Today, four premium fashion brands are opening their doors for the first time in New Zealand at Westfield Newmarket’s luxury precinct—Balenciaga, Burberry, Michael Kors, and Moncler.
Joining David Jones, Mulberry and Saint Laurent in the precinct, the new stores signal a growing appetite among New Zealanders for international luxury brands. Parnell emporium FARADAYS is also opening its doors on Thursday 11 November, stocking an impressive line-up of brands which include Christian Louboutin, Bordelle, Giuseppe Zanotti, and Givenchy.
Operating a ‘one in, one out’ policy to ensure customers’ safety, the new Burberry store showcases the latest collections for men and women, including styles from the Autumn/Winter 2021 runway and the house’s heritage trench coats. Excitingly, the store offers several exclusive products, including the iconic ‘TB’ and ‘Pocket’ bags in a deep maroon colourway.
The Burberry store reflects the house’s global design concept, designed in collaboration with renowned architect Vinzcenzo De Cotiis. The core colours of the Burberry check—beige, black, white and red are explored and developed throughout the store. The iconic pattern is also replicated on the ceiling through lighting.
And there’s more to come for the luxury precinct—today, Westfield Newmarket announced Coach as its latest signing, along with Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, Partridge Jewellers, and Jimmy Choo.
Today is indeed a wonderful day for luxury fashion, as well as a welcome return to retail openings for the Auckland region. So, without ado, happy shopping!
