A recent trip to the Miss Crabb store on Ponsonby Road lead me to discover Areez Katki‘s new range of knits for Winter 2016. If you have not come across the collection and you like unique, high quality, designed and made in New Zealand pieces - all the fibres used in Areez’s Winter 2016 collection are made from a selection of Organic Heritage Merino yarns, and are sourced (grown, batch-dyed & spun) in Hawkes Bay – you really need to check it out.

The pieces that immediately caught my attention was the aran-knit crew-neck sweater (I know, I gravitate to the same things in the same colours, I’m a creature of habit okay?) that also comes in an amazing oatmeal, and the above, super soft, wide rib dress that I’m pretty sure I’m too old to pull off, but would if I could.

Anyway, I liked the stuff so much I decided that I would wrangle a couple of new faces from work (I work at Clyne, did you know that? I don’t know if I told you or not) and have James shoot them in a couple of pieces. I’m super happy with the results, see below.
