JOHANNESBURG — It was just the shot of adrenaline the South African retail scene needed. In one fell swoop, the new 322,800-square-foot Protea Court extension at the sprawling Sandton City mall in Johannesburg opened, with fast-fashion giant Zara as the anchor tenant and main attraction.
At a cocktail reception to mark the opening earlier this week, the most coveted invitation was not that of Sandton City; it was the Zara launch. While a plastic wristband guaranteed access to the mall’s party, only an orange, blue or white string bracelet allowed access into Zara’s cordoned premises.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
