A FINE FILLY

Fili­gree Fine Jewels is on the move, with a new shop called Filly set to open at the Tan­nery this week.

Fea­tur­ing a more youth­ful vibe and fash­ion-ori­en­tated styles, Filly is aimed at mak­ing the jew­ellery collection more ac­ces­si­ble and af­ford­able to a wider mar­ket, while still keep­ing the brand’s fo­cus on high qual­ity ma­te­ri­als.

The store will also tem­po­rar­ily house Fili­gree, as the Mon­treal St store is clos­ing to make way for a new lo­ca­tion com­ing soon to Colombo St in Sy­den­ham.

Check the web­site, fili­gree.co.nz for up­dates.

CHECK MATE

Punk plaids and pretty prints fea­ture in the lat­est collection from Glas­sons, ap­pro­pri­ately named Pretty in punk.

Styles range from leather-look skirts and checked shirts to long flo­ral dresses and play­suits, along with some fluffy knit cardis and boyfriend sweaters that look ideal for win­ter lay­er­ing. They’re avail­able in store now or on­line at glas­sons.co.nz

TEA TIME

Jane Daniels has teamed up with the ‘‘Pink Sis­ters’’ of MasterChef New Zealand to launch her win­ter collection with a high tea on Tues­day (March 18) in Merivale.

Along with styles from the new range, in­spired by the colourful cities on the old Silk Road, guests can en­joy treats from Fiona and Bron­wyn, as well as a per­for­mance by the lovely opera singer Polly Ott.

Tick­ets are $40 each and spa­ces are limited. The first show will be held at 11am,

WHAT I AM

fol­lowed by a sec­ond show at 2.30pm.

WAVE YOUR FLAG

Funky prints, clas­sic styles and cool out­er­wear make up the new collection from Auck­land-based menswear la­bel I Love Ugly.

Those prints range from a quirky ‘‘English­man’’ char­ac­ter to cartoon il­lus­tra­tions, along with a fun flag mo­tif that’s fea­tured on a mix of shirts, jumpers and pants.

More clas­sic styles in­clude striped polo shirts and ba­sic but­ton-down shirts, as well as some very dap­per checked blaz­ers.

Selected styles are avail­able at In­def­i­nite Def­i­nite in Re:Start, or check out the brand on­line at iloveugly.net

Whether you like your jew­ellery bold and chunky or del­i­cate and de­mure, Kagi’s new ‘‘I am’’ range has some­thing to fit the bill.

The collection en­cour­ages women to cel­e­brate their unique styles and fea­tures in­no­va­tive new de­signs as well as pieces that ex­tend on the brand’s bestsellers. These in­clude mix and match ear­rings, pink pearls, cu­bist-in­spired pen­dants and some in­ter­est­ing Dutch-in­spired lucky charms.

Go to kag­i­jewel lery.com to see the new styles or find lo­cal stock­ists.

BUN­DLE UP

Lux­u­ri­ous win­ter coats are one of the few things that make those cold weather days more bear­able. And if you’re on the hunt for a new one, Gre­gory has some styles that are likely to tick all the boxes.

Chic long coats in clas­sic beige and black will keep you warm for years to come, while the brand’s shorter jack­ets in trendy pas­tel shades will add some sub­tle colour to a wardrobe of win­ter whites and blacks.

And the rest of the new Gre­gory collection is no slouch, ei­ther – loose-fit­ting trousers, boxy tops and flared skirts are just some of the high­lights from its el­e­gant yet laid­back range.
