarating capacity to carry you breathlessly on a journey through the imagination, a voyage of discovery and a harking back to bygone eras.


Every feature within this new collection weaves a brave and almost mystical tale, one that so eloquently describes the adventurous, free-spirited individual for whom Aldo Martins creations are most fitting.

Imbued in rich colours and boasting impeccable jacquard designs, the Vent Del Nord collection offers a wide range of garments of varying knitwear styles.

Though each piece of Aldo Martins attire evokes impressions of far-flung locales and exotic designs, you can now get these wearable works of art online, right here in South Africa, on the Colourbox online store.


Follow the Sun This Season with oneseason

As the final winter chill starts to retreat, the glorious African summer sun begins to grace us with her comforting presence.

With her bright, yet rather humble arrival, most of us are likely to be lost in wonderful reverie, yearning to break free from the confinement of our thick winter layers. A release from the wintry weather means a return to loose-fitting outfits, fun days in the sun and long summer nights spent living life to its fullest.


With the 2016 summer season just around the corner, Colourbox is pleased to present the official launch in-store and online on the Colourbox website of stylishly refined Australia-based fashion brand oneseason.

Born in the winter of 2006, oneseason is the brainchild of Shani Anderson, who at the time of its inception, held a bold and free-spirited vision for the upcoming summer. Having been in the fashion industry for some 3 decades, Anderson aimed to design a range of clothing that would usher in a new era of style and fashion for the women who loved and lived along the Australian coastline.

The oneseason brand followed from this vision and comprised an elegant collection of flowing dresses, stunning shifts and striking throw-over garments that quickly became rather popular and, over the last ten years, well known for their thoughtful nature, imbued with a summery sophistication.

From the very first oneseason range back in 2006 until the current collections of today, the brand’s pieces have been created with only the best quality Indian cotton and viscose. In addition to the luxurious feel of every oneseason garment that these materials create, every print has been hand-designed and crafted, finished off with a unique wash, specifically for the brand.

With oneseason stock available in several countries around the globe, including Australia, New Zealand, Europe and South Africa, the range and brand develop and evolve as it grows from season to season and strength to strength

Keen to get into summer in a truly unique oneseason garment? Visit Colourbox online or at our physical store in Parkhurst, Johannesburg to see more of their sun-inspired range.
