Neat in Neutrals

Tāera. Fashion.

Photographer: Francine Boer
Stylist: Jess Beachen (Ngāi Tahu)
MODEL: Brenna Johnston
Shot: ON LOCATION AT Stewart Town, Bannockburn

Whether woven, felted or knitted, there’s something irresistible about high-quality fibres – a hallmark of fashion labels from heartland Aotearoa. Autumn’s cooling breezes invite you to wrap yourself in cosy, earth-toned layers. Shepherdess takes a moment to slow down and embrace the seasonal palette of Bannockburn with a shoot on the grounds of the archaeological mining site, Stewart Town.
