As the main fashion capitals are showcasing their Spring/Summer 2013, New Zealand’s season calls for the showcase of their Fall/Winter 2014 collection. We picked our favorites from this Kiwi wonderland.

 

 

Andrea Moore

 

Her Fall/Winter 2014 was inspired by a “Scandinavian tale of snow, moose hunts, swans and yachts.” Moore, noted as one of the stalwarts of the New Zealand style scene, established herself as one who fearlessly uses colour, flirts with angles and delves into the world of impeccable tailoring and fit.  Even though she uses one-off prints and fabrics collected from all over the world, Moore is determined to continue to celebrate her home country and bring its fashion on a global platform. Moore’s designs are currently spotted by the savvy style-hunters in  tony boutiques throughout New Zealand and abroad including the iconic shopping haven,The Grove in Los Angeles.

Stolen Girlfriends Club

 

Founded in 2005 by three creative “kiwis” Marc Moore, Dan Gosling and Luke Harwood, Stolen Girlfriends Club became the newest fashion players in the New Zealand fashion scene. With no formal training between the three of the founders, the label prides itself on exhibiting “fiercely individual style.” Mixing punk, goth and a healthy dose of some serious rock ‘n’ roll vibe,  the Fall/Winter 2014 collection gives you a reason to rebel yell.

Adrienne Whitewood (Rongowhakaata)

 

Named the overall winner in 2011, Whitewood is a graduate of AUT, Whitewood is inspired by Maori art and culture with her mantra being wearable clothing for those who want an “emotional connection” to what they wear. An interesting combination of stunning silhouettes, re-inventing traditional concepts and turning them on their heads. Her love for Maori art, history and Tikanga and is also inspired by her hometown of Rotorua. Where Whitewood is putting her building blocks into place towards opening her own store.

Hailwood

 

 

Established in 2001, by designer Adrian Hailwood, this self-titled label started off as the perfect platform for this illustrator to showcase his unique designs on a line of super cool t-shirts. Now, Hailwood has expanded into unique peices  perfect pieces for day and evening, for work and play. Celebrities who adore Hailwood include Tilda Swinton and Miranda Kerr which fits into to Hailwood’s fashion philosophy of dressing someone who know how to make it work regardless of surroundings. This season is a fabulous mix of textures and silhouettes including billowing blouses, gorgeous eveningwear and urban-esque ensembles which completes his overall Fall/Winter 2014 storyboard.
