Sum­mer may be draw­ing to an end, but Wel­ling­to­ni­ans are well known for mak­ing the most of every sunny day. Fish­Head took to the streets, seek­ing sun-lov­ers with hot sum­mer style.

Rachael Storey

Name: Rachael Storey | Age: 31 | Occu­pa­tion: Prop­erty investor | Favour­ite Wel­ling­ton shops: Kar­en Walk­er and World |It was love at first sight when Fish­Head spot­ted Rachael’s metal­lic Shoe Con­nec­tion loafers glisten­ing in the mid­day sun. The shoes were paired per­fectly with a simple T‑shirt from Super­ette and a pair of Lee jeans. Topped off with Kar­en Walk­er sunglasses and a hand-made neck­lace, Rachael’s out­fit proved once and for all that some­times, less actu­ally is more.

Tom Withnall

Name: Tom With­nall | Age: 17 | Occu­pa­tion: Stu­dent at Wel­ling­ton Col­lege | Favour­ite Wel­ling­ton shops: AS Col­our and I Love Ugly |Tom was look­ing way too cool for school when Fish­Head spot­ted him sun­ning him­self in Civic Square, wear­ing a lob­ster-prin­ted Tommy Hil­fi­ger T‑shirt, Calv­in Klein shorts and Adi­das sneak­ers. Tom’s out­fit was topped off with a cap from Good As Gold, a back­pack from an online store and a pair of awe­some striped socks, cour­tesy of mum, of course.

Kylie Soo

Name: Kylie Soo | Age: 23 | Occu­pa­tion: Account­ant | Favour­ite Wel­ling­ton shops: Marcs and Coun­try Road | Kylie was enjoy­ing a sunny lunch­break on the water­front when Fish­Head spied her styl­ish cor­por­ate out­fit. Kylie remin­isced about yearly over­seas shop­ping trips as Fish­Head drooled over her beau­ti­ful shirt, chi­nos, belt and shoes, all from Japan and Amer­ica. Kylie com­pleted her look with a pair of fold­able Ray-Ban sunglasses, the per­fect space-sav­ing access­ory for any fash­ion­able traveller.

Paul O'Mahony

A Paul Smith car­digan, Per­sol sunglasses and Con­verse sneak­ers com­pleted the look, with a San Fran cap help­ing to keep this sun-starved Brit safe from the fierce Kiwi rays.
