Literary Style: The Dud Avocado

Literary Style: The Dud Avocado

‘The day my laundry came back, I took out all my clothes and spread them around the room for Judy and me to look at. I was determined that for once, just once in my life, when I went to those readings, I would be wearing the ‘right’ thing. The…

Origami Book Sculptures

Origami Book Sculptures

Calling this ‘origami’ is a little deceiving, as while these folded books look intricate, they are far easier to make than Japanese cranes. All you need is a couple of old secondhand books, and some time for folding. Perfect for an evening when you feel the need to achieve without…

Anna-Lise & Her Year Of Hair

Our ridiculously beautiful, lovely, sweet, smiley, styley friend Anna-Lise from Ruby has recently embarked on a rather huge but very exciting project with Tresemmé! The video below explains it best, but we can’t wait to see what the truly delightful Miss Sharma comes up with each day… x

Oscar Dresses

Oscar Dresses

There’s a certain kind of glamour and mood that only an Oscars night can provide, and perhaps the most fabulous way to take it all in is through the gowns and outfits selected by the biggest stars of each year. Digital agency MediaRun have done just that, creating this sweet…

K Road Sweetness

K Road Sweetness

As you may have seen on Instagram last night, Undone Girl Jordan’s delicious secret is out – she’s opening a very cool little store on the legendary K Road! Jordan’s promised to tell us more about it very soon, but in the meantime, here’s some of her next level homemade…

Take Me Home

Take Me Home

Really it was that thick, solid, humble-feeling ceramic crockery, lozenge-shaped plates, deep bowls, shallow or mini, big coffee cups or petite – in the absolute perfect wash of pale pink, yes, pale pink – that drew us in. And yes we bought a set or maybe two, and then went…

If I Could Change Your Mind

If I Could Change Your Mind

This is the brand new video by Haim. We love Haim (rhymes with ‘I am’ in case you were wondering, two syllables) and we really love how this video takes us back to our carefree school days, when we unashamedly danced all the time, by ourselves, in pairs or small…

La Vie En Rose

La Vie En Rose

We were lucky enough to attend Saturday night’s ultra glam L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards, have a peek backstage (see our Insta) and snatch a few quick minutes with Willis York‘s Rebecca Brent, the very cool winner of the big prize, the Supreme Award. As well as a very good industry…

Literary Style: Smilla’s Sense Of Snow

Literary Style: Smilla’s Sense Of Snow

“After breakfast I put on a long suede coat and the Jane Eberlein fur hat. The coat has deep inside pockets. Into them I put the last, folded clipping, a bundle of krone notes, Isaiah’s tape, and the letter to my father. Then I leave. The day has begun.” Peter…

No words for how much we’re loving Connie McDonald‘s inspirational little illustrated guides to life, drawn exclusively for Undone by the multi-talented 20-year-old… (She’s also making cute badges right now, eep!) Happy Thursday! x

State Of Undone

State Of Undone

It’s that time of the week when words like ‘deadline’, ‘time’, and the phrase “yes, no problem”, start to compete for importance with words like ‘release’, ‘simplicity’ and ‘just the necessity’. The need to uncoil after a long week starts when I arrives home: bag down, jeans off, hair out….

Elvira Hancock

Elvira Hancock

We love a good cinematic backstory, so had a little swoon about Moochi’s AW14 range, purportedly inspired by ‘lady tiger’ Elvira Hancock from the 1983 cult flick Scarface, played by an immaculate, ethereal, honey-dipped Michelle Pfeiffer. Refined to a cool edit of 18 separates, Moochi’s newest collection is a covetable…

Agyness Deyn: Title A

Agyness Deyn: Title A

Cool chameleon Agyness Deyn, former English superdoopermodel and the face of the late noughties (for a while there her face was splashed on literally every magazine cover and every major campaign) has seemingly been laying very low of late, possibly, and understandably, just taking a breather from the intensity of…

Homemade Raw Snickers Bars

Homemade Raw Snickers Bars

These extremely decadent, deliciously chewy, caramelly, nutty raw sweet treats were stumbled upon in my kitchen as a happy consequence of raw cheesecake unbaking gone wrong. I ended up with cashew butter instead of the filling I was attempting to make… but I’m not upset about this in the slightest…

Espresso Martini For Two

Espresso Martini For Two

Whether you’re celebrating with your lover, or another, there’s nothing quite like a stiff drink to end the week/kick off your weekend. I recently discovered espresso martinis made with Kokako cold brew at their cafe in Grey Lynn. They’re not on the menu unfortunately, but something that the team there…

Love By The Book

Books for lovers – lovers of life, lovers of cities, lovers of history, lovers of words. Who cares about your bed, make what’s on your bedside table count this Valentine’s. (We all know reading is sexy, anyway). Persuasion – Jane Austen There is no love story greater than this. Every…
