This week Vivienne, the creative mind from our Ponsonby store, shows us around her neighbourhood.


Which hej hej store do you work at?

Ponsonby Store, 282 Ponsonby Road


What's your favourite hej hej piece? 

Full Monty Dress - There’s something romantic about this dress…I love the floral print and the puff sleeves! I like to layer the Kidman Knit underneath for some extra warmth.
Knitty Gritty - This is my go-to jumper when I feel like wearing colour. It’s so cozy and comfy to wear. I like to pair it with the ebb and flow pants for a casual look or wear it over the Full Monty Dress.

Where do you go for coffee?

Allpress coffee 

What about a bite to eat?

Gurume - Their sushi not only looks appetizing but tastes great as well. My favorite is the soba sushi which has soba noodles instead of rice with all sorts of fresh ingredients in it. I also recommend their spicy chicken donburi. 

If you need something stronger?

No doubt, Ochkee!  They have the best selection of natural wines and their housemade soju shots which you don't want to miss out on. 

They also serve the best Korean food,  I recommend their hot pot 'jeon gol' on a cold day with Zucchini chips on the side. 

Beau - is a cozy place with an amazing wine list. 

Any favourite local stores?

Everyday Needs - is a homeware shop that offers thoughtfully designed objects you want to keep forever. 

Public REcord- is the best place for inspiration. It's a store and gallery space that has a beautiful collection of Japanese and local art.
