The Hot List
Look no further than our edit of the top 10 ideas to love, objects to desire and everything in between
1 THE PRINTS… Slim Aarons’ photographs capture the glamour of the 50s and 60s jet set, or, as he reportedly described it, “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places”. His fabulous prints (from $820 unframed) are available from Matakana homeware store Green with Envy, including scenes from a poolside party in Palm Springs to sunbathers and parasols in Positano. 2 THE DESIGNER… Go, Kiwi! New York-based New Zealander Claudia Li made headlines with her New York Fashion Week show featuring an all-Asian cast. The Chinese designer, who was named in Forbes’ annual “30 Under 30” list last year, was inspired by Mount Cook lilies.
3 THE GOOD BUY… If in doubt, get it in black. ecostore’s vanilla and coconut hand and body washes are being packaged in chic black bottles for a limited time, made from recyclable, sustainable sugarcane plastic. For each bottle sold, ecostore will give 20 cents to the charity Sustainable Coastlines. From $5.50. 4 THE TIPPLE… Your search for the perfect summer sav is over. The 2018 Harwood Hall Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc will be your go-to drop this season. Named as a Top 50 Gold Medal wine in the New World Wine Awards 2018, Harwood Hall winemakers Digger Hennessy and Corey Hall have produced a wine with that crisp, dry finish we love, at an affordable price. Available through 135 New World stores nationwide.
THE COLLAB… If you like your fashion loud, look for the fun upcoming collaboration from Moschino and H&M. Featuring 90s-inspired prints – including Disney cartoons and MTV prints – and kitsch accessories (like this teddy-bear phone case, $70), the collection will
be available in H&M’s Auckland Commercial Bay store from November 8. There’s a leash and sweaters
for dogs, too.
THE SHOW… Fresh from her best comedy show win at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival,
Rose Matafeo is lending her talents to Auckland’s Basement Theatre’s annual Christmas show. Riffing on the idea of the office party, Rose has written this year’s play, Work Do, with friend Alice Snedden. From November 29
