Things to do in Auckland
Housed in a restored cinema, Royal Jewellery Studio sells the work of such local artisans as Benjamin Flynn, who uses Maori koru patterns in his hammered silver and gold rings.
The avant-garde shop is famous for its origami-inspired dresses; the less daring will find blazers and women's 1940's-style blouses.
For hats and hair accessories with a retro spin, stop by Natalie Chan; even Lady Gaga has one of the designer's one-off creations. Her pearl-and-feather motif is a standout.
You'll find 1950's French industrial Jieldé lamps and vintage tapestry pillows.
