Both Jen and I are massive fans of quality basics that last the distance and can be worn over and over again, for us its all about quality fabrics with ease of care that are cut perfectly. Lucky for us then that we found Harrïe & Sam – a Waikato based fashion duo who have created exactly that; a capsule collection of edgy but classic pieces that can be worn on repeat.
Harrïe & Sam was started by long time besties Ella and Stacey and the Name Harrïe & Sam came about as it was the name of their two dogs (who are also besties).
I was lucky enough to choose a couple of their pieces from their Romance Collection – the No Frills Jacket and The Romance Top. The pieces in this collection are designed to make you feel feminine and beautiful, combining simple ruffles, soft pleats, plunging necklines and beautiful fabrics.
They also have a ‘thrasher collection which features garments which are multi-functional and super easy to wear and can be taken from day to night. This collection is available all year round.
Harrïe & Sam work a bit differently from other brands in that every item is sold as a pre-sale item, this means that every garment you select and purchase is made especially for you, right here in New Zealand. They work alongside a very talented and highly experienced commercial seamstress who ensures every piece is constructed with true passion and care.
