The best designer clothing is supremely comfortable, toasty, and addictive. Ditto with accessories. This describes the wares at TAD. Even the wallets, key-rings and cuffs here have feel-good factor.
For real feather handbags sharing display space with fine sterling silver necklaces, cuddly merino ponchos and wholly desirable LTB denim and Black Orchid jeans, the TAD stores at either Pegasus, North Canterbury or Northlands, Papanui are great destinations.
TAD is actually a bit of a fashion-blogger’s paradise. That’s because cool pieces to coordinate co-exist here. The result? That ‘I just pulled on the clothes hanging over the end of my bed’ look, when you want the appearance of effortless. It’s non-matchy-matchy; authenticity plus attitude.
Even hats here are knubbly knits or that rarely found style essential; the felted, 100 percent woollen panama. And extra fashion points apply for this appearing in navy as well as ubiquitous black.
TAD offers delectable fluffy slide-slippers. There’s comfort mixed with IT-girl nonchalance and enough practicality to justify their purchase. “We buy and stock highly wearable clothes,” co-owner Tracey says.
TAD’s tactile, sensuous stock has labels like Ivy Blu, Naudic, Ministry of Style, Nyx & Min, Mooi, and Silk & Steel amongst many more.
Located in Pegasus Town, TAD Design’s striking concept store is worthy to be snapped by any Instagram user as it brings together fashion and beauty services in an inviting, relaxing and serene environment.
So far in its mere two-year existence, owners Tracey and Daniel have also opened TAD fashion in Northlands Mall, along with an online store which has drawn a devoted clientele.
“The Pegasus store is a haven where people can come and leave their troubles at the door,” Tracey says.
“Come into a space full of unique pieces from around the world or pamper yourself in the hair salon and beauty room.”
If you can peel your eyes away from the luxurious array of fashion labels which include Mooi, Ministry of Style, One Teaspoon and Stella & Gemma, the store spans to a hidden hair salon and cosy beauty room where you will find hairdresser, Maddie and beautician, Emma.
Emma is the latest member of the TAD team and would like to offer clients a facial special – The Signature Facelift.
“It helps with hydration, as in winter our skin becomes drier. Vitamin C also helps with collagen production, which helps slow down the signs of aging. This facial is a great way to maintain and replenish your skin, whilst taking some time out for yourself.”
TAD Design in Pegasus Town is offering this facial special for $70 (usually $120) until the end of April, 2018. To make a booking, phone 0800 823 337. Follow TADpegasus on Facebook
