the fall|winter 10 collection of alexandra owen coincided with the opening of the auckland boutique last thursday. as expected neither disappoints. the new location is as thoughtfully realized as the original wellington spot. i was lucky enough to get an up close look and the evening was a delight. fashionable hipsters, beautiful live music, drinks and of course the much anticipated collection made the evening memorable. i think the slight edgy youthfulness of the ponsonby local perfectly reflects the marriage of classicism and modernity which is the signature of alexandra owen.
the real dillema of course is not which location to visit [you must see them both!] but which of all the incredible pieces to buy??
