During our recent trip, Kokon to Zai was definitely one of our favourite shopping destinations - their stores in London and Paris are filled to bursting with some of the coolest labels around, and we feel pretty happy to share a few of the same labels such as Bernhard Willhelm, Daniel Palillo, Casette Playa and now, their own in-house brand KTZ. Worn by the likes of Rihanna, Lady Gaga (they recently ditched showing at London Fashion week in order to focus on the wardrobe for her latest tour) and regularly featured in international magazines like Italian Vogue, I-D, Dazed and Confused, KTZ is a big deal!!

It's fun, in your face, and we kinda want everything.... uh-oh!!

In-store now, and online soon!!

the new issue of fashion quarterly hit the news stands this week, and i don't know about you, but there are few things better than a leisurely brunch and a lingering flick through a new fq... in this new issue we were lucky enough to have one half of children of vision, vicky chan, featured as an example of a 'fashion maverick', talking about her personal style, and her fashion philosophies. there was also a mention of hot shoe label camilla skovgaard that we'll be stocking exclusively in new zealand from next season (due to drop in-store in july/august) pre-order here.

thanks fq!!
