Wildflowers: Part Two

Wildflowers: Part Two

On approaching Aimee of Hope & Organic to see if we could use some of her wonderful photos for our initial post on wildflowers, we discovered an equal love of wild flowers and wild nature, and knew we had to have Aimee tell her own story as well… I fell in love…

Happy 11th Birthday Miss Crabb!

Happy 11th Birthday Miss Crabb!

Owning a piece of Miss Crabb has been a rite of passage for many a Kiwi girl, and many special occasions have been celebrated draped in a silky little Miss Crabb number. Miss Crabb designs blaze their own trail, moving outside trends, driven instead by fabrications and the female form….

Undone Go-Sees: Zoe

While we love showcasing our beautiful local models in Undone editorials, we’re really excited to launch this new series of ‘Undone Go-Sees’ that shows off the individuality, personality, character and natural beauty the girls don’t always get to express in their work. We’re asking each girl to tell us a little…

Undone Zodiac: Leo

Undone Zodiac: Leo

Leo 23 July – 21 August Leo is a fixed, masculine, fire sign ruled by the sun, and just like the astral body that governs them, natives of this sign have a tendency to assume that the world revolves around them. Suitably labelled the ‘king of the zodiac’, the strength…

Karma Camellias

Karma Camellias

At this time of year camellias are in full force. I have a soft spot for their ruffled petals and delicate scent – if only their vase life was as impressive as their looks! They are romantic ice cream scoops of loveliness! Camellias begin to bruise and brown within minutes…

New Girls On The Block: Harman Grubisa

New Girls On The Block: Harman Grubisa

These days it’s a less than frequent occurrence that an emerging fashion label, no matter how special or significant, is able to open or sees the value in a physical store, so with the opening of a ‘bricks and mortar’ by Harman Grubisa (Madeleine Harman and Jessica Grubisa) we went behind…

July Mix Tape: Small Things

July Mix Tape: Small Things

The European summer is young, and amid polar blasts and 40 denier tights you’re wishing you were anywhere but here. The challenge to stay zesty and creative while daily grinding for a cause not necessarily your own is constant and weighs heavy on that spirit you swear you once had….

Wildflowers: Part One

Wildflowers: Part One

I was recently very lucky to attend a special afternoon workshop run by Matt and Lentil Purbrick of Grown & Gathered and hosted by Little Bird at Grey Lynn’s Kelmarna City Farm. If you’re not familiar with Matt and Lentil, honestly, get familiar, as these two cuties are amongst the most…

Obsession Du Jour

Obsession Du Jour

I grew up surrounded by a carefully considered, cultivated native garden where birds were encouraged to live and linger, not just through an abundance of delicious or delightful-to-birds trees and plants, but also through the bird feeders my mother hung high in the trees. Hers were handmade and more function over…

The Books Of Wes Anderson

The Books Of Wes Anderson

Too good not to share, some wonderful selfless human with a bit of time on their hands has put together a suitably delightful little film featuring the many, many books from Wes Anderson films, from our old favourite The Royal Tenenbaums through to The Grand Budapest Hotel and all the…

Two of our most treasured local ladies have put their beautiful heads together and come up with a workshop that you will be very sad if you miss. Gem Adams of Blackbird and our very own Undone Girl Alice Lines of homestyle have come up with a workshop that promises a) to be…

Cubism & Cushions

Cubism & Cushions

When one of our favourite New Zealand designers creates something inspired by one of our favourite New Zealand artists, we want a) to own it and b) to know more. So when Juliette Hogan released a new limited-edition silk cushion this week inspired by the artwork of Colin McCahon, we…

Undone Beauty: Skin Food

Undone Beauty: Skin Food

Did you know that peanuts and peanut butter are incredibly congesting to the skin? If your skin has a tendency to congest, the saturated fats in this legume will cause your sebum to thicken and block your pores, resulting in bumps and breakouts. Try almond butter (a wonderful source of…

Undone Zodiac: Cancer

Undone Zodiac: Cancer

Cancer 22 June – 22 July Cancer is a cardinal, feminine, water sign ruled by the moon. As the moon changes its position in astrological terms far more frequently than any other heavenly body, Cancers often feel like they’ve experienced a whole year’s emotions, the most extreme highs and lows,…

Undone Book Club #4

Undone Book Club #4

I’ve done a bit of a turnaround on the book for the coming month. I had something else in mind, but the book I’ve ended up choosing, How To Be Both by Ali Smith was on my shortlist for an earlier Undone Book Club (it was released in late 2014)…

Take Us To The Tropics

Take Us To The Tropics

Winter is okay… but summer is better! So I like to pretend it’s always summer. Recently I relocated to the northern beaches so I can fit in more beach time, fresh air, green scenery and most importantly be close to the dreamy blue sea. This makes me the happiest floral…
