D-Robe Outdoors… Free to Be

https://www.d-robeoutdoors.com/

D-Robe Outdoors, a functionally stylish piece of outerwear inspired by the ease and protection of a changing robe, resistant to all weather conditions and timeless in design. Whether strolling seaside or zig zagging through a bustling city, this classic jacket integrates high-performance features and inspired elements, to keep you covered regardless of what life throws your way. Featuring a recycled fleece interior lining and embodying the length of a trench coat and style of a modern parka, the Beaufort Robe is the ultimate shield for daily life when it comes to staying warm and dry against harsh outdoor conditions. D-Robe’s durable and versatile selections are genderless, ageless and stand the test of time. Effortlessly limiting overconsumption as a go-to staple that fits perfectly with any capsule collection, using sustainable, plastic-free packaging and eco-friendly materials.

D-Robe was specifically designed to transform and adapt to your needs. It is the perfect outerwear companion and can be worn at work and at play, in the city or by the sea, on and off the rugby pitch. Whether you need to keep warm during half time, are cooling down post-match in the rain, or are supporting your team from the side-lines, our versatile Robes are perfect to throw on and are guaranteed to keep you warm and dry so you can be ready for every eventuality.

Fully waterproof, wind-resistant and crafted with a breathable outer shell, the robes are made of recycled nylon and finished with taped seams, to enhance the waterproof protection (un-taped needle stitching leaves tiny holes for water to seep through in wet conditions). The outer shell is fully wipeable making it easy to clean your robe after a day on the muddy pitch. The irresistibly soft fleece lining of recycled polyester houses multiple functional pockets that protect your everyday essentials, including a detachable inner pocket that can be easily removed and washed to keep your robe fresh. Our signature D-Ring is fitted to the outer shell and serves to hang your robe for quick drying or easy storage – in the changing room or back at home. For a personalised fit, and maximised protection, you can quickly adjust the Velcro sleeve straps and hood drawstrings. They have also been designed with a quick close placket to cover the double-way zip for additional warmth and shielding.

The brand has been created by a collective group of individuals passionate about the outdoors, the environment, sport and good design. Each bringing their own industry experience and demands for what the perfect everyday jacket should fulfil. One of those individuals is the brands Director, Matt, who states,

Through family surf trips, Devon holidays and athletics track days we each began to see the advantage of a changing robe, but none currently on the market were ones we would personally choose to wear. Whilst they served a practical purpose, none were stylish or versatile and although this current product suited surfers well, they seemed to only live on the beach. The team therefore noted that by improving the functionality, quality and style of the classic change robe, we could create an incredibly versatile jacket – the best of its kind on the market – that’s both sustainable and affordable. A jacket that would not only be better suited for all water sports, but also to keep you warm and dry walking the dog and commuting to work, chilling with friends at a BBQ or watching a match from the side-lines – ideal for sports enthusiasts and everyday heroes alike.”

Their brand attitude is encapsulated in the phrase Free to Be – with a Beaufort Robe in your arsenal you don’t need to worry about anything that life, or nature, could throw at you, you can just simply be.

“Free to Be”

Polaroid Go, The World’s Most Portable Analogue Camera,
Comes in Two New Colourways with Bold Accessories


This April, Polaroid is adding to the fan-favourite Polaroid Go family two dynamic colourways,
coloured filters, and arthouse-style black instant film.
Polaroid Go, the world’s tiniest, most portable analogue instant camera, is pushing the
boundaries of where you can ‘Go Create.’
This year, Polaroid is celebrating more ways to be creative on-the-go by releasing the pocket-sized camera in
two bold colorways, Black and Red, along with new creator-centric additions: a filter set for blue, red or orangetinted photos, and matte-black frame instant film for drama that kicks.
“The Polaroid Go has portability and the spirit of exploration in its DNA. We’ve seen an incredible response for
this new camera format so we wanted to introduce even more ways for people to dive deeper into their creativity,
while making it easy for them to go anywhere and capture whenever inspiration hits,” Oskar Smolokowski,
Polaroid CEO, said.
At only 10.5 cm, 8.4 cm wide, and 6.1 cm tall, the Polaroid Go is the smallest analogue instant camera in the
world. Designed as a wearable creative companion, the Polaroid Go empowers creators to go out and explore
the secret, imperfect, and unexpected places in the world.
To celebrate the launch of Polaroid Go Black and Red, Polaroid kicks off the campaign in May with creativity and
exploration at its heart. An evolution of last year’s Go Create campaign, 2022’s iteration brings together creators
across artistic disciplines and cultures. Ibby Njoya, an artist and set designer, and Miranda Makaroff, a fashion
designer, DJ, blogger and actress, travelled to Tenerife, Spain to show off their creative visions on the rugged
island.
“For me, Polaroid has always been a tool of documentation and experimentation. As an artist, it’s allowed me to
process the development of my skills as a set designer. Getting to experiment with the Polaroid Go’s portability
during our shoot in the Canary Islands was so fun, I love how easy it is to bring it everywhere,” Njoya said.
The new colourways join the original Polaroid Go white camera, providing more opportunity for self expression
wherever the next adventure leads. The Polaroid Go builds on its creative-minded features like the selfie mirror,
self-timer, long-lasting battery, dynamic flash, double exposure, and travel-friendly accessories with the
introduction of the camera’s first-ever lens filters and the smallest black frame instant film.
“I love the new possibilities that the Polaroid Go creates. It makes it so easy to capture inspiration wherever I
travel, which plays a big part into my creative process as an artist,” Makaroff said.
Polaroid Go Black and Polaroid Go Red are available April 26 at Polaroid.com/Go.
Polaroid Go Black Camera £109.99
Polaroid Go Black Film Double Pack £18.99
Polaroid Go Filter Set £17.99

Celebrating Father’s Day – an ungendered gifting guide for all father figures
This Father’s Day, let’s go big on celebrating dads, step-dads and fatherly figures. While material gifts are lovely, they should also be given time to rest and reset, plus the opportunity to collect memories instead of things. We’re also aware that not all dads and dad-stand-ins are into what we deem “traditional” Father’s Day gifts – socks, beer bread kits, ties, and the like. Instead, many are interested in more neutral gifts and the gift of time well spent. Here are some ideas on how to spoil your special person this Father’s Day.

An actual celebration

This Father’s Day, a host of restaurants will be promoting buffets and lunches in honour of father figures. Radisson Blu Waterfront in Cape Town, for example, hosts an annual Father’s Day buffet. Take the responsibilities of cooking away from both parents, invite a few loved ones and get each one to prepare a speech on the effect that your father figure has had on your life. Picking a scenic location like the Radisson Blu Waterfront gives you the added benefit of being stimulated by nature and the opportunity to take a post-lunch stroll along the docks before indulging in dessert. If you’re in Johannesburg, pop into the Radisson RED Hotel in Rosebank for a special experience at their RED Rooftop. This one is especially for those who are die-hard rugby supporters as there will be a screening of old Rugby World Cup matches and a family-style braai on the rooftop. The braai offerings will be served on a rustic harvest table with dishes like boerewors, rosemary-marinated chicken, biltong, and side dishes including corn bread, bean salad, vetkoek and more.

A little time off of their feet

Give dad a break by giving them the gift of rest this Father’s Day and help him with any chores that he may need doing around the house. If you can’t do it yourself, check out what SweepSouth has to offer. SweepSouth’s Connect services offer a range of household services designed to allow people to put their feet up. A great idea is to book a few hours worth of handyman services and walk through the house to look for loose nails, squeaking hinges and leaks and allow the handyman to fix them all. SweepSouth CEO Aisha Pandor says, if you wish, you can include tutorials as part of the service. This is where the handyman does a live demonstration showing you how to fix those things yourself – a great opportunity to empower yourself and others in the home.

Introduce some new tech

For those dads who grew up listening to vinyl, followed by cassette tapes and CDs, having all of the artists they love available to listen to on one app should be great news. Help your loved one listen to all their favourite jams in one place and set them up on Spotify’s streaming app. Here, they can listen to millions of artists and insightful, funny and relaxing podcast content. There’s a free option or you could pay for a basic subscription for one family member at R59.99 a month.

Additionally, if your parents love art, design, music or comedy, introduce them to the PopSpot social network. It’s a social hub for creativity of all types where users can directly support their favourite local creatives and artists.

If your dad has been speaking about investing in crypto and you’re wanting to help them get started, a good idea would be to set them up on the UpandUp app. This app automatically invests in Bitcoin by rounding off your change, or adding on a specified amount when you use your linked bank account for a purchase. It’s simple for anyone to use because you just set it and forget it.

Get creative

Workshops and outdoor activities have doubled in popularity after lockdown. People are excited to be outdoors again and keen to participate in new things. It has long been said that flowers have a stimulating effect on our mind and our mood. Despite this, gifting flowers has been a gendered gift seen as being for women only. Cape Town’s Flower Cafe offers therapeutic flower arranging workshops for entire families so that dads can enjoy getting creative and relaxed too.

For more creative experiences across the country, Airbnb Experiences offers a host of workshops including hikes, neighbourhood tours, cooking expeditions and mushroom and seaweed foraging.

Gifting loved ones by nurturing their creativity or personal interests and exploring new technology with them will prove far more meaningful this Father’s Day and reflects the diverse range of parental figures and dads out there.
