ZANDO.co.za, South Africa’s largest online retail company, has recently launched its own quarterly magazine. Announcing the news were local celebrities and designers including Dean Fuel, Dj Mixi and TK from Goodhope FM, David Tlale, Susanna Kennedy, Jo Carlin and a host of others, all of who found their own individual style on Zando.co.za.
Sports Illustrated model Roxane Van Rooyen, twin sister of Simone Van Rooyen, featured as the first issue’s cover star. The magazine was photographed on location in Cape Town, at two venues that encapsulate summer, the 15 on Orange Hotel and the 2Views house in Camps bay.
“Our debut Twin issue is much like online shopping. A twin experience begins with an initial thrill of finding that perfect product and the second rush of adrenaline when it arrives at your door,” said Gennaro Pisapia, the magazine’s editor. The summer 2012 issue features over 70 high-gloss pages of retail therapy. There are a few great reads in this edition including a short piece about local fashion designers the Holmes Brothers, a one-on-one interview with the cover girl and her sister, and a detailed look at what’s happening in contemporary fashion by guest writer Robynne Kahn (afashionfriend).
“It’s time to take convenience to the next level. Customers can shop for this season’s latest looks and products in their own time,” said Peter Allerstorfer MD and co-founder of ZANDO.co.za. The Zando Magazine has a print run of 30 000 copies, which will be distributed throughout South Africa and are available online for download at http://www.zando.co.za/summer-edition-2012/.
