1. The latest Mulberry drop at Scarpa
It won’t be too long until New Zealand gets its very own Mulberry – at Westfield Newmarket – but for now, you can get your hands on the coveted British brand at Scarpa.
If Christmas arm candy is top of your wish list, a new drop of the latest collection has just landed. We’ve got our eyes on the ‘Amberley‘ handbag. In a delicious chocolatey shade of brown, with eye-catching gold detailing and a curvaceous silhouette, this is an investment piece that we promise you’ll get years of wear out of.
2. The opening of Bulgari’s very first New Zealand boutique
If you’ve been counting down the days till the opening of Bulgari’s very first New Zealand boutique – you’re not alone; the Fashion Quarterly team has been right there with you. Make sure you pop in prior to Christmas to experience the Italian jewellery house’s breathtaking pieces and a one-of-a-kind Christmas activation.
Find out more about the opening of the boutique right here.
3. This delightful summer scent by Dolce & Gabbana
Fragrance should spark joy – and this citrusy little number from Dolce & Gabbana does just that. Aptly named Lemon, this scent smells just as good as it looks. A dash of spicy ginger oil and woody moss and vetiver essential oil give this one a point of difference and its staying power.
While the new Dolce & Gabbana Fruit collection – which also features vibrant Pineapple and sparkling Orange – will undoubtedly make the perfect gift for the fragrance lover in your life, we personally think these scents are too cute to part with.
4. Rachel Mataira at Daily Bread, Ponsonby
For those of you that missed photographer Rachel Mataira’s one-night-only exhibition, 2020 in Review, her body of work is now available to peruse over a coffee and croissant from Daily Bread at The Greenhouse, Ponsonby.
In acknowledgement of the year that has been, Mataira’s exhibition allows New Zealanders to reflect on the collective and personal challenges that we have all experienced, as well as showcasing just how far we’ve come.

4. Marle’s super-cute Gingham Story
While Marle is known for an easy-to-wear colour palette of predominantly soft neutral shades and timeless black, the homegrown fashion label has released a handful of summery signature styles in black-and-white gingham print.
As well as shorts and cute tops, the mini drop features the must-have dress of summer, Anouk, which means you’ll have to be quick if you want one to make it into your summer holiday suitcase.
