THE COLOMBO x Société Magazine
Once a year Cantabrians like to gather for what seems like their love of horse racing and (or?) public drinking. Fascinators are as high as dresses are short and albeit glasses are always full, at the end of the day, most wallets are empty. In spite of the fact that I am yet to understand the sense that drives gambling on animals and poorly applied fake tan, I am certain about one thing: If there is one place in town that knows how to celebrate in style, it is without a doubt THE COLOMBO. As one of my favourite retail spaces in Christchurch, I admire the sense of innovation and playfulness that seems to flow through everything THE COLOMBO does. Saving the best for last, the shopping precinct teamed up with another local favourite – The Société Magazine – to celebrate the end of Cup Week. From the flower arrangements to the invite tags, the attention to detail was outstanding. The space beside the Riccarton Racecourse felt elegant yet easygoing – almost like an oasis within the hustle and bustle of all the racing action. Here are some of my favourite impressions.
