In the first week of July 2011, two prominent houses for fashion shopping invited to events with a touch of sportive competition - one in Berlin, the other in London.

The Londoner cult fashion mall 'Harrods' is the host of the pop-up store (opened on 5 July, until September) of the Italian shoe and clothing label Geox in cooperation with Red Bull Racing.
