“Being the only female in what was basically a boys’ club must have been difficult for her. Miraculously, she didn’t compensate by becoming hard or quarrelsome. She was still a girl, a slight lovely girl who lay in bed and ate chocolates, a girl whose hair smelled like hyacinth and whose scarves fluttered jauntily in the breeze. But strange and marvelous as she was, a wisp of silk in a forest of black wool, she was not the fragile creature one would have her seem.” - Donna Tartt, The Secret History, 1992.

“For if the modern mind is whimsical and discursive, the classical mind is narrow, unhesitating, relentless. It is not a quality of intelligence that one encounters frequently these days. But though I can digress with the best of them, I am nothing in my soul if not obsessive.” The inspirational Donna Tartt’s tome, The Secret History, published in 1992, is the foundation upon which Kate Sylvester’s AW 15 collection ‘Tarrt’ has been built. In store and online in the New Year.

Not far from the Golden Gate bridge, in the hills of Point Reyes in Marin County you can stand and gaze far out into the ocean, down toward New Zealand perhaps. The Pacific Ocean in those parts really is an endless ocean of blue and Levi’s have captured that Californian moment perfectly with this embroidered version of the timeless Trucker jacket, which has been revamped with an oversized boyfriend silhouette in Spring Blue.

The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is almost certainly the world’s most iconic bridge. Its construction began in 1933 when conditions were by today’s standards, pretty basic. By the time the bridge opened in 1937, 11 construction workers had lost their lives. That total could have been much higher were it not for the installation of safety nets. 19 men were saved when they fell into these nets and these men became members of the “Halfway To Hell Club.” The H1 15 Levi’s Skateboarding collection is dedicated to these men and reflected in strong denim and an architectural stitch.

Kay Goss, head designer at Goss has always been drawn to lingerie and its ability to create allure. This attraction clearly also applies to lace, in itself a sensuous fabric which ‘reveals but equally conceals the elegance of a woman’. So it is with this dress in Guipure lace and sheer mesh, worn with a Goss slip. Available now from the Goss online store and at The Shelter in Ponsonby.

It may have originally been the domain of cowboys, miners and Jethro types but in a modern fashion sense the Denim Jacket or DJ has long been a symbol of the outsider, a bedmate to youth and rebellion, motorcycle gangs and hoodlums. Yet, as good as Djordje Petkovic (interestingly, nicknamed DJ) would look in Rebel Without a Cause, The Hellcats or Angels From Hell he’d look fine in this Wrangler Massacre Blue denim jacket in pretty much any film really. Made from a broken twill rigid denim the DJ features washed back indigo, has light brushing affects and an authentic thread story.

New Auckland label Isaac+Lulu is next generation, literally. That’s because Isaac and Lulu are the real life children of label partners Toni Sills and Ange Todd respectively. As designer of the label Todd says the children “represent the DNA of the brand.” Growing up among the patterns and madness of the brand’s establishment, their big personalities made them the obvious choice for the name of the brand. Isaac is an “articulate young man, a real performer” and Lulu a “gorgeous little lady, and a total tomboy!” The juxaposition between the two kids and their pesonalities has led to a mantra where the label favours style over fashion and clashes lady luxe with urban tomboy. There is fashion in the blood for the label partners themselves with designer Ange coming from a family of tailors and costume designers and Toni the daughter of fashion designer Caroline Sills, a relationship which sees the HQ for Isaac+Lulu in the same seaside building in Devonport as the other Sills labels and of course, Kathryn Wilson, the respected New Zealand shoe designer. It is an important relationship for Todd: 44

“I’m surrounded by a depth of talent and inspiration within the whitewashed seaside offices that we share with Caroline Sills and Kathryn Wilson. We’re lucky to have Caroline, an absolute matriarch of the industry and all round incredible woman – a force of style in her Dries Van Noten and Margiela - as a mentor she provides us with a creative environment that nurtures the best in us, and she doesn’t mince words if it isn’t!” This sense of dynamism pervades the workroom and it’s clear the girls feed off each other and stimulate creativity along with Rebecca Garcia Huston. “Toni is Caroline’s eldest daughter, she is larger than life. Toni doesn’t do bad days, she moves and talks 100 miles an hour and takes care of sales, she is a human upper! Rebecca is our graphics and online geek, she has a je ne sais quoi, I think it is inherent in her, but also has something to do with marrying a Frenchman and having formative years in France, I enjoy collaborating with her on graphics and marketing material.” Isaac+Lulu is a label that is looking to embrace the unexpected, a label that thinks that everything is right

when it’s left a little bit imperfect and a label that is open to a ‘clash’; checks with florals, colour blocking, tailored with trainers, preppy leatherette, merino track pants with pointed heels, messy hair with perfect nails. They are also not afraid to embrace a great team to shoot their looks, in this case Karen Inderbitzen-Waller, Delphine Avril Planqueel and Stefan Knight to shoot Amberly Colby. The label launches officially in late February with its own store in Herne Bay but will be available online at www.isaac-and-lulu. com a little earlier. Says Todd: “ISAAC + LULU was created by us and for us, for our friends and for people like us. We love, value and are serious about: being considered, accessible and unexpected, it works with our lifestyles and it makes us feel individual, we call it…elegant indifference.” Photography and styling: Karen InderbitzenWaller and Delphine Avril Planqueel Hair & make-up: Stefan Knight using O&M and M.A.C Cosmetics Model: Amberley at Red 11 wears Isaac+Lulu

In the process of curating and editing The Hand of Fashion in support of the ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative we have been opened up to a world of fashion which is more than just an ethically responsible movement but a world of artisans and new designers from Africa, bringing a new world of design, fabric and artisanal processes like weaving, screen-printing and dyeing. Here in Aotearoa, Workshop Denim founder Chris Cherry has long been a fan of investigating alternative fabrics and trying new denim treatments and processes for his brand. One of our favourite local stories this year, Workshop Denim’s Hand Dyed Natural Indigo collection was created in partnership with a traditional dyeing facility in a small artisanal village outside of Shanghai. The process using only natural plant indigo and other vegetable dyes has not been modified or altered by new technologies; each essential step remains the same.

One of the great joys we encounter whilst creating Black Magazine is working with new models, the bright young kids. Teaming with photographers Infamous Duo Black fashion director Rachael Churchward cast and shot nine fresh new Auckland faces: “kids with personality�. We asked our resident poet/writer Michael Whittaker (who entered the modelling world himself, aged just 16) to pen a poem about those first steps into the fashion world: A poem for new faces When you thought that no one made you. When your lips became kisses. When your body and your heart became uneasy confederates. When your heart grew fingers, grabbing at strangers. When your face was learning to write. When you waited. When you were a kite. When you started to realise how little and how much power you had. Michael Whittaker, 2014

Blair Wheeler stood out at this year’s Whitecliffe College of Art and Design show, his collection included crushable leather, rubberised denim, cement and liquid vinyl pressed items . This is forward-thinking from a designer who has had an interest in the subversive side of fashion since he was in school. For his 4th year end-of-year show Blair worked with Ngahuia Williams at Red 11 to cast models who were suitably fresh-faced and eclectic for the collection. A soulful hip hop soundtrack replete with live beatboxer set the scene and ‘BW 36.174’ (Auckland, NZ’s longitude and latitude) was born Grant Fell learns of his love of street culture, his influences and an impending meeting, perhaps, with Boris Bidajn Saberi. Photos: Damien Van der Vlist Grant Fell: How old were you when you first realised that you wanted to be a fashion designer? Blair Wheeler: I was year 12 in high school when I really knew I wanted to pursue a career in Fashion Design. My art teacher in high school really pushed me and it soon became clear that I was interested in the subversive side of fashion. What were the key things that you learned whilst studying at Whitecliffe? I believe the most important thing I learned was to collaborate and be open to opportunities that occur. I was a stubborn young designer a few years ago and I believe I learnt to become a lot more open minded and learnt to listen. What is the name of your collection this year? BW 36.174, meaning the longitude and latitude of Auckland, New Zealand in correlation to the rest of the world. Talk us through your inspirations for the collection. My collection’s ethos is the practice of applying organic and inorganic materials to fabric as an approach to fabric experimentation. My collection was heavily influenced by hip hop and skate culture. How would you describe the collection? Work in progress, but totally swag and unique. What are the key pieces, do you have a favourite? Every piece is unique but I particularly love the crushable leather that was developed in

my studio earlier this year; along with the cement and liquid vinyl pressed pieces. If you could nominate a song that represents the collection, what would it be? There are a few, too many to say. But artist-wise, definitely Sean Leon, his approach to urban rap and hip hop is super cool. You have collaborated with Zora Bell Boyd, the jeweller, tell us about that relationship. I have been a big fan of Zora and her work for many years and it wasn’t until earlier this year I had the balls to approach Zora and see if she would be interested in collaborating with me in creating a small range that would tell my story about my collection. And she agreed. At first I thought she was nuts but I soon discovered that I was also nuts, haha. We both get along super well and it was an incredible experience to be a part of an incredible collaboration. All the jewellery is currently being sold in Wunderkrammer on Ponsonby Road. Your fourth year show this year for Whitecliffes was great. Tell us about the casting of models, the use of the beatboxer, the general street culture vibe . I worked with Ngahuia from Red 11 sourcing some young, fresh new faces. I had one particular brief for my models which was being able to adapt a ‘Swag’ walk, with attitude and aggression. The beatboxer who performed live during my

show is King Homeboy. He is a world class beat boxer and I found him in the streets of downtown Auckland at 3am, busking for money. I wanted to have a unique dimension to my show, something which would suggest to the audience a sense of a real street, skate and hip hop culture. Who is your favourite designer and why? Boris Bidajn Saberi – to me is the pioneer of the current menswear avant-garde scene. A designer whom I see myself working for in the near future.What was your last dream about? I meet Boris. Aside from Zora, do you have other creative partners? Anyone who has been a huge help in your design career so far? Fashion Designer Adrienne Winkelmann my current mentor and practically my 2nd mother has been the biggest help to my career. She has aided me through all my years of study and continually helps to educate me in the industry. She keeps it real and to me is the epitome of the word success. What is the most important thing in your wardrobeW? My Black CCP Drips. What is next for Blair Wheeler, how do you intend to take this year’s great work to another level? All I can say is watch this space.

He entered our lives as Boy in Taika Waititi’s wonderful film of the same name in 2010. The film has gone on to sit amongst the pantheon of great New Zealand film as one of our most loved stories of all time. Despite being plucked from Opotoki Primary School three days before shooting began, James Rolleston delivered a stellar performance. In the ensuing four years not much has changed. As Mana in James Napier Robertson’s equally superb The Dark Horse, Rolleston has just won the Best Supporting Actor gong at the New Zealand Film Awards. But wait, there’s more: he has also starred as Hongi in another great New Zealand movie this year, Toa Fraser’s The Dead Lands. The world would appear to be his oyster but Grant Fell gets the feeling he is more likely to be interested in the rock oysters to be found in Ohiwa harbour than ambitiously shucking his way around Hollywood on the treadmill to stardom. Without a doubt, though, this Boy fom Opotiki is definitely on his way. Photos: David K Shields. Styling: David K Shields and Kiri Nathan. Photo assist: Levi Clarke James wears: Zambesi Man


Singlet by Ann Demeulemeester at Wunderkammer


Grant Fell: Your breakthrough film, Taika Waititi’s Boy was released in 2010 but you were younger during filming. How did it feel to be cast so young in your first role? Do you remember the casting? James Rolleston: When I was first cast on Boy I was about 10 years old and still attending Opotiki Primary School. It was a huge shock to me when I was cast for the film three days before shooting began. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Did you learn any sort of acting skills, like say from someone in your whanau before shooting, or did you go in cold? Before shooting Boy I had no acting experience or had any coaching/training so it was a huge challenge for me to do this as it was something so different and something I knew nothing about. What can you remember about the first day on set shooting Boy? On my first day of shooting I remember looking around and seeing so much fun food and just scoffing my face with fruit and lollies, I was absolutely loving it. I also remember stepping into the make-up and wardrobe bus and being so amazed at everything, it felt like my whole life was changing already. What were the most important things you learnt about acting in that first movie? The most important thing I learnt (shooting ‘Boy’) is probably that you have to have a lot of patience because I’m telling you now there is a lot of waiting around and eating food in between shots. Eating the food I didn’t mind. You are proud, very proud to come from Opotiki, a beautiful town in the Bay of Plenty region of Aotearoa’s North Island. Someone arrives in town that you have perhaps worked with on a film overseas and asks you to take them around town. Where would be the first 3 places you would take them? I would take them to one of the local beaches that are a couple of minutes drive from town then through the Waioeka Gorge - just to check a few swim spots. What’s the best thing about acting? Best thing about acting is meeting everyone and making so many

good friends and also travelling around the world. What’s the worst thing about acting? The worst thing would be the waiting around! You like to go hunting with your mates, what sort of hunting do you do? Yeah, I do quite a bit of hunting back home. We hunt deer and pigs. I’m guessing you like to fish as well? Rocks, boat, wharf or beach? Yeah, I love going fishing. I do a bit off the boat but occasionally off rocks and the beach. Tell us one key thing you learnt from your time working with Taika Waititi (director of Boy)? I learnt that Taika is something else. Nah, he’s the man! Funny as to work with. What about working with Cliff Curtis (The lead actor in The Dark Horse, who won Best Actor at the NZ Film Awards)? I learnt that Cliff is a hard-out method actor. Just being around him, it helped heaps with my performance. What has been the most challenging moment you have experienced when filming any of your films? The most challenging moments would probably just be trying to get into the zone in one of the heavier scenes such as the monument scene in ‘The Dark Horse’. What is your favourite film? One of my favourite films ever is ‘Lone Survivor’. A famous film director asks you to take the lead role in the film of your dreams. Who is the director and what is the film about? Possibly Mel Gibson and a movie about war, something like Lone Survivor or an ancient Greek war film or I’d love to do a comedy of some sort. Do you watch TV much or do you prefer to go and watch films? I watch TV every now and the same with films. What’s your all time favourite food? I love roasts or a good hangi. Your perfect car? I’m pretty keen on a grunty truck maybe a Hilux or ranger or something. The world needs more of? The world needs more peace. The world needs less of? The world needs less violence and to break the gap between rich rich people and people in poverty stricken areas.

“THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I LEARNT (SHOOTING ‘BOY’) IS PROBABLY THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE A LOT OF PATIENCE BECAUSE I’M TELLING YOU NOW THERE IS A LOT OF WAITING AROUND AND EATING FOOD IN BETWEEN SHOTS. EATING THE FOOD I DIDN’T MIND”
