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!

Founded by a trio of childhood friends back in 2012, Priory has since earned a loyal following for its minimalist yet distinct separates. The small brand is based in Vancouver, where it collaborates with local businesses to develop and produce its designs. In keeping with the local(ish) spirit, none of the brand’s fabric comes from overseas; everything is sourced from the west coast of North America.
Neighbour is one of those boutiques where you could spend a long time just standing in it, wishing you could live there. New to Vancouver's Gastown neighborhood, the sleek, modern shop is a block away from their brother men's wear boutique Neighbour. Focusing on quality over quantity and trends, they stock the pristine shelves and racks with designers such as Acne Studios, Lemaire, Christopher Raeburn, Thakoon Addition and Organic by John Patrick.
Karu is a line of artisan-made textiles and clothing founded on the connection between thoughtful design and living well. Balancing style with simplicity, craftsmanship with ease, each versatile piece is designed to be timeless and convey the softness of feeling at home. Traditional and sustainable processes unite with contemporary aesthetics across home goods, sleepwear and seasonless apparel collections. Whether in the block prints, embroidery, dyeing, or stitching, each Karu product has a handprint, and is therefore completely unique.
