This delightful historic Ponsonby space is home to one of New Zealand’s most treasured designers, Miss Crabb. She’s loved by many for the luxurious femininity of her designs, with liberal use of gorgeous silks and crepe de chine. The Miss Crabb woman celebrates her womanhood with simple yet creative silhouettes and gorgeous draping. The best thing about Miss Crabb pieces is they are all designed to be worn in multiple ways, which is a kind of freedom that not many labels can provide.
I adore that this label is made in New Zealand, in fact right above the store, with patterns cut by (Miss) Kristine Crabb herself. The quality is easy to recognise and appreciate, and each piece becomes a life long treasure for the wearer. This boutique has a lovely sense of play, with brightly coloured racks hanging from the ceilings, and plaid changing rooms. The space echoes the confidence and playfulness of Miss Crabb’s designs – bold colours paired with simple, feminine and indulgent elegance. In addition to Miss Crabb garments, the store also stocks Curio Noir scented candles, Alexandra Dodds jewellery, and locally made knits by Areez Katki.
Miss Crabb also offers a made to order service for special events and weddings.
