A UNIQUE NZ EXPERIENCE13th February 2019
In celebration of the new Fall 2019 collection we hosted an intimate launch party in New York City. In conjunction, the brand unveiled the newly designed Northern Hemisphere collection, ‘RE-NATURED’. Also, shown at Pitti Uomo, IT January 2019.
More than 75 guests arrived to preview Rodd & Gunn’s foray into advance outerwear. Guests included a mix of notable buyers (Nordstrom, Stitch Fix, Oakhall, Rothmans NY), key press (GQ, Forbes and Condé Nast Traveler) and lifestyle influencers such as Patrick Janelle of A Guy Named Patrick, Leo Chan of Levitate Style, Bobby Hicks of This Fellow and Diego Leon of Dandy in the Bronx.
Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed music from New Zealand born, now local to New York, DJ Isaac Likes while sipping on cocktails from Kiwi brand Broken Shed Vodka (with apt names such as Vodd & Gunner and Vodd & Tonic), Stolen Rum and a variety of wines from New Zealand’s Central Otago Amisfield Winery. The menu of luxe bites including pork rillettes, venison tartare and Pavlovas (a true New Zealand inspired menu!) was composed by acclaimed Michelin Starred Chef Matt Lambert of New York’s The Musket Room and Curator of Rodd & Gunn’s very own The Lodge Bar Queenstown, New Zealand.
