11 November 2021

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

1. Harris Tapper Resort 2022 'Liaison'

Inspired by the psychological thriller ‘La Piscine’, a film set on the Côte d’Azur in the summertime, Harris Tapper’s Resort 2022 ‘Liaison’ artfully balances strength and structure with softness and ease. 

The core themes of tension, desire, and sophistication in La Piscine are cleverly replicated throughout the collection in the form of relaxed tailoring, close fits, and sheer fabrics. 

View ‘Liaison’ at harristapper.com

2. Meadowlark x Superette 'Broken Heart' collection

The Broken Heart collection is centred around fractured heart halves which meet together, an ode to the enduring symbol of love. There’s a pair of delicate earrings, alongside necklaces and rings which can be purchased as a pair — an opportunity to create a lasting connection with a loved one, with each person wearing one half each. 

Shop the ‘Broken Heart’ collection at superette.co.nz from Monday 15 November. 

3. The launch of New Zealand beauty brand Tronque

Two years in the making, Tronque founder Tanné Snowden set out to create a high-performance beauty range free from hormone-disrupting ingredients after struggling with her reproductive health. 


Aiming to combat ‘neck-down neglect’, the powerfully formulated debut range can be used on both the face and body. Products include the ‘Rich as Croesus’ firming butter for renewing elasticity and revitalising dry skin, the ‘Soft Focus’ scar concentrate serum to increase cell turnover and trigger collagen regeneration, and the ‘Everyday Revelation’ exfoliating serum to resurface and refine the skin.

All packaging is recyclable, and refills are being introduced in 2022 to further the brand’s sustainable ethos. 

Discover Tronque’s powerful formulations at tronque.com and selected New Zealand stockists, including Simon James and Smith & Caughey’s. 

4. Specsavers 'ReWear' collection

Specsavers has debuted its most sustainable eyewear range yet, ‘ReWear’. In a bid to reduce waste, each frame is partially made from recycled and bio-based materials, including five discarded water bottles. The result is a high-quality and durable collection that doesn’t compromise on style. 

Available in a variety of timeless silhouettes, the glasses and sunglasses come in a range of tones inspired by the natural world, including soft greys, crystal blues, and warm browns.

5. Ecoya x In The Roundhouse collaboration

ECOYA has partnered with boutique Australian dinnerware brand In The Roundhouse to produce a beautiful offering of four sophisticated dining plates. 

The monochromatic and modern plates are paired perfectly with the recently relaunched ECOYA ‘Celebration’ candle collection for a memorable table setting fit for dinner parties, special occasions, and festive gatherings. 

Get your dinner table party-ready by shopping the limited-edition collection at ecoya.co.nz
