THE STYLE STRIP
Auckland’s full of cute neighbourhoods, but Ponsonby is the most charming – and chic. Dotted with cafes and fashion boutiques, you can make a beeline to local style icon KAREN WALKER’s own store at nearby Britomart. Her collection strikes the perfect balance between feminine and quirky, and her jewellery makes for a great souvenir. Another stop to add to your hit list is SUPERETTE, which is like a mini supermarket reimagined as a trendy fashion and homewares store. The one-stop shop caters to men, women and kids so you can kit out everyone with a bit of Kiwi cool.
