WORDS BY Hemma Vara

1. Sweet Magnolia by Beach Knickers

With spring just around the corner, loved local brand Beach Knickers has debuted ‘Sweet Magnolia’, a collection of vintage-inspired prints and flowing threads to take you into the warmer months. 

The campaign looks are styled with treasured finds and past-season Beach Knickers, taking cues from a previous lifetime.

2. Wild Garden by Saben

Now more than ever, we’re looking to harness the calming influence nature has on the soul. This is precisely why we’re welcoming the launch of Wild Garden by Saben, which features vibrant hues and earthy neutrals in shades of alabaster, clay, ivy, orchid, and monarch. 

Shop the first drop of Wild Garden here. Drop II launches on Sunday 22 August at 10 am.


3. Ravenhue by Turet Knufermann

Renowned New Zealand fashion designer Turet Knuefermann has created Ravenhue, a capsule of classic wardrobe staples to be worn for any occasion and by any individual. Giving thought to pieces that transcend time, trends, and travel, Turet says, “Ravenhue pieces are meant to be a blank canvas that you can layer on to. They are dependable and sometimes unremarkable, but a stylish woman understands that not every piece is supposed to be remarkable. Some items are just supposed to be reliable.”

4. Superdose Sleep Infusion Masque by sans [ceuticals]

Anti-inflammatory skin care is making waves, and the new Superdose Sleep Infusion Masque by sans [ceuticals] has us intrigued. Ongoing low-grade skin inflammation can contribute to loss of structural resilience, and the mask has been formulated to counteract just this. 

Used as a luxurious overnight treatment, something we can certainly get behind, the Superdose Sleep Infusion Masque features powerful actives and 5 per cent vitamin B5 to soothe inflammation, boost hydration, and repair environmental damage at a cellular level.

5. Simone Gooch + Derek Henderson – Rosa

Florist Simone Gooch and photographer Derek Henderson’s first collaborative project, ‘Rosa’, takes the form of a book, exploring the loaded historical and aesthetic potentials of still life floral arrangements. 

The resulting portraiture is both elegant and unconventional, classic and contemporary—making for a spectacular and poetic book.
