About Us


Our Clothing brand, Smith & Western, has developed a longterm and loyal following since it's establishment in Queenstown in 2001.

We opened a second store in Ponsonby in 2014.

We believe in the integrity of a product that is high on quality and low on impact and the range continues to be 100% New Zealand Made.

As the Smith & Western team, we are a close knit group who have worked together for years to create a reputation for unique classics and great service.

The readily wearable line is continuous evolution of essential pieces. 

The signature use of compelling prints, fabrics, and colour combined with attention to drape and simplicity has created an enduring label with increasing demand amongst new and repeat customers.

The classics remain the base of the range, with essential shirts and tops, versatile dresses, fine knits and timeless pant styles. The styling simple, understated and relaxed while retaining its edge, credibility, and point of difference.

We retain boutique in approach and are not mass produced, "We are all about pieces you return to time and time again, not disposable fashion."

The team recognises the need for versatile, trans-seasonal clothes that cover a multitude of bases, with long-term value in each piece.

New pieces arrive in store each week, both new designs and limited edition runs which keep the range refreshed and vibrant.

The store also stocks a range of hand selected European boots, accessories,
One Teaspoon and Mavi denim, Velvet and more.

We have become a destination store with the introduction of hand selected imported, and New Zealand made, accessories, bags, lingerie, home ware, gifts and spa products we have come to love.

We also stock a range of handmade ceramics, lamps, hides and rugs, bed throws, exotic plants and objects, mens spa products and body products.

Ambient pieces that celebrate the diversity of global design.

The influence of international design, photography, art, and textiles are all key in the overall concept of the stores.

The experience of shopping with us is intended to be personal and friendly, and the space enjoyable and relaxed.

Our special thanks to our dear friends and models ,

Grace Barcelos Owen, Monique Cooley and Nana Holtzmann.
