Luxury emporium FARADAYS opened online today, with its brick and mortar residence at 8 Faraday Street, Parnell, set to open in November.
A romantic return to the luxury department store experience, FARADAYS offers a thoughtful curation of fashion, footwear, homeware, and fragrances, and is set to open an in-house bar boasting an array of fine wines and champagnes.
From Bordelle and Giuseppe Zanotti, to Hermetica and Givenchy, FARADAYS has also debuted the ‘By Faradays’ collection, heroing premium silk bedding crafted in the Jiangnan province in China—known as the birthplace of silk.
Excitingly, FARADAYS is the newest New Zealand stockist of prints by Dina Broadhurst, a Sydney artist known for her dramatic and covetable displays of desire and allure. To celebrate the launch, Broadhurst has created a series of imagery where she wears her favourite FARADAYS pieces.
Founder of FARADAYS, Constance Von Dadelszen, has a wealth of experience in the luxury sector. Von Dadelszen founded specialist vintage jewellery store Love and Object and is co-owner of luxury clothing brand Dadelszen.
Speaking exclusively to Fashion Quarterly about her latest venture, Von Dadelszen says, “I have always had a deep respect for the incredible legacy houses we all love and admire, like Givenchy, Loewe, Alaia, and La Perla. I travelled (in a past life..!) so frequently to Europe, sourcing vintage jewels and liaising with our own ateliers for Dadelszen, I also discovered the most beautiful brands, like Alexandre Vauthier in Paris, Bordelle, in the UK, and Stories of Italy, in Venice—and I fell instantly in love. It has been a desire of mine for many years to bring these respected designers, known and new to our local market, and I feel incredibly privileged sitting here today, to say that this dream is actually coming true.”
