new this week: margaret howell
A new delivery of Margaret Howell is out on the shop floor now! We are also pleased to add to our racks her magnificently crafted womenswear, for the very first time.
With a career spanning more than 40 years, Margaret Howell is a true symbol of British style, her timeless collections matching discreet elegance and authenticity with the most exceptional materials possible. Producing garments that fuse the best of British tradition, quality and skill into enduring and functional designs is Howell’s principle objective and area of expertise.
Howell still uses linen produced in Ireland, which she cherishes for its irregular slub, and knitting factories in Scotland who continue their heritage of producing the best cashmere in the world.
What she makes with these elements respects and retains their character, resulting in clothing of the highest caliber that are made to be worn in the real world, where, as she says, “good design is about living with thoughtful style”.

fabric x Coffee Supreme Seafarers
After years of searching for the perfect inner city spot, our friends Coffee Supreme have recently opened a new site in the brilliantly renovated Seafarers building in downtown Auckland.
The new chapter of the story began two years ago, when Lucien Law and Simon Curran (Shine Ltd, Tyler St Garage, Fukuko, Ebisu) were provided with the rare opportunity to extend the legacy of the Seafarers building, by re-invigorating the site into a matrix of unique hospitality and entertainment venues.
The building, which spans Tyler and Quay Streets on Auckland’s waterfront, is steeped in history as Auckland’s home to generations of global seafarers – a role the building will continue play providing lodging on the first floor.
The ground floor is where you will find Supreme Seafarers, located in what was formerly the loading dock. Designed by Fearon Hay Architects,
this handsome space provides a vibrant welcome to the Seafarers experience, serving up all kinds of delicious treats by the celebrated Little & Friday, which perfectly compliment Supreme’s freshly batch-brewed coffee and excellent service.
The space also serves a dual purpose, with the launch of Supreme’s retail concept store. Housing a range of home-brewing accessories, alongside a carefully curated selection of desirables from some of New Zealands most progressive fashion and homewear brands, here you will find a range of COMME des GARÇONS wallets and fragrances, Saturdays magazines and Apolis market bags, courtesy of FABRIC.
An exceptional experience which will take you far beyond your daily caffeine pre-requisite, we highly recommend a visit to Supreme Seafarers on your next urban excursion.
Supreme Seafarers: 52 Tyler St, Britomart.
