During the second evening HYT hosted 15 customers in an intimate sit-down dinner at the Australian National Maritime Museum, a beautiful setting and juxtaposition of old and new, of traditional and modern. Gregory Dourde commented, ‘fluids are our playground and I can’t think of a better setting than the Extreme Sailing Series in one of the most beautiful harbours in the world to launch HYT in Australia. We met some very passionate collectors over the last few days and great press personalities. We’re looking forward to growing our business here.’ MAD & Associates Managing Director, Nicholas Hooper added, ‘I’m very happy to have introduced HYT to Australia and I expect the unprecedented innovation that HYT has brought to watchmaking to strongly resonate with Australians. Early indications show that collectors here are already very excited.’ The four days finished with the 11 December Grand Finale where Alinghi was the proud winner and champion of the Extreme Sailing Series 2016.

We’re all time travellers when you journey to New Zealand. Our location on the edge of the GMT dateline means we’re ahead in time from all other countries and to get here you’ve actually travelled through time. You’re now five hours ahead of Perth, Australia, 13 hours ahead of London, England, and 19 hours ahead of Chicago, USA.   Thousands of people do small stints of time travel everyday as they journey from place to place around the globe. But when you travel to New Zealand you really go the distance, in fact so forward in time for many that you actually arrive in tomorrow. News and events from home will be happening yesterday, weird aye? Celebrate this miraculous (pretty easy) feat with a 100% cotton time traveller tee from East 180. (NZL Store).

It’s all about distances, taking the risk, a calling. People who journey to New Zealand travel forward through time, to the end of the earth, where the new day starts. They are now in their future, on the edge of tomorrow – it starts again here, first. The NZL store celebrates the bravery, innovation and determination of ‘the traveller’, and this combined with our country’s ethos of uncompromising freedom and individuality, underpins all that they do. The NZL store is about product of time, place and imagination, and they’re about providing a connection between the journey and a personality: an item that comes to life because you wear it, or display it, with context; from a backdrop of exploration, courage and change. A recently posted blog on the NZL Store website at http://www.nzlstore.com titled “Celebrate your bravery anyway with a quality 100% cotton East 180 tee from NZL store”, said. “A definition of bravery and the saying to follow in the footsteps of giants. The sea journey to New Zealand from Europe in the mid-19th century and one of the longest journeys of migration in human history. •    100 days in a wooden boat propelled by canvas sheets tied up with rope •    covering a distance of 20,000 km (12,500 miles) over oceans and seas •     encountering anything from sub-arctic storms with waves of over 5m (16 ft.), to being becalmed in the doldrums for weeks; to 15m (49 ft.) whales and icebergs. •    sharing a tiny space of only 1.8m headroom with 200 others; as well as livestock, rats and cockroaches. •    never washing, apart from the occasional flooding by sea water as waves break over the bow •     eating only salted and preserved meat, ship’s biscuits of flour, oatmeal and dried potatoes washed down with a little stale water. It makes the 24 hour travelling time to NZ now a dream but celebrate your bravery anyway with a quality 100% cotton East 180 tee from NZL store.” NZL Store Philosophy Reflected In Their Products 2016-02-21T21:40:21Z nzl-store-philosophy-reflected-in-their-products NZL store is all about interpreting New Zealand in a new light; cinematic prints, candid snapshots, statement t-shirts and accessories; so that others visiting our land can take away a souvenir of something unique that in some way defines their stay. It is also about New Zealand and mythology; allegories of our land in a new light – it’s all about distances, taking the risk, a calling. To come here people travel forward through time, to the end of the earth, where the new day starts. NZL store is about an ethos of uncompromising freedom and individuality, uncovered in unexpected ways, offering a unique range of printed products and artisan gifts for travellers and locals looking for something new and surprising. The NZL store also offers exceptional great gift ideas for homesick Kiwis overseas. The Oxford English dictionary describes an Outlier as a person or thing detached or separated from the main body or system. From this point of view New Zealand could be described as an outlier. 4,000 km east of Australia and about 9000 km west of Chile, New Zealand sits all alone out in the middle of the southern Pacific. As a result of this isolation New Zealanders have developed some interesting traits. Described as having a number eight wire culture, early New Zealanders had to fix machines, clothes, furniture etc. way beyond their useful lives, often using things they could find in their local environment. Number eight wire was plentiful in the farming community and so became the symbol of this self-sufficient attitude. An example of the way NZL’s philosophy reflects their products is their Outlier Tee which replicates this interesting relationship between isolation and the rise of the number eight wire culture. The three dimensional line design looks formed from wire, but also hints at the idea of design drawings. Any new project needs to start with a plan and New Zealand as a new country is still in its formative years revealing a brand new country and culture forming all in physical isolation in the middle of the Pacific.

Australian start-up is pioneering a new era of eco fashion. 2016-02-03T09:52:00Z australian-start-up-is-pioneering-a-new-era-of-eco-fashion A new Australian online store is proving that fashion and the environment can go hand-in-hand, with its range of eco friendly fashion accessories.Adelaide-based Greenlife Online, founded by entrepreneur Matthew Devitt in 2014, sells unique watches, sunglasses, wood reading glasses and much more, all made from environmentally friendly and sustainable materials.The company’s most popular products are ‘WeWood’ watches, made from recycled and reclaimed wood, while wood sunglasses and reading glasses from Proof Eyewear are also said to be flying off the shelves.The brands stocked by Greenlife Online don’t just manufacture the products, sit back and watch the money roll in – they’re firm believers in the double bottom line, which measures the social impact of a business, as well as the financial side.That’s why WeWood plant a tree for every watch sold, and Proof Eyewear donate a percentage of their profits to charities in all four corners of the globe.Greenlife Online are certainly doing their bit to contribute to those donations – they are Australia’s only stockist of Proof’s prescription-ready wooden glasses, each pair of which are handmade for that extra special customer experience.Owner Matthew Devitt – who also runs a solar energy business – really has left no stone unturned in his quest for sustainability: Greenlife Online runs entirely on solar power, making them a carbon neutral business, and uses only recycled packaging.He also refuses to sell anything that he wouldn’t wear or endorse himself:“I’ve had my wooden watch for around four years now, and it was the comments I got from people in the street that made me decide to start Greenlife Online in the first place.”“Many people are very interested in eco-friendly alternatives to popular fashion products, but don’t know where to find them. Greenlife Online is a place that people all over the country can find hand-picked sustainable brands all in the one place. Most people haven't seen a wooden watch or wood sunglasses before, but once they try a pair on you can see that they're converted almost instantly."Greenlife Online has featured on lifestyle sites Adelady and She Shopped, and 2016 looks set to be another exciting year, as more and more consumers seek to do their bit for the planet - and look great in the process. “I’m always looking for new products that fit our ethos, and in 2016 we’ve got some more exclusive brands on the way that I think Australians will absolutely love.”For more information about Greenlife Online and their range of eco friendly fashion accessories, please visit www.greenlifeonline.com.au Sydney 2016 Home & Giving Fair, the only industry led gift and homewares trade event in Australia 2016-02-03T02:35:43Z sydney-2016-home-amp-giving-fair-the-only-industry-led-gift-and-homewares-trade-event-in-australia Organised by the Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA), Home & Giving Fair is the only gift trade event in Australia, run by the industry, for the industry.
