I've just gotten home from the opening party for Mark Crane's new Wunderkammer store on Randolph Street in Newton. It was wild. Saxophonist Nathan Haines was on the decks (he played Burt Bacharach and Michael), and I hit the D floor like I haven't in months.
Crane specifically said he wanted no photos taken at the opening – and I respected his wishes – but couldn't resist snapping a quick shot of the entrance. With a blend of Ann Demeulemeester, Comme and Costume National (from what I could see) housed in museum cabinets, alongside models of human organs?? this store is incredible; certainly the most exciting to have opened in Auckland in recent years.
More on this next week.
