Britomart is thrilled to announce the arrival of Deadly Ponies with a “Guerilla Store” now open on Tyler Street.

Deadly Ponies is a luxury New Zealand accessories label synonymous with artisanal quality and sumptuous materials. Renowned for working with local tanneries, Creative Director Liam Bowden has been crafting leather goods and accessories since 2005.

Opening on the ground floor of the Seafarers building on Tyler St, Britomart today, the “Guerilla Store” concept is a creative space which will “evolve in phases” for the rest of 2017, representing the best of Deadly Ponies catering to both men and women.

The store has been fitted out in collaboration with interiors superstar Katie Lockhart. It is a distinctive space that is “artistically raw” and features preserved Pierre Frey Braquenié wallpaper from 1824, depicting various village activities in Normandy. The beautifully historical and ornate French classicism fit-out is a luxurious twist, perfectly honed to the Britomart experience and the store’s offerings. According to Bowden, the space will “dynamically develop” with the introduction of different collections.

What started as one-off leather accessories made for friends and family has developed into an ever-expanding range of products; hugely covetable pieces, every season, both here and across the globe. Deadly Ponies is a Kiwi success story and a very welcome addition to Britomart.

Designer and storeowner Eddie von Dadelszen has created a brand devoted to the pleasure of wearing exceptional clothing. Materials are sourced from the best makers in the world – Dadelszen travels to Verona for shoes, and Palma for suits, to the finest mohair mills in the UK and to Seraphin in France, the leather jacket makers who makes for Hermes. These are the ingredients for a growing range of menswear (and soon, womenswear) that von Dadelszen believes epitomizes luxury.

Having come from the role of Creative Director for suitmakers Working Style, this is a man on a mission who has a very particular vision of success. Whether it’s a single piece or a whole wardrobe, everything produced by von Dadelszen is customisable and will be hand made following a consultation at the appointment only, upstairs showroom.

“I make collections for people who I find incredibly attractive: the modern, the brave, the smart” von Dadelszen says. “I’m inspired by the dualities that exist in life and my clothing lives to dress these circumstances, fantasies and relationships.”

If you’re after an experience you’ll never forget, and clothing impossible to upgrade, you may need to get in touch.

Against a backdrop of iconic Tiffany blue, Tiffany & Co.’s first flagship store for New Zealand sets a new standard for luxury, with both contemporary and traditional jewellery and gift lines on offer.

Brilliance Awaits – that’s what the signs promised, as the entire ground floor of Britomart’s Australis House building began a makeover like no other, in preparation for the arrival of Tiffany & Co.’s first New Zealand flagship store. The doors opened in October 2016, redefining the meaning of luxury for the city of Auckland.

The legacy of Tiffany began in 1830s New York, when 25 year old Charles Lewis Tiffany, along with business partner John B Young, opened a “stationery and fancy goods store” with a $1,000 advance from his father. They called it Tiffany & Co. – the company would become a global icon, influencing style and paving futures with its famous brilliant-cut diamond engagement rings , intricately crafted silverware and more.

Interestingly, Tiffany & Co. were an early proponant of ethical practice in their sourcing of materials; Chairman and CEO Michael J. Kowalski has said, “Our position as a leader in the luxury jewellery market gives us the opportunity and the responsibility to conduct our business in a manner that is consistent with our core beliefs—protection of the environment, respect for human rights and support for the communities in which we do business.”

The Britomart store houses the Tiffany® Setting, the ultimate engagement ring which has enjoyed universal popularity since its 1886 introduction. The setting is arrayed with other elegant engagement rings and wedding bands handcrafted by Tiffany artisans. Other collections available include fancy coloured diamonds such as Tiffany Yellow Diamonds in contemporary settings. The store also showcases the bejewelled masterpieces of Jean Schlumberger, sculptural jewellery of Elsa Peretti and bold creations of Paloma Picasso—Tiffany’s exclusive designers, who are among the most honoured in the world of fashion and jewellery.

Each sparkling creation is wrapped in the Tiffany Blue Box, emblematic of beauty and excellence throughout the world since it was first used in 1878.

There really is nothing like Tiffany & Co., and we’ve longed to get a glimpse of the magic. With their arrival in Britomart we can safely say that the longing is gone, but the magic is here to stay.

Established in 2001 as a mecca for lovers of the best in international fashion, Fabric’s flagship store in Britomart is an oasis of refinement. From the Katie Lockhart-designed fitout to the impeccable curation of the world’s best fashion magazines, this is a tastemaker’s paradise.

Fabric was founded by kiwis Simon Miller and Marty Andrews who buy mainly from Japan and Paris and who hold value quality above the virtue of a passing fad. Labels offered in store cover menswear, womenswear, footwear and fragrance and include Comme des Garcons, Isabel Marant, A.P.C and Levis Vintage Clothing.

After fifteen years across different parts of town, Miller and Andrews consolidated two stores into one with Britomart, making it their only standalone store worldwide. The feeling and layout speaks to Miller’s love for the faultless boutiques of Japan and features traditional Japanese changing rooms and other careful nods to the culture. As with all of the world’s best shopping spots, there are entry-point goodies such as magazines, perfumes and casual accessories alongside higher priced items. Combine all this with an exceptionally knowledgable team of staff and a consistently good soundtrack… and you have Fabric.

New Zealand’s first Chanel boutique brings a slice of French chic to Auckland’s most celebrated fashion precinct

From the little black dress to the original women’s pant, Coco Chanel singlehandedly redefined fashion in the 20th century. Her legacy lives on through her eponymous label and Chanel is still synonymous with timeless style.

The launch of Chanel’s first New Zealand boutique at Britomart represents a new era for our city’s fashion scene. Located in the Australis House, the fragrance and beauty boutique will also introduce the Chanel line of eyewear to an Auckland audience.

The building’s early 20th century provenance pairs perfectly with a label that was launched in 1907. The lofty boutique space features original brickwork and Kauri timber floors – a distinctively ‘new world’ take on the presentation of luxury goods.

Also on display is art that plays on the colours and themes of Chanel’s product lines, providing additional in-store delights for visitors to the space.

“The opening of the first boutique in New Zealand is a momentous occasion for Chanel,” explains says David Blakeley, the managing director of Chanel in New Zealand and Australia.

He continues: “We are very proud to have carefully designed this new style of boutique alongside the original character of the Britomart building.

”Products to look out for include the new Le Rouge makeup collection (the first outing by Creative Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica), the Les Exclusif fragrance collection, and La Solution 10 de Chanel, a moisturizer specially formulated for sensitive skin.

Born in the hills and praised on the street, iconic New Zealand clothing label Huffer is a must-visit Britomart stop-off for those who love casual style.

It’s been nearly 20 years since Huffer was founded by two mates with a big idea and dreams of taking New Zealand streetwear to the next level. A lot has changed in that time, but the label is still an icon of cool Kiwi fashion and Huffer has moved beyond our borders to take the world by storm.

Huffer’s Britomart HQ exemplifies the label’s casual/cool aesthetic. An artfully considered spot, exposed beams, high ceilings, brick walls and wooden floors are complemented by crisp white and glossy black, clean lines and a scattering of rugs.

Here, an impressive collection of men’s and women’s attire adorns the racks. For the ladies, garments range from statement tees and anoraks to delicate silk dresses. On the lads side, sweats, street accessories and the infamous Huffer puffa all feature along with an impressive collection of shirts, shorts and more.

Influenced by New Zealand and inspired by the world, the brand doesn’t associate with a traditional ‘target market’ like most. Instead, owner Steve Dunstan explains, “Huffer is all about attitude.”

“It’s relaxed, a little rebellious…but not in a bad way.” And as such, shoppers range from teens to the top.

Embracing and celebrating those with a similar outlook, Huffer puts on a weekly Free Coffee Friday, or ‘FCF’ to those in the know. Exactly as it sounds, the Friday session invites locals to stop by the Customs Street East store for a free cup of Allpress and doughnut first thing in the morning. A long running tradition, FCF started years ago in the brand’s original Queen Street space and has grown ever since. Running from early-10.30am(ish) every Friday, the community based, low key event is open to any and all.

Crossing the spectrum from functional outerwear to highly fashionable streetwear, Huffer covers all bases, and it covers them well. But when probed for a little insight into just how the brand has managed to achieve this, perma-relaxed Steve simply shrugs, “I don’t know how it works…but we’ll just roll with it.”

Stocking some of the brand’s most iconic footwear ranges like the Stan Smith, ZX Flux, Tubular and Superstars, it is a mecca for sneaker heads, a local cultural epicentre.

Characterised by an edgy dark beauty, the timeless designs of this iconic Kiwi fashion house celebrate local identity and the individual sense of self.

Leading New Zealand fashion label Zambesi is recognised for its unique style signature: a brooding emotional resonance with a streak of playful inventiveness.

Disregarding obvious trends, Zambesi’s focus is garments that can be worn and treasured over time. Womenswear designer Elisabeth Findlay is inspired by fabrics, taking carefully chosen cloth in unexpected directions. Vintage cuts and fabrics are given innovative interpretations, interplaying hues, textures and weights.

For Zambesi Man, clever detailing is combined with precisely tailored nods to traditional and utilitarian menswear styles, resulting in beautifully cut, highly wearable collections.

New Zealand fashion identity

Zambesi was founded by Elisabeth and Neville Findlay in 1979 and was one of the first labels in New Zealand to express a strong local identity. Its balance of innovation and restraint has had a vital role in shaping New Zealanders’ unique fashion sensibility.

Neville describes the label as “a stylist’s collection, which lends itself to people who want to be individual, and are savvy enough to understand and be confident in their own styling”. The versatile pieces are open to interpretation and can be worn and styled in many different ways, working for diverse ages, sizes and personalities.

Reflecting the edginess of the clothing is the raw industrial character of the flagship boutique at Britomart. It’s the only store in the world to carry the full range of Zambesi menswear and womenswear, along with a carefully handpicked range of international designers such as Maison Martin Margiela, Raf Simons and renowned New Zealand label Nom*D.
