Somewhere represents that place where arriving feels like a warm embrace, a deep breath, a loving smile. It’s about going back to your roots, arriving home, to that place in the world where you truly belong. Where your feet feel grounded and your spirit recharged. We hope that when you wear these clothes, you are transported to your very own Somewhere.

#MySomewhere is... Akaroa, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand

Tell us about your Somewhere… My family are blessed to have a holiday home in Akaroa. When my parents bought the house it was derelict, the local fire brigade were going to do a practice job on it! My father is a specialist in conservation architecture, so he couldn't let this 1860's house be lost. We have restored this house as a family and it was a very special time for us. Based on the coast in the South Island of New Zealand, Akaroa is breathtakingly beautiful and never disappoints.  Mum and I grow our favourite flowers down here, peonies. 

I get there by… an hour flight and then an hour drive.

I first came here… when I was 15 years old. Have been going for 10 years.

When I am here I feel… at peace, relaxed, inspired and content

A typical day here… For the first few years we would be working on the house. Lots of sanding and painting! But now that the work is done we can enjoy our haven. Sleeping in, breakfast outside in my mums beautiful garden, swimming and talking, eating and drinking with my family.

My favourite time of year here is.... Winter

Because… It's like a ghost town compared to the summer! It's so quiet and still. We normally sit around the fire reading and talking.

My favourite pieces to wear at #MySomewhere are… 01 Hoodie, 01 Shirt, 01 Singlet
