Republic: Spring Menu Launch

Republic recently launched their new spring menu and I was invited along to have a taste of the new offerings.

The menu has an interesting range of dishes, from beetroot carpaccio to squid ink spaghetti, there’s something to suit all taste-buds. To my surprise is really enjoyed the beetroot carpaccio, it was like really thin pickled beetroot, it had a slight tang, but was also a little sweet and crunchy, its a great starter. Other dishes I enjoyed included the scallop and house bacon with sweet corn puree and dessert of course…Dark Chocolate Mi-Ciut….what is this you ask? It is the fancy name for flourless chocolate cake, which came with strawberry compote, vanilla bean ice-cream and hazelnut toffee….yum!

Here are some photos from the evening….If only you could taste it through the computer! The next best thing though, would be to go to Republic and try them for yourself! Enjoy

Revoque [Grey Luxe] A/W Preview

Revoque recently held a media brunch to preview their Autumn Winter [Grey Luxe] Collection hosted at The Republic in Norwood. We were treated to a champagne brunch while designer, Danica Ryan took us through her inspiration behind the new collection. What I love about Revoque is that the pieces are very modest yet edgy, so each piece works for people like me who can’t get away with wearing short, revealing and tight (fitted) clothes but can still look ‘cool’! I’m also loving the colour palette and textures of this collection. The grey/blue colour is so unique and mixed with the beige net like fabric…..Loving it!

Also on display at the brunch were some amazing hats (as you will see below) by Milliner; Sylvy Earl. Her creations are truly beautiful, and she is happy to work with you to make sure the head piece is fitted to you, which is such a luxury.

Overall it was a beautiful brunch, featuring amazing clothes, hats and food…..also I just want to say how cool the table decor was, it was so A/W inspired which matched the event perfectly, and we each had a block of wood that was hand cut, which held our name cards, such a personal touch….and a great idea for a dinner party!
