Labour Weekend Wishlist


Things I’d like for this long weekend:

 

New Zealand lifestyle brand Penney and Bennett have just added to their line of everyday-luxury Loungewear, with a freakin’ gorgeous collection of styles in two colours – a simple white or soft pink cotton. Simple silhouettes (always a yes from me) with very relaxed tailoring (because comfy is queen), and created by Penney and Bennett designer Sarah Carson to be able to cross over into the day (or, wear throughout the entire Labour Weekend) – wear to bed, wear around the house, wear as a layering piece over your togs. There are relaxed shorts and long pants (both with pockets!), long and short sleeve shirts, long sleep shirts that reach to your knees (see the blush pink one pictured above), smoking jackets, and long, loose robes.  I’m ordering myself a set of the soft pink (Rose) pocket pants and matching long sleeve shirt, because I work hard, dammit, and I deserve to feel lovely.

My all-time fave, Jardan, continue to expand beyond amazing furniture into considered homeware with their Spring 2019 collection. I love the confident shape of their new Ivy Oil Burner, and the chalky raku clay it’s handmade from.

~

Nail polish in tactile, minimalist packaging, in a tight selection of very-wearable modern colours. Yes please.
J Hannah Nail polishes from our pals at Paper Plane.

A vase for my weekend foraging – Nest have these great new speckled clay vases in modernist shapes – this one pictured is my fave, but they’d also look great grouped.

Channelling 90’s Princess Diana vibes with these Knot Hoops, from NZ jewellery brand Flash.
Also available from our lovely pals at Blackbird Goods.

LA-based New Zealand Emily L’Ami has been working on her Vibration range of 100% natural perfume oil for years.
So exciting to see this labour of passion come to life, with Bodha’s launch of three scents – Earth (made from fragrant roots, barks and mosses), Air (made from fragrant green leaves, twigs and rinds) and Plants (made from petals, leaves and golden resins). There is also a Bodha Vibration Sampler Box with a miniature sample of each of the three perfumes. Ordering immediately.

Rattan isn’t going anywhere in a hurry. Like the comeback of brass, it’s less a trend and more a resurgence. This Curved Rattan Buffet (made from natural teak with rattan panel inserts in the four doors) is gorgeous, nē?

~

But even better than that buffet is this just-launched coffee table from Jardan – Billie coffee table.
Low and perfectly square, in solid American Oak with rattan inserts. Yeeeeessss. They also have this coffee table in a longer rectangle shape, plus a side table and a bench seat.

Aesop have launched a 300 page book celebrating their international concept stores
and the Aesop ‘art history’ and aesthetics. Will purchase.
