Paper Boy - - Front Page -

The central city faces a fash­ion takeover later this month with Heart of the City’s 4 Days of Fash­ion in the City event. The Brit­o­mart precinct is do­ing its bit to cel­e­brate the event with The Fash­ion Ses­sions – a mix of tick­eted and free events, in­clud­ing run­way shows, vintage sales and in­stal­la­tions from Brit­o­mart designers and re­tail­ers. The high­light for us is the group run­way show on 30 March, with Zambesi, Kate Sylvester and World un­der a mar­quee on Tyler Street. Stay tuned for deets of other events around the city. Var­i­ous lo­ca­tions, Brit­o­mart

Feel­ing grounded

A new shoe col­lab cel­e­brates New Zealand’s unique ter­rain

I Love Ugly has col­lab­o­rated with Ja­panese her­itage sports­wear brand Onit­suka Tiger to cre­ate two pairs of shoes – The North-south Pack. Each stitch, speckle and colour ac­cent on the shoes rep­re­sents the ter­rain of the North and South Is­land – think wild coast­lines, vol­canic ther­mal ar­eas and sprawl­ing land­scapes. The North Pack shoe, $220, from I Love Ugly Camp-col­lar shirt in pineap­ple, $113, from Bar­ney Cools. G2 Or­ganic Lin­ing sneak­ers by Spring Court, $287, from The Iconic. Free­way Po­larised Stelvio sun­glasses by Lo­cal Sup­ply, $86, from The Iconic. Buoy beanie by Her­schel Sup­ply Co, $59, from Good as Gold. City Gen­eral Tote by In­case, $99, from Su­perette.

Spot­light on: La Lu­miere

Let there be light

Bring­ing In­sta­gram-wor­thy wed­dings and events to life is all in a day’s work for Kristina Er­colano, owner of light­ing bou­tique La Lu­miere. Her shop spe­cialises in fes­toon and fairy lights, am­bi­ent vintage-style pen­dants and can­dle lanterns – the kind you see hang­ing in­side mar­quees or lin­ing the ta­bles of elab­o­rate outdoor din­ners on the ‘Gram. Opened in Oc­to­ber last year as an ex­ten­sion to her event light­ing busi­ness, which has been op­er­at­ing for 10 years, the shop builds on Er­colano’s rep­u­ta­tion for im­mac­u­late light­ing in­stal­la­tions. Glow on and visit. Unit 11, 16–18 Tay­lors Rd, St Lukes
