Wynn Crawshaw comes from humble beginnings in Te Puke (home of the giant kiwifruit), a mid-New Zealand smalltown, population circa 7,500 and what transpired is nothing short of an exemplary success story.
From Crawshaw’s debut collection in 2014, the wonderkid has gone from triumph to triumph with stockists including Moda Operandi, Bloomingdales, David Jones and Harvey Nichols; his take on knitwear now coveted the world over. Heavily inspired by the art of craft, the style is an endearingly playful interpretation of modern classics with eccentric undertones and tailored-to-perfection suiting.
In a year that has thrown many businesses through many loops to survive, we’re delighted to announce the debut of Crawshaw’s first flagship store in downtown Auckland. Set in the newly-opened Commercial Bay, Crawshaw’s shop is a can’t-miss zesty yellow feat of a space nestled among a bunch of fellow top-of-their-trade New Zealand businesses.
