5 things we love this week: Celesté by Meadowlark, must-visit bricks and mortar & more

20 May 2021
By Hemma Vara

Each week the Fashion Quarterly team rounds up what to read, buy, see, shop, drink and eat.

1. by Natalie Autumn Winter 2021

Unwind without feeling undone in by Natalie’s latest made-in-New Zealand collection, centred around Tencel, a material produced using extracts from eucalyptus trees that is gentle on the skin. Blended with rayon for lightweight durability, by Natalie pieces are a dream for both sleeping and lounging.

We love that you can mix and match separates in multiple colourways, offered in sizes xs to xxl. 


2. Meadowlark Celesté

This season, Meadowlark designers looked to the skies for inspiration. 

The Celesté collection is named for the awe-inspiring ‘celestial bodies’; the sun and moon in the ‘visible heavens’.

All Meadowlark pieces are designed to be viewed as individual works of art that can be enjoyed and appreciated every day, not just for special occasions, and can be worn alone or in multiples.



3. Harris Tapper Auckland pop-up

Harris Tapper’s pop-up store opened this week at BLOC on Normanby Road in Mount Eden, and you can visit until 30 May.

Showcasing its latest collection, Foundation, the tailored and thoughtful pieces consist of the brand’s best-selling shapes, designed to last.

Perfect for integration in our personal and professional lives, we’ve come to love Harris Tapper for its uncomplicated elegance and sophistication.


4. Observations of a Wallflower by Lucy Houghton and Cam Neate

Next week Lucy Houghton of Lu Diamond Flowers and photographer Cam Neate are exhibiting collaborative art project Observations of a Wallflower at the Crystal Cylinder Gallery in New Plymouth. 

Pastel floral subjects are brought to life through a series of fly-on-the-wall observations, playing on the idea that perhaps the things we do not often pay much attention to are in fact, the most observant. 


5. Videris launches into Standard Issue's Newmarket Store

For the first time, a curated selection of Videris lingerie will launch into a brick and mortar store: Standard Issue in Newmarket.

Sharing the same values, Standard Issue and Videris hero comfort, the use of natural fibres, and the minimising of production waste.

The collaboration was born from Standard Issue’s search to find the perfect undergarments to be worn under its iconic sheer cotton and merino tulle styles, with Videris’ made-to-be-seen intimates the ideal partner.
