W&G SUMMER FASHION

Written by Margo Berryman

Elevating summer style and embracing glamour are this summer’s fashion themes at Wallace & Gibbs in Arrowtown.  

“There are so many winning combinations to choose from instore to refresh your look,” says W&G executive director Caroline Walak. “This season’s styles are fresh, floral and flirty with plenty of punchy colours, and prints alongside some lovely natural neutrals.” 

“The new coastal collection by Staple the Label has some stunning dresses in relaxed silhouettes and effortless separates including tailored shorts and drawstring pants. This label is fast becoming a favourite.”

“Loobies Story has turned up the volume on dresses and tops in multi-faceted colourways and prints – many with pretty ruffled details – and there are some big, beautiful glam options from Trelise Cooper.”

Summer sandals, slides and heels by leading New Zealand shoe designers Chaos & Harmony and Kathryn Wilson feature pretty pastels, gold, white and tan hues.

“We have a lovely selection of strappy heels to match any outfit along with classic Saben bags including clutches, minis and cross bodies to add that finishing glam.”

“In menswear we have high quality denim, chino’s, shirts, shorts, and smart casual sneakers that simplify the task of updating a guys look. Shirts by Dstrezzed are super summery and the Ben Sherman t-shirts are classics teamed with shorts or jeans by Garcia or No Excess.”
