'Lucky Dip' By Tuhirangi Blair Debuts At Precinct 35
Lucky Dip is a study into the structure, functionality and feel of vintage shirting. This current freshman collection, also their first, consists of 5 styles across 3 sizes. Head Designer Tuhirangi Blair aims to breathe new life into some of the most enduring shirt designs and recycled New Zealand textiles.
Each style has been meticulously considered and designed with a range of obvious and not so obvious detailing in mind. Materials are sourced throughout New Zealand and shirts are constructed entirely in Mt Victoria, Wellington.
An Auckland University of Technology alumnus, Tuhirangi refined his craft while interning at Nepenthes New York and later as the Menswear Designer for Workshop Denim. Through his experiences with Daiki Suzuki and Angelo Urrutia at Nepenthes New York, and working with Chris Cherry at Workshop Denim, Tuhirangi developed an in-depth knowledge and appreciation of vintage garments and untraditional shirt making.
As the name Lucky Dip suggests, each shirt is completely unique, a ‘one of one’. This reflects the project’s vision of embracing the unique idiosyncrasies of vintage textiles and ensures a commitment to sustainability. Lucky Dip will be running a pop-up at Precinct 35 with some of their latest inventory from Tuesday July 10th until Saturday July 14th.
