Aotearoa a la Mode
New Zealand lifestyle and design fills 15 pages in this month’s Marie Claire Maison. The French publication’s spread includes Outpost Hokianga (Rangi Kipa’s Corian Tiki pictured), EON, Stevens Lawson, David Trubridge, Black Barn, Dilana Rugs, 42 Below, Gavin Chilcott, Air New Zealand, the Matakana Cinema, Aotearoa Lamour and artagent.co.nz. The article was based on an itinerary put together by Paris-based company Moaroom, who since 2004, has been collaborating with New Zealand artists, designers and entrepreneurs in Europe. In February this year, Moaroom also worked with windowdressers and stylists of the legendary Parisian department store Printemps to combine David Trubridge’s most recent work with the latest fashion collections of Lanvin and Stella McCartney.
