Manahan Menswear x An Astute Assembly pop-up store

Ponsonby central is getting a special temporary store with the collaboration of Manahan Menswear and Japanese homeware store, An Astute Assembly.

The two retailers, whose owners share a person connection, are not so much collaborating a collection as much as they are cohabiting their designs within the one space.

Manahan Menswear is a label that defines itself as inspired by travel and how it shapes them. The brand has an undeniable connection with the places designers source inspiration from – often using history and stories to help in the creation process.

An Astute Assembly, also known as AAA, is a curation of Japanese inspired homewares that come with both culture and quality.

A combination of Japanese and local pieces, the homeware store sources direct from the artisans themselves.

The involvement of the pop-up store comes from a previous established relationship between the owners and a like-minded sense of business.

Director of AAA, Yuka O’Shannessy, says the plans began two months prior, after designer Andrea Manahan expressed her plans for the pop-up.

“[We are hoping to] enhance each other’s brands and introduce our brands to a new group of people… She does such good work, so I’m really just supporting her.”

O’Shannessy says the menswear label shares the same values as them, which will help in the co-habitation of the two collections in the Ponsonby Central pop-up store.

“We're honored to be asked by them. Manahan Men's wear is very Avant-garde, tailoring clothes that are very timeless and high quality. We think it shares same value with us in that sense.”

AAA run workshops throughout the year, so are used to the pop-up Auckland obsession. The workshops aim to share culture and knowledge with those who attended.

O’Shannessy is expecting the pop-up store to be well received by the public, as the unique pieces and style translate well into the Ponsonby scene.

“Manahan Men's clothing has similar quality, aesthetic as well as similar philosophy behind the brand. I'm sure the audience will appreciate the story and get to know us. The location – Ponsonby central is great, with a wide group of people coming through every day, I'm sure it'll go really well.”

According to the Manahan official Instagram, the pop-up store is live from today until Sunday June 25. It will be the designers first pop-up store for the label with the collection due to be available online shortly after.  

Counting Down 1 more day to go! Needless to say, there's still quite a few things to do before tomorrow's opening, but with such an awesome team from @aaaselect  to give us a helping hand, we're sure that everything will come together. See you all tomorrow, beautiful people of Auckland!

How do Kiwis do their Christmas shopping at Mighty Ape?

New Zealand e-tailer Mighty Ape surveyed 2,962 Kiwi shoppers post-Christmas last year. Among its findings are that Black Friday is officially bigger than Boxing Day among its audience, with almost four times as many products were sold on Black Friday compared to Boxing Day 2018. Cyber Monday, the online-only sale that falls on the Monday following Black Friday, has also proven to be popular with Kiwis. It now also outsells Boxing Day at Mighty Ape.​ ​It's presented further findings in a clever infographic.
