  • Enliven your mornings with Nespresso

    Posted by Bernie McDougall

    Saben designer Roanne teamed up with Nespresso to find her morning personality and create a new coffee serve that captures it. Mixing their Roma Grand Cru with a touch of cardomon and a pinch of salt before adding frothed milk... As a ‘snoozer’ this is the perfect kick start to her busy days.

    Enliven your mornings - BE IN TO WIN the stylish CitiZ&milk. Delivers the perfect espresso every time. 

    To help our good friends at Nespresso celebrate the sleek new re-design of the CitiZ&milk machine we have one to giveaway!! The machine is RRP $499 and the giveaway includes a Morning Assortment Trio (30 capsules) of Grands Crus so you can find a flavour profile that suits your morning personality. Nespresso are the pioneers of the coffee capsule and only the tiniest percentage of coffee grown around the world meets their strict standards for taste and aroma – which is one of the reasons why we love them. Oh, and their capsules are made of aluminium, too, which means they’re completely recyclable. Even better!

  • EXTREME CREAM

    Posted by Bernie McDougall

    We are so in love with NATURAL, we have lovingly coined it the 'new neutral' ... 

    For Saben it is all about giving soft, creamy colors a new edge sharp silhouettes and intriguing textures...

    This once debatably 'boring' hue, socially restricted to the months between November and March is storm trouping it's way back into our hearts and wardrobes. 

    Could it have anything to do with THAT moment, when cream-clad Kardahian family wore textured cream hues to the Yeezy Season 3 New York Fashion Week show????

    IT'S UNCLEAR WHEN vanilla—a delicious and aromatic flavoring—came to embody everything that is unremarkable and uninteresting. But it's a reputation that's stuck. The same goes for cream, the color of the popular but occasionally maligned ice cream choice. Its connotations: safe, classic, boring. Ouch.

    But this season, Céline designer Phoebe Philo elegantly spiked the cream pitcher. Nearly a third of her collection came in shades of off-white, ranging from pale ivory to deliciously buttery. Still, no one would dare call the cocooning coats—like the exaggerated-collar one shown here—and flared skirts dull. A major plotline in Ms. Philo's creamy story was texture: thick and nubby cashmeres, wools with a moire surface, hefty ribbed knits and a charming lightweight wool dotted with fringed tufts of silk. In some looks, she deftly combined different shades of pale. Vanilla? Anything but.

  • David Jones Wellington: Our Lastest Saben Stockist!

    Posted by Brooke Fairgray
    What a busy week it's been here at Saben HQ! But it has all been worth it- as seen our snapchat (@sabennz) and instagram; we are now stocked at David Jones Wellington! (did the title give it away?).
    Mama Saben was down there for the grande opening and stayed at the Museum Hotel (which she hasn't stopped raving about), and so I hit her up for a pop quiz about the night!
    Ok, Museum Hotel; why was it sooo fabulous?
    "What's not to love about being surrounded by fabulous art? It's all in the details at the Museum Hotel- the Nespresso coffee machines in every room, the waterfall showers, plentiful towels, and a bed big enough for goldilocks!".
    Sounds divine! Did you have a favourite piece of art?
    "Yes, although I'm slightly biased as a few of the pieces hung in my parents' house for years".
    Now to the night; what made you pick the new Big Sis Tilly in natural croc?
    "I needed a clutch but I wanted a slightly bigger one.. Big Sis Tilly was the answer but it was a difficult choice between the geometric print Big Sis Tilly and the new natural croc, I went with the natural one in the end as she is the ultimate in luxe".
    What do you think of the new department store? We in Auckland are dying to hear about it!
    "A M A Z I N G, they have done a wonderful job of reinventing the space but keeping the character. The products, the displays, the finishing's and even the staff are so glamorous that you fell glamorous just walking around the space".
    I can't wait to see it! Ok last question, apart from Saben, was there a brand you were really excited to see?
    "Tom Ford, Saint Laurent, Chloe to name a few!".
      
    I don't know about you, but I'm sure hoping on the next flight down- it just sounds so lush!
    As you all know, we are big on Saben Love so if your around, pop in and have a play with the latest season and don't be afraid to #sabenlove and #meandmysaben because we just love seeing it!
