Tomorrow Britomart is hosting the Britomart Progressive Lunch, a luxurious, lazy long lunch where guests move between the exquisite restaurant options available down in Auckland's Britomart precinct. 

taylor is launching the event with an exclusive fashion show, in partnership with Tyler St Garage. The show is now sold out, but to celebrate we're launching a LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION in our exclusive crush fabric, across all stores! 


This includes the stunning Amplitude Dress which has been featured in all our campaigns. We only have a very limited amount of this fabric so we'd recommend getting in quick so you don't miss out! There's also a beautiful button-down shirt, perfect to take you from work to evenings. And the Surface Sweater, a delicate silk pullover, is available in our season trademark colour tropez blue.  

Plus, come down to taylor Britomart on Friday afternoon and you might just see something special!

What to wear to a fashion show | Fashion For A Cure 2014

Posted on September 16, 2014 by Anya Merryfield

When we think of pink, we think of ripe full roses, sunsets, juicy pink grapefruit and dusty tones of faded corals. It is a colour that speaks of youth, frivolity and an intrinsic femininity all in one, and for many women its a colour of solidarity in the fight against cancer.

We are proud to support the work of Breast Cancer Research Trust and their Fashion For A Cure Shows which will be taking place in Wellington in October, and Christchurch in November. Here you can watch fashion shows by influential New Zealand fashion designers including our beautiful collection from taylor.

To buy tickets or find out more click here, whilst those already with tickets in hand may be wondering what exactly they should wear to the big event! We have put together three distinct looks harnessing the blush beauty of taylor mulberry, which is your favourite?

A Suit With Cute

A classic suit gets an update with elegantly tailored shorts and a flash of easy to wear pink. Pair with a heel for a chic, simple look or layer up with hosiery and a fun and functional flat for something all together more quirky.

Pale Meets Layers

The taylor mulberry gets a crisp, modern look with flashes of ivory. This striking look is made possible through the depth of our mulberry tone, which acts as a sleek, dark contrast against the creamy pale ivory.

Sweetly Simple

A look that never dates is a floaty silk piece with volume paired with a slimmer form fitting shape. In this case the Silk Sleeved Oblique brings a sense of feminine whimsy to the severe, slim line of our versatile Outcome Pant in flint.

How to wear: The Denominate Top

Posted on September 16, 2014 by Anya Merryfield

Effortlessly easy to wear and oh so beautiful, the Denominate Top is much loved for its ability to walk the line between formal and casual. Combining the luxurious feel of silk with inserts of feature fabric, this piece is easy to style in a number of ways…

Chic Day to Day - Pretty & Pale

We pair the soft flow of the Denominate with the tailored structure of the Peg Pant to weight the free flowing silhouette, the result is a soft, gentle and all-together modern look. The subdued pale colourway really lets us play with texture and form in this outfit, with a playful tie of round detailing with the earrings matched to the Reflect Jacket buttons.

Work Wear - Free & Easy

Play up the soft, ethereal feel of this silk piece by pairing the Denominate with the Emersion Jacket, a true play on flowing silk with flowing silk that is made possible through the introduction of knits and wool. To make this outfit really work, we have paired the texture, fun and drama on the upper half of the body with a slim, sleek form on the lower half.

Weekend - Glam Meets Comfort

A short gets a new lease of life when paired with a lacy knit, and a silky flowing top. Not a shorts kind of woman? Pair with your favourite denim instead. To make your silky draped Denominate Top oh-so more weekend friendly, pair it with heavier details, a chunky knit, a scarf or a statement necklace.

A Space For You : How to wear spacer rings

Posted on September 15, 2014 by Anya Merryfield

You just have to look at the work of designers like Noma Bar to really appreciate the joy that comes in an examination of the space ‘in between’. Negative space allows us to look at textures, tones and even colour in minute detail, feeling the exact space it takes up within a design.

2014 is the year of negative space in jewellery design, shirking the lustrous ornate designs of 2013 for a decidedly more subdued feeling.  An emphasis on the silhouette of shapes, graphic splashes of colour and impactful, yet simple gem use are all hallmarks of this years jewellery designs. Fewer things sum this up than the humble spacer ring.

Defined by its thin - subtle lines, the spacer ring frames the beauty of your dextrous digits, bringing the feeling of you wearing two fine rings. The perfect way to bring interest to a hand, the spacer ring is subtle, subdued and undoubtedly classic.
