Cape Town – Get ready for a day of opulence and glamour at this year’s The Sun Met celebrated with Mumm.
The prestigious equestrian event takes place on January 28 at Kenilworth Racecourse.
Sun International, which has taken over the sponsorship reins of the event, promises to add thrill with an extra dose of elegance, sophistication, glamour and world-class entertainment.
Etienne Cassuto, brand manager of Mumm Champagne, said this year will be different because of new partners, new experiences and a new level of racing and glam.
With an honorary guest list of influential celebrities and designers, and the iconic international champagne Maison Mumm, a memorable experience can be anticipated.
The official theme of The Sun Met celebrated with Mumm is Decades of Glamour. So, get inspired by the last eight decades and dazzle in disco, go all-out in retro or put the glam into grunge.
Fashion label KLUK CGDT advised attendees to use the decade that inspires them as an influence, not a bible. Hats both useful for the sun and for making a statement and block heels and flatforms are a fashionable trend.
Exciting collaborations to expect will be KLUK CGDT and Minnie Dlamini; Warrick Gautier and Cape Town’s Jeannie D; and SA hip hop star Da Les and House of Ole.
KLUK CGDT said the theme is as much about the “now” as it is the past. “It is about making a statement, about a sense of occasion and about appropriate dress.”
Sipping from endless fountains of Mumm’s legendary champagne and mingling with SA’s finest is just a taste of what’s to come. It’s an experience not to be missed.
