Today Emma and I marched on down to the burgeoning Black Box Boutique to rummage through their brand new Britomart store. This is the third of the Auckland retailer’s outlets with stores already established in Grey Lynn and The Department Store in Takapuna. Alongside Britomart fashion pioneers Zambesi and Kate Sylvester, Black Box is a “destination Boutique” stocking a dastardly cool collection of clothes, shoes and accessories for men and women including the likes of Ksubi, Acne, Opening Ceremony and Stolen Girlfriends Club. With it’s moody aesthetic we could have guessed that Black box is founded by Daniel Gosling, co-founder of the highly successful Department Store and Stolen Girlfriends Club also here in Auckland. The stores get up is spacious, minimal and clean cut giving it an effortless edge, providing an ideal milieu for the entourage of brooding yet sophisticated attire. We ended up throwing a few outfits together which was an absolute delight. Check it out or shop for these styles online here, sale’s on now!! Photos and words by Tulip, model Emma xxx
