NEW ZEALAND SPOTLIGHT
We traveled to New Zealand to find the country’s coolest emerging designers and indie boutiques, and let’s just say we found our tribe. We’re so excited to share it with you!
SHOP OUR EDIT
Favoring the European lines she loves, Melissa Lovoy fills her open, studio-style store with items that entertain an interplay of opposites: casual and elegant, refined and raw, edgy and classic, simple and sophisticated. Shelves are dotted with handmade housewares that make the home happier, racks hang with easily styled garments and small-batch apothecary products with rare ingredients and arousing fragrances are sprinkled throughout the boutique. Everything in her carefully edited collection of independent designer finds is something special.
When you walk into this Edmonton shop you’ll never want to leave. Brought together by pure passion in menswear and fashion, ANNMS provides a simple yet unique source for the discerning guy who seeks menswear choices unparalleled by others. Their belief that minimalism simplifies the shopping experience and that is reflected in everything from their brick and mortar design to their logo. Without relying on bright colors and loud graphics, they let the quality of the products do the talking, anonymously.
Yes, we are closed on Mondays. We are a textile brand currently making baskets and bags out of rope and thread. We are here to give fair wages to our producers and spread the word about ethical manufacturing. Every item is made with love in our studio in Brooklyn, NY. Why Closed Mondays? We feel as though the traditional Monday through Friday nine to five isn't necessary in the modern world. We believe that if people have a great life outside of work, they bring more energy into their work. "Great life" means different things to different people, but we think that having extra time to take care of life stuff (whether it's family, self-care, doctors appointments, or just a whole day to binge watch TV) allows people to fully focus on work stuff while at work. Closed Mondays was founded by Bekka Palmer. Bekka is a designer, photographer and generally crafty person who feels physical pain at the sight of fast fashion and poor working conditions. Her grandma taught her to sew by age 6 and she hasn't stopped since.
