Shopping Find: Lonely Auckland

Located in the historic Hayes Building on Teed Street is Lonely Auckland. This second flagship store of the cult brand and apparel label opened in late 2016 and presents an exploration of the layers of intimacy. 

Unlike most other stores with window displays, Lonely Auckland boasts a wall of pink plaster – piquing the curiosity of any walker-by. Enter via the long, sultry-lit tunnel and you’ll find yourself at the center of the beautiful store. A tactile palette of oak, plaster, polished brass, and cast bronze is cleverly put together to produce a soft, private space and shopping experience.

Specially commissioned cast bronze fixings by New Zealand artist Kate Newby and the incorporation the works of mid-century female designers like Eileen Gray and Charlotte Perriand, underpins the Lonely brand’s dedication to creativity and empowerment. Alongside their current season lingerie, swimwear and clothing, the store also has a select offering of scents by Maison Louis Marie and a curated range of jewellery by Anna Sheffield.

The space emulates the kind of serenity you experience while looking at Monet’s ‘Les Nympahéas’. And with customer service at its heart – quite literally at the center of the store – Lonely Auckland have materialised, not just in their apparel, but also in their store, what it means to be modern and romantic.

  • NEW YORK: We’d still say (with conviction!) that @AngelsShareNYC make the best cocktails in NYC. Enter via a loosely associated Japanese restaurant and score a seat in one of the booths by the big beautiful windows. Otherwise, handsome (and skilled) Japanese bar tenders make sitting at the bar a pretty good consolation prize. #MeltingButterNYC #FromTheArchives #AngelsShare Photo: @lilixlopez
  • NEW YORK: Recently opened in the cool part of the Lower East Side, @CervosNYC is a chic seafood and wine bar serving fresh, complex Portuguese and Spanish sharing plates amongst an understated, stylish interior with lighting so good it feels like you’re receiving a warm hug when you step inside. #MeltingButterNYC #CervosNYC Photo by @MattDuckor
  • NEW YORK: @SakeBar.Decibel is an underground Japanese sake and cocktail bar marked only by an illuminated “On Air” sign in front. Inside this graffiti-covered drinking den, you’ll find yourself transported to one of Tokyo's pocket-sized #GoldenGai bars. #MeltingButterNYC #FromTheArchives #SakeBarDecibel Photo: @ntiangco
