Fresh Summer Feast

Fresh Summer Feast

A little bit before Christmas, Undone Girl Jordan Rondel and the amazing Eleanor Ozich (Petite Kitchen) got together and held a beautiful backyard banquet for just a few tables of very lucky guests. The menu was unsurprisingly fresh and fabulous, packed with health and happiness, but one of our favourite…

Rio Rio Red

Rio Rio Red

I can never decide whether I love or hate this time of year for all the round-ups and best-ofs… A lot can happen in a year, and this one, for me at least, has been a particularly wild rollercoaster ride. But right now I’m feeling both positive and reflective, and…

3.1 Phillip Lim Holiday Wishes

3.1 Phillip Lim Holiday Wishes

If anyone can bring the fishnet stocking back into acceptable fashion realms, Phillip Lim can… Same goes for wearing bubblegum pink with apple green… And too-long loose-fit tapered jeans… Aside from those small shocks, Lim’s Holiday 13/14 collection doesn’t disappoint, sports-luxe done right and all signatures given space – clean…

Summer Loving: Lucy Kemp

Summer Loving: Lucy Kemp

Undone asked the very lovely Lucy Kemp, designer behind sweet new label Pardon My French (four pretty, wearable collections so far, with a covetable dose of deconstructed leopard-print in each, love!), to tell us some of her favourite summery things. She also shared some beautiful photos of her mother’s heavenly garden…

Raw Super Skin Brownies

Raw Super Skin Brownies

I try to eat well and look after myself for a few different reasons – I’ll admit one of them is pure vanity. I look better when I’m taking care of myself. My skin is prettier and calmer and overall I look more “well” when I’ve been really listening to…

Undone Girl: Kelly Gibney

Undone Girl: Kelly Gibney

Meet our glowing Undone Girl Kelly and stay tuned for her beautifully delicious posts on Undone Journal… I’m Kelly – a serious food lover. I live in Auckland with my lovely partner and our charming 18-month-old daughter Bonnie. Most of my adult life has been spent working in – or running…

Track N Field

Track N Field

My full name is Marlene Eleonore Kafka. I was named after Marlene Dietrich. I was born in Mannheim, in Germany. When I was two years old my parents and I moved to Somersworth in the USA. My sister Sophie was born there in 2001. When I was almost five we…

Yin & Yang

Yin & Yang

Originally this shoot was going to be me photographing some radical still-life’s… I love still-life photography! But I decided it would be far more fun to get other people involved. I spend most days talking to flowers, so it’s nice having some clever people to bounce ideas off. I wanted…

Good Morning Tokyo

Good Morning Tokyo

While the Isabel Marant x H&M collection divided the fashion world (reactions from fever pitch to sneers of disdain and those, like me, and the wonderful Garance Dore, keeping the faith but a little bit on the fence), Left Bank’s reigning queen of cool moved quietly forward and released new…

Undone Girl: Lucy Houghton

Undone Girl: Lucy Houghton

Meet our floral-minded Undone Girl, Lucy, and stay tuned for her blooming beautiful posts on Undone Journal… I love flowers so much that I decided earlier in the year to try work with them full-time. It’s the perfect creative outlet for me. Since beginning Lu Diamond Flowers I’ve worked on…

Paisley Fields Forever: Exclusive Sneak Peek

Paisley Fields Forever: Exclusive Sneak Peek

I’ve been following the progress of Auckland newcomer Winter & Rixon with interest since their winter collection ‘The Mineral Series’ blew my mind a little bit with its beautiful, graphic prints, so Undone are pretty excited to be able to be the first to show you what they’ve done for…

Plaid Boards

Plaid Boards

Jayne Min and her blog Stop It Right Now are two of my favourite things to look at on the internet. SIRN first came into my consciousness via an image of a skateboard, perfectly skinned in one of those jewel-hued, slightly Moroccan/Turkish/something grid prints from that Celine collection. Jayne, who’s…

Danika

Danika

Shot exclusively for Undone on a very hot day, on the grounds of the historic Chelsea Sugar Factory, the only place to get out of the sun was this solitary cluster of cool green bamboo… Model: Danika at N Model Management | Photography: Adam Bryce | Assistant: Richard Symons |…

The Kinfolk Table

The Kinfolk Table

I’m not really a gushy type of girl, but after turning only the first few pages of The Kinfolk Table, I can tell you I was feeling like I wanted to gush about it. As well as that, I wanted to do a few other things simultaneously – turn more…

Favourite Things: Claire Hammon, Meadowlark

Favourite Things: Claire Hammon, Meadowlark

Claire Hammon is one half of the super talented duo that is Meadowlark. (The other half is her husband Greg Fromont.) She’s a major inspiration and has one of the best archives of, and eye for, striking imagery of anyone we know. She’s also involved in the creation of some…

High Rolla’s

High Rolla’s

There are a lot of denim brands out there. Many of them are ‘meh’, and some of them are genuinely great, but I personally find jeans one of the hardest things to shop for. I’m pretty particular, and right now I’m all about cut (the perfect high but not too…

Candycane Chocolate Cookies: The Caker

Candycane Chocolate Cookies: The Caker

This recipe was kindly lent to us by Undone Girl Jordan Rondel, aka The Caker, aka the biggest babe in baking. If you’re blessed to live in Auckland, you can purchase sweet little boxes of The Caker’s incredible festive cookies (candycane + dark chocolate, apricot, lemon, rosemary + pinenut shortbread…

Lorena Prain, Blonde As Ice

Lorena Prain, Blonde As Ice

We’re completely captivated by Spanish artist Lorena Prain’s quirky and distinctive beauty. I lifted Lorena’s natural locks to a headturning ice-white hue, before Laura snapped some candid shots outside Netil House’s signature photo booth. While we worked, Lorena chatted with us on art and modelling… “I’ve always loved working with…

A Ruby December

A Ruby December

We love everything about Ruby – from their chic, feminine designs to their sunny attitudes, their beautiful campaigns and creative ideas (anyone else hosting a summer bar with fresh flowers, cider and music in their stores on Friday nights?!), and we particularly love their latest presentation, the absolute prettiest capsule…

Undone Girl: Jordan Rondel

Undone Girl: Jordan Rondel

Meet our very sweet Undone Girl Jordan, the biggest babe in baking, and stay tuned for her truly scrumptious posts on Undone Journal… My love for baking started at an early age and stems from my French roots, my insane sweet tooth and a desire to please people with culinary delights….
