FASHION + STYLE ‘ONE’ - INSTALLATION OF BEAUTIFUL, SIMPLE THINGS ALMOST NEXT DOOR TO ADRIAN HAILWOOD ON THE PONSONBY END OF Karangahape Road you’ll find Scrap Wall’s temple to beautiful New Zealand art, design and clothing. Opened in April this year, ‘One’ is a constantly evolving space where everything is for sale. A Fine Arts graduate who studied at Elam, in Sydney and in Milan, Scrap chose his site because he believes context is key. “It was most important that it was close to Ponsonby Road - it’s definitely the hub - while still being a little off the beaten track. The shop is surrounded by galleries, which is ideal. When people come in for a look, they consider things a little more than they would in a traditional retail environment.”

RAMPALL LATOUR AAT WORLDB WORLDBEAUTY B BEAUTY WORLDBEAUTY IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE ARRIVAL OF RAMPAL LATOUR shampoo, produced with organic honey and perfumed with 11 essential oils. Your hair will be hydrated and delicately perfumed thanks to a combination of vegetable oils that we select and the unique perfumes developed to honour Provence. Heir to a savoir-faire handed down over five genertaions, the Rampal soap factory continues to produce soap in an entirely traditional way from their factory in Provence, France. The factory was founded in 1828 by Pierre Rampal, a master soap maker at the Court-de-Payen. Across history, Rampal Latour has been applauded for its quality and beauty including winning a coveted gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. The soaps are natural, completely vegetable, biodegradable and contain no preservatives (EDTA) or artificial colouring. Your hair will be hydrated and delicately perfumed thanks to a combination of vegetable oils that we select and the unique perfumes developed to honour Provence. www.worldbrand.co.nz PN

The World Belongs to the Dissatisfied

Scrap sees his business as a platform for interesting and expanding independents like himself, where he can represent work that has substance, with enthusiasm. “There is nothing NEW for sale in my shop that I don’t absolutely love and know the full story about,” he says. One also offers a rich ‘MensRecycle’ section. Having worked in the fashion industry throughout his studies and career to date, Scrap designs all One’s 100% New Zealand made (“locally...including a few Ponsonby residents”) clothing. He’s proud of One’s simplicity of design. “The shirts are refined, no decorative elements, no fusing in cuffs or collars, only pure shell buttons on best quality cottons in summer, and wools and heavy silks in winter.” A black voile shirt with a graduated button drop is his current bestseller - alongside the ‘de sade’ stool/sidetable/sculpture from Jonathon Logan. You may chose to visit One on Saturdays, when Scrap has cake delivered from ‘The Caker’ and serves L’Affare espresso from a custom E61 Rocket. “The machine is available to order, but the coffee and cake is on the house” he promises.
