#WhichGolaAreYou – Olivia Purvis

Introducing our latest #WhichGolaAreYou blogger: London-based Olivia Purvis.

Olivia Purvis #WhichGolaAreYouOlivia’s style is the perfect blend of cool, classic and contemporary, and her blog — What Olivia Did — has become a go-to guide for beauty, fashion and lifestyle.

Inspired by Spotify, Pinterest and the style on the streets of London, Olivia’s look is fresh and relaxed with a feminine twist, making her an obvious choice for the campaign.

Gola Classics

Olivia rated Gola Classics as colourful, current and extremely practical — basically able to go with pretty much anything and comfortable enough to walk in for hours on end. More than that, she loved how these shoes look both classic and on trend at the same time, which gives them a retro appeal which is really ‘of the moment’.

Olivia’s chosen style was the Gola Classics Women’s Tennis Trainers. Integrating flawlessly with her personal look, she loves how classic they are, that she can style them with jeans or a dress, and that they perfectly complement her girly style.

If you want an everyday but super stylish outfit, Olivia suggests matching Gola Tennis Trainers with pale blue wash jeans, a white T-shirt and a bomber jacket. The perfect combo for that laidback, ‘just-thrown-on’ look.Olivia Sitting Wearing Gola Classics Women's Tennis Trainers

Gola Classics Women’s Specialist Trainers

Next up were our Gola Classics Women’s Specialist Trainers, a great option when you want to add a pop of colour to your look. Olivia chose Specialist in sky blue but you can get the style in loads of different colours, from gold to navy.

Her top tip if you treat yourself to a pair of Gola Specialist Trainers is to wear them with something in a similar colour for a relaxed yet stylishly coordinated look.Olivia Purvis #WhichGolaAreYou

Which Gola Are You? Last Style of Defense

Next to answer the question ‘Which Gola Are You?’ is Author of Last Style of Defense, Dan Hasby-Oliver…
Last style of Defense 1
Gola is one of the oldest British sportswear brands in existence, who mixes heritage, quality materials and contemporary styling for a fresh approach to footwear. Having been a wonderfully sunny day, I got out in the garden to capture a couple of the SS15 collection – to answer a question of Which Gola Are You?
The first pair I chose was the Samurai Leather Sneakers which fuses a leather upper with a sleek white sole on an ’80s archive inspired profile. Perfect for wearing with a pair of slim cut, washed denim jeans and a bright, graphic t-shirt; the combination of the slightly dressy black leather offsets the casual combination of the two blue tones. .
Next I chose the Made in England Pacer 1905 pair, these are part of the Made in England 1905 collection, which see’s Gola return to its manufacturing roots. Gola Pacer is a jogger based on an original ‘70s design and features a high quality mesh and suede upper on a soft EVA mid sole, that also features Union Flag tab and tongue branding. Adding onto this; because both are these are perfect for exploring the city in, or just running into town to get a few bits, is the Barlow Stone rucksack. New for SS15 is Barlowe, a heavy wash canvas bag with a roll top fastening. Barlowe is a preppy inspired canvas rucksack, featuring a distinctive woven badge and padded should straps, it has all the right styling cues.

We’re All Mad Here – Which Gola Are You?

We asked fashion blogger Kayla Hadlington… Which Gola are you?

I’ve been so excited to finally wear these Gola plimsoles, they’re super comfy and it was such a nice day yesterday I decided to go out and shoot them in this rather lovely weather! The print on the trainers is a collaboration with Liberty London, it makes them feel extra special! I’ve been a big fan of Liberty fabrics for absolutely ages and whenever I go into store I love to go and stare at the fabrics and decide which ones if I would purchase if, yknow.. if I were super rich. This particular fabric is adorable as its their Alice in Wonderland print (hence the title, We’re All Mad Here!!!!) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland! I think my favourite part of the print is how how on one of the toe on the left trainer theres a cute little picture of Humpty Dumpty so whenever I glance down I see him staring up at me which makes me chuckle.

I wasn’t too sure which colour were my favourite, I’m probably going to have to go with pink though as, well, I always choose pink lets face it haha! I’m totally considering wearing one of each colour on each foot, I don’t know why I didn’t think of that for the shoot ahh!! Think I could get away with it?? They look super adorable with little frill socks and jeans or as these are quite girly and cute I would totally wear them with a cute little dress if I wanted to dress or skirt it down a bit.

As the campagin is called #WhichGolaAreYou and I had both of the colours for these trainers I decided to try out two different outfits in a how-to-wear-your-Golas kinda thing, honestly my favourite outfit is definitely the mom jean outfit however I also really like the long socks and the tropical tshirt look which is very summery! think they’d also look super cute with a tennis skirt!

Which Gola are You?

Gola’s 2015 campaign has taken a fresh direction, with a new strap line ‘Which Gola are You?’! We have worked in partnership with established and influential bloggers to try to ascertain which designs from Gola’s SS15 collection best complements their own style by asking the question ‘Which Gola are You?’.

Which Gola are You? Jonathan Daniel Pryce

For our first collaboration we have teamed up with the author of Garcon Jon, a London based street style blogger and photographer. Jonathan Daniel Pryce established Scotland’s leading street style blog in 2008 and is now based in London working as a street and fashion photographer. His current blog www.garconjon.com focuses on his interest in men’s style in all its forms. Jonathan selected the iconic Gola Harrier trainer, take a look at the video below:


We wanted to get a female perspective, so we travelled across the pond and teamed up with New York based model and blogger Natalie Suarez. Natalie has massive domestic and international appeal and is the author of www.natalieoffduty.com. We have again produced a street style shoot and short video highlighting the Gola Comet plimsoll that Natalie likes from Gola’s SS15 collections.

Gola will work with a wide variety of other fashion and lifestyle bloggers throughout 2015, asking that all important question… Which Gola are You?
