Deadly Ponies Release Painterly Capsule Collection

To celebrate the innovative talents of iconic New Zealand artist Len Lye and the opening of New Plymouth’s Len Lye Centre, Deadly Ponies has created a vibrant capsule collection.

The Deadly Ponies team worked closely with the Len Lye Foundation and the New Zealand Film Archive to capture the magic, delight and seduction of Lye’s film in a series of accessories. Using film stills from ‘Rainbow Dance’ and ‘Trade Tattoo’ Deadly Ponies Creative Director Liam Bowden has developed a series of bags, wallets and scarves with visually arresting prints and colours.

The collection is available in-store and online now.


Kapiti Teams up With NZ Designers

To celebrate the launch of their new Whipped Sorbet, Kapiti have teamed up with three designers to create installations that bring the sorbet flavours to life. Juliette Hogan, Saben designer Roanne Jacobson and Collected by LeeAnn Yare trawled design stores, art galleries, florists, perfumeries, home furnishings, antiques, lighting stores and of course their own collections to curate an installation of 10 amazing things inspired by their assigned flavour.

Each location also has a freezer full of their designated flavour, so you can head along to the in-store installations to sample the guilt-free sorbet – they’re dairy and gluten free with no more than 85 calories per stick. And if you love what you see and taste, you’ll be able to take a guess at the tasting notes to go in the draw to win the entire curated collection.

The installations are on display until Sunday 8 November at the following locations: Juliette Hogan Britomart, the Saben section of Tessuti, Jervois Road, Herne Bay, and Collected by LeeAnn Yare at Bloc, Mt Eden.
