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
Sherie Muijs garnered widespread attention and a national award from her debut collection of crisp white shirts entitled ‘White Wash’. The designer believes that the clothes we wear affect our confidence, our ambition, our sense of worth and the freedom to be. And, that we surround ourselves with the tools and resources we need to be effective, including the way we dress, which when done in a way that feels genuine allows us not only to be effective but also to be ourselves. Sherie’s sole focus is on shirts, selecting materials of the finest nature and designed with painstaking attention into the production of her garments.
Clark Street Mercantile
At Clark Street Mercantile, they aim to bring people closer to the products they acquire. They do this by meticulously handpicking every piece that ends up in their space. Each of the brands chosen either has a history, or is in the process of writing their own by producing quality goods through tried and tested techniques. They focus on craftsmanship, so the customer can understand the heritage, process and love put into each piece. This is the kind of place that you’ll find things that are not only built to last but something you will pass on for generations.
Simply put, Vancouver’s Goodboy Collective makes dog accessories and necessities that are actually nice looking. Think artful ceramic food bowls, hand-knit chew toys, leashes and collars made from durable vegetable tanned saddle leather — pretty much everything Fido needs that you’ll actually want in your home. Even cooler: 10% of proceeds go to Thank Dog I Am Out, a registered non-profit dedicated to rescuing and re-homing dogs in British Columbia as well as high-kill shelters in the US and abroad.
