Huffer A/W 2013: Uphill Battles.

Posted on February 11, 2013

I received these Huffer campaign shots in my inbox this morning. They’re the follow up to that video I posted last week. I haven’t seen the Autumn/Winter collection in person yet, but by the looks of things, it’s bound to be a goodie. Some of these shots are mind-blowing. I’m not allowed to disclose where exactly these were taken within New Zealand (*cough* South Island *cough*), but I can tell you that Ryan Kenny shot it, Zara Mirkin styled it and Ella Verberne, Callum Smith and Matt Hall took on the duty of models in the wilderness. My favourites below. This collection starts dropping this week so keep an eye out:

New week, new things: SUPPLY is now selling online.

Posted on November 27, 2012

After 10 years since opening their first brick and mortar in Darlinghurst, SUPPLY in Sydney has opened an online store. If you’re not already aware, SUPPLY is pretty much the best multi-brand menswear store in Australia. They stock a whole bunch of exclusive, highly coveted brands (including White Mountaineering, Supreme, Nike (and Nike x Undercover), Neighborhood, Comme des Garcons Homme, Odd Future, OriginalFake, Junya Watanabe, Passport, Vivism, and more recently – New Zealand’s very own Arcade) so this is pretty exciting. Not all the brands are available on the site (for all of you thinking you had found a new way to get your hands on Supreme) but a lot are and there’s still more coming. Best of all, they ship to New Zealand…

Disclaimer: As a precursor to this post I feel it is my duty, nay, my moral obligation as a blogger to inform (read: warn) you that what follows you is LONG. 26-images-and-poorly-constructed-yet-alphabetized-reasons long. If you make it through and want to see more images (yes, there are actually more), see here. Otherwise, good luck and go forth my friends. Good luck and go forth:

New week, new things: Barkers {& Friends} Pop-Up Edition.

Posted on July 16, 2012

In case you hadn’t noticed, there’s a new pop-up store occupying what used to be an abandoned space between the Video Ezy and SPQR on Ponsonby Road in Auckland. This is the Barkers {& Friends} Ponsonby pop-up shop. Last week I went in to have a little look-see and I was impressed by what I found. If I’m being completely honest, I had low expectations upon first hearing about the pop-up. I was anticipating just another Barkers store, in a Ponsonby location. What presented itself was much more – this store’s interior reminds me of the J Crew men’s store in New York – with its considered fit out and vintage furnishings (courtesy of, in my opinion, one of Auckland’s best stores – Flotsam…

This is a sneak peek at Zambesi’s S/S 2012-2013 Collection.

Posted on June 22, 2012

Last week I was invited to view Zambesi‘s Spring/Summer 2012-2013 at their old Vulcan Lane store in the city. Expecting it to be your average press showing upon receiving the invite, I was surprised to find an email in my inbox the day before, with the note: “See you tomorrow! You are encouraged to bring a stills camera as we will be providing models and a backdrop for you to style and shoot the new collection.” Intriguing! And such a great idea. Here are some of the shots I got on the day. I put together two looks – no prizes for guessing which ones they are…

New week, new things: The Hillside & Co Edition.

Posted on June 18, 2012

About a week ago I discovered this site, and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. The online store is actually Hickorees Hard Goods, but the bit I’m obsessed with is the section where they’re selling The Hill-Side & Co. The Hill-Side & Co is basically The Hill-Side (purveyors of interesting prints and fabrics – you may or may not have seen their scarves and ties around the blogosphere) and their collaborations with various other brands. There are a multitude of collab products on offer, including furniture, a multicoloured-panel, chambray shirt in collaboration with Gitman Brothers Vintage (Note: Watch the video on that link, it’s so good) and some amazing leaf printed pants that wouldn’t look amiss on New Zealand photographer Rene Vaile (the King of…
