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
Shop Super Street
Los Angeles local Lucy Akin launched Shop Super Street in 2014 with the aim to offer a special curated mix of fashion and culture. The small yet dynamic boutique carries exclusive accessories and ready-to-wear from leading fashion collections while sharing the space with cult skate and streetwear brands. Plus, you’re bound to find unexpectedly desirable speciality objects from a range of local and international artists and designers. Reflecting and exporting the full culture of Los Angeles from the ground on up, the Shop Super Street concept takes a fresh, genre-busting approach to what to covet now.
BASUS is a French urban contemporary brand, largely inspired by the city life, nature and architecture. They infuse these elements into each collection by adding unexpected details that surprise, so the basics are not that basic. The brand has dedicated itself to maintaining a respectful and responsible approach to the environment. Their clothing is designed in Paris and the collections are primarily made in France and Portugal, and all the materials are high-quality textiles from Europe and Japan. They even produced their very own material––cork leather–– that is both natural and recyclable, which has quickly become the symbol of the BASUS eco-conscience.
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.
