- About a year and a half ago, I was in the middle of the coldest Winter I’ve ever experienced. I was flying from London to New York (via Los Angeles. I know right. I flew past New York only to fly back. To save $500. I don’t even want to talk about it) and I was at the airport and I decided I wanted some Timberlands. I was going to encounter snow and I’m pretty sure I had a pair when I was a kid and I was feeling all nostalgic and to cut the story short I never bought them but I still kind of want a pair. I saw the above Colette x Timberland Nadège Winter Work Boots online the other day and while I don’t like most of the pairs, I do really love the one pair front right with the floral on the back of the ankle. Each pair is one-of-a-kind and uses vintage fabrics so the chances of me getting my hands on that particular pair is slim to none, but its nice to dream sometimes, right?
- I don’t know if you remember, but earlier this year I was having a meltdown about accommodation in Sydney for Australian Fashion Week, and someone came to my rescue via email. The girl’s name is Frith and as well as being a New Zealander and pretty much one of the nicest people I’ve never met, she’s also very clever. Frith runs Bay & Fyfe, a creative concept label. Bay & Fyfe teams with artists and helps them develop their art into fashion, design and homewares. For example, the latest collaboration is a limited edition (all their collaborations are limited edition) 100% fine wool scarf with a print designed by Daimon Downey (ex Sneaky Sound System). Nice, huh? Check it out.
- This isn’t new to me or new this week, but it may be new to you. I’ve been reluctant to write about this place because it’s my spot, you know? A not too busy place I like to go on the regular, for a quiet drink or a catch-up or even sometimes for a meeting. Molten Wine Bar is, as the name suggests, the next door wine bar of Molten restaurant in Mt Eden Village (in Auckland, for those who aren’t from around here) and for a good while I was going there every week, on my own, getting a drink and some crinkle cut hot chips (pictured) with truffle aioli. The best. The rest of the menu ain’t too bad either. I suggest you check it out.
(Okay I know this post is super late but I HAD A BUSY DAY OKAY?!)
