Rise of rib


Rib might be the elevated basic you’ve been looking for. Its textured effect makes any clothing item appear more elevated, whether worn layered or on its lonesome. Fabricated in natural fibres for softness and breathability, we’re romancing rib in all garments from singlets and tanks to midi dresses and skirts, long sleeve tees, wide leg pants and summer swimsuits.

Racewear style picks: The Crossing


The Crossing is the heart of fashion, beauty and retail in the Christchurch CBD, so Metropol asked those in the know what their style picks are for nailing Cup Week looks – and beyond.

 

Elise Dickson – Ruby Store Manager

 

 

“My pick for spring is anything from our Lucy floral print – they are perfect for all events from long lunches to spring weddings. The beautiful colours in the floral is enough to brighten any day.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Karina Collins – Dry and Tea Salon Manager

 

 

 

 

“The wedge heel from country road. So effortless and comfy. Can be worn with a little black dress, or casual with a linen short/skirt. The texture of the shoe is definitely what we are seeing this summer with hair…texture and shape, casual and cool.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anna Walsh – Coffee Culture Owner

 

 

 

“I’m loving the Trapeze dress from Witchery paired with white sneakers to make a cute day look. It also comes in bright pink for a fancier look! It’s the perfect dress for these warmer days.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roisin McCullough – Seed Heritage Store Manager

 

 

 

“I’m really excited to be wearing linen this summer. It’s a beautiful fabric to wear in the warm Christchurch weather and easy to style up or wear casually. There will be beautiful colours coming through in linen this season.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Caped Crusader


There is the saying that ‘not all heroes wear capes’ but maybe in this case, they can! Be the super mum, colleague, friend or partner that you are and make sure to dress the part because capes are making a comeback in fashion. Suit up, caped crusaders – we check how you can style these statement pieces.

 

WITCHERY | STRUCTURED CAPE

 

Little Red: Channel your inner fairy-tale fantasy by wearing a hooded cape. We’re not suggesting go all out and wear a maxi hooded cape in blood red, but instead maybe a subtle nod to the heroine of our favourite fable.

Cape X Blazer Crossbreed: Everyone loves a blazer; it’s a classic classy piece that has been a workplace staple since we can remember. Why not give the cape blazer a try? Give your outfit a bit of a flare… literally.

Dress ups: It’s sometimes easy to walk out of the door and forget to bring a jacket. Avoid that completely this winter by wearing a cape dress to work. Look as if you’ve just stepped off the runway and into the boardroom.

Snug as a bug: We also have the polar opposite option of wearing a blanket cape (we don’t mean – actually wrap a blanket over your shoulders). This piece will look great paired with some knee-high boots. Don’t sacrifice being warm for looking fabulous this season.
