Everything Went Fine.

We’re giving away five double passes to the French Film Festival — opening next week

It feels like some time since we ventured out to cool cultural events, with the last two years relegating things like film festivals to virtual viewings and online programming only. Now, in the spirit of ‘getting on with it’, the French Film Festival is readying itself to roll the opening credits in person once more, with tickets on sale now for its stellar programme, starting next week.

On in Auckland from the 1st until the 19th of June (and popping up in cities around the country through other dates in June), this year’s French Film Festival will showcase 21 of the most quintessentially French films across three theatres: Epsom’s Lido, Northcote’s The Bridgeway and Newmarket’s Rialto. To celebrate the return of this cultural stalwart IRL, we are giving away five double passes to those Denizens looking to be enchanted by the unique subtleties of French cinema. From gripping dramas to psychological thrillers and some moving love stories thrown in for good measure, these are a few of the films we’re booking tickets to.

Between Two Worlds
In this story of an outsider seeking to fit in, friendships and memories are forged under a false pretence. Based on French journalist Florence Aubenas’ bestselling non-fiction book, Le Quai de Ouistreham (The Night Cleaner), subtle themes of tragedy and deceit are glazed with humour and enjoyment.

Everything Went Fine
After immersing myself in the incredible non-fiction book, Assisted, earlier this year, Everything Went Fine is high on my must-watch list for the festival. Sharing the dialogue between a daughter and her elderly father as he pushes for a medically assisted death, it’s raw and gut-wrenching but all too real in life.

Maigret
Based on Georges Simenon’s internationally adored novels, Maigret embodies the ultimate in crime fiction that feels reminiscent of a French Agatha Cristie. Set in 1950s Paris, the mystery of a woman found murdered in an elegant gown feels strikingly familiar to Inspector Jules Maigret for more reasons than one.

Madeleine Collins
For seekers of psychological thrillers, Madeleine Collins should be essential on your agenda. Here, a fragile balance based on a web of lies sees a woman living a double life between France and Switzerland and the chaos that ensues when she ploughs forward.

Love Songs for Tough Guys
Starring Vanessa Paradis, French actress and mother of the ineffable Lily-Rose Depp, Love Songs for Tough Guys is a lighthearted and gentle tale with plenty of twists and turns. A French Love Actually with its interwoven storylines, this is perfect to add to your schedule if you’re looking for love and laughter.

The Young Lovers
Conversations with Friends, but with an older cast, and spoken in French. The Young Lovers explores the duality of accidentally falling in love with someone outside your marriage and the melancholic joy it can bring before the all-too-real threat of heartbreak.

To celebrate this year’s incredible lineup and the return of the French Film Festival, Denizen has five double passes to giveaway to five lucky readers. Click here to enter.

We’ve got our eyes on these pieces by Thomas Bina — a pioneer of sustainable design

Sustainability and design have been dovetailing in their practices of late, with one informing the other to fulfil a brief that considers form, function and the future. The notion of sustainability is a concept now inherent in architecture and design, with many leading schools instilling this value in students from an undergraduate level. That said, there are a few pioneers in the space who have long embraced sustainable principles in their design practice, and whose work offers something of a blueprint for the future.

Thomas Bina Peyton Media Console.

Enter Thomas Bina, a celebrated American designer whose designs find solace in simplicity. His aesthetic is marked by slight and soft lines and where he differs from many of his contemporaries is that sustainability, for him, is the drawing board rather than simply an afterthought.

Thomas Bina Natal Media Console 3 tier; Thomas Bina Bridge Dining Table.

His use of reclaimed timber drives the sustainability element in a way that feels anything but rustic. Bina’s traditional designs offer a raw but refined aesthetic, one that is often attempted yet rarely executed. The result is beautiful, considered pieces that are just as suited to a simple, modern home as they are to a more sumptuous, layered interior.

Recently, new Thomas Bina has arrived at local purveyors of considered design, Frobisher and these are the pieces we’re coveting right now.

Denizen’s definitive guide to Auckland’s best yoga studios

With a range of health benefits, the ancient practice of yoga has become an essential part of our exercise routine of late. Whether it’s a sweat session you’re seeking, or a moment of soulful solitude, our city offers an abundance of studios that cater to a range of needs. And as we enter a winter free from lockdowns, there has never been a better time to trial Auckland’s best yoga studios.

Sweat Yoga, Newmarket
Encouraging mindful movement even as the heart rate soars, Sweat Yoga’s offering has become its most popular, with both yoga and pilates working in tandem to give its dedicated disciples a varied schedule. Founded by teacher and Bikram-convert Bruce Simons, this studio has been built on the belief that yoga can change your life. Sweat’s outdoor classes, including vinyasa and HIIT pilates, promise to bring the heat this season.

Basecamp Power Yoga, Grey Lynn
The Scrap Yard’s beloved Basecamp has built itself a dedicated following, not just because of it’s architecturally-designed fit-out or close proximity to Ozone Coffee Roasters (for a post-session brunch), but because of its unique approach to hot yoga. We particularly love the Saturday morning opportunity to move and groove with Jess, where her background in the music industry lends itself to a perfectly curated playlist for a surprisingly relaxing (but still very sweaty) session.

Eastwest Yoga, Grey Lynn
Connecting body to breath, and beyond, Eastwest Yoga celebrates a variety of modern and traditional yoga, from vinyasa and ashtanga to kirtan and meditation. Founded by mother-daughter duo, Sheryn Gieck and Amelia McCombie, the goal of every welcoming, well-balanced class is to find inner calm. They also currently offer a range of online courses.

Studio Red, City Works Depot
Having operated for six years, last year was Studio Red’s busiest yet, according to founder Vicky Cullinane. More than just a yoga studio, it is a bona fide wellness destination, organising retreats and workshops and focusing on the popularity of its restorative practices and classes. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced yogi, practising yoga in Studio Red’s gently-warmed, beautifully appointed room is transformative and memorable.

Sala, Ponsonby
While Ponsonby’s Sala prides itself on being more than simply a yoga studio — and it truly is — the yoga offering forms the core of its offering, and it truly is second to none. Monica’s dynamic yoga classes are some of our favourite in the city, while Sarah’s highly-sought-after teaching combines challenging poses with profound mindfulness to push you to better your body and soul.

Flourish Yoga, Takapuna
For those seeking solace on the North Shore, Takapuna’s Flourish Yoga is an uplifting destination with the intention to work out mind, body and spirit. Each teacher has been carefully selected for their contribution to Flourish’s ethos, where an intimate space for connection is held in the highest regard. What we love about this space is the short walk to nearby Slöwe Studio, where you can continue your wellbeing with a restorative sauna.

Kanuka Yoga Space, Hobsonville
Those wanting yoga out west should do well to try Hobsonville’s Kanuka Yoga Space, with a light-filled room that offers classes influenced by vinyasa, hatha and yin. Here, alongside all of the regular classes, teachers offer a unique fusion of yogalates, bringing together both the strength of pilates and the relaxation of yoga — a fitting marriage for fitness enthusiasts.

Yoga Ground, Grey Lynn
This suburban studio offers all the makings of a blissful yoga experience. Here, classes draw from traditional hatha and vinyasa practices — offering a moment of reprieve from many of the sweat-styled classes found around the city. What we truly adore, however, is the kundalini yoga sessions, that bring together elements of mantra, breath and meditation alongside movement.

Contemporary Yoga Centre, Remuera
This yoga space in Remuera offers a refined schedule that considers all the needs of its students. Contemporary Yoga classes merge the Eastern and Western schools of thought, to offer a highly individualised approach to the practice that meets our modern needs.

The Space, Matakana
While The Space may be a little further afield, this Matakana studio is the perfect place to drop into for a class over the weekend or while you’re away at the bach. Bringing together the foundations of yoga, meditation and pilates, the approach to movement is unique, but one that has garnered a dedicated following.

Nespresso’s new limited-edition espresso is transporting us to Miami

Nespresso’s World Explorations Range celebrates coffee cultures around the world, and encourages Nespresso devotees to enjoy their morning brew in different ways. The latest addition to this collection (one of four new coffees added) is the Limited-Edition Miami Espresso, inspired by the melting-pot culture of Miami.

Infused with the boldness and vibrancy of the Hispanic influence in this city, Nespresso’s new coffee delivers an intense roast and dark crema with peppery, tobacco-leaf aromas. If you’re looking for a truly authentic experience, do as Miami locals do and enjoy yours with brown sugar sprinkled on top. Or for a more conventional coffee, this blend makes the perfect cappuccino.

World Explorations Miami Espresso has been released as the first part of a limited-edition line-up with flavours that go from Miami to Paris to Istanbul and even Rio de Janeiro (a blend previously known as the Cafezinho do Brasil).

These cities are no coincidences either, they all embody a strong history of coffee in their own unique ways; from the first coffee merchants and coffeehouses of Istanbul, to Paris’ rich coffee culture which boasts more than 35,000 cafés and coffee-serving restaurants. Coffee drinking in Miami is deeply ingrained in the local culture, while Rio de Janeiro is part of the world’s largest coffee-producing country, Brazil.

While the limited-edition espresso is exactly that, limited, we’ve been enjoying the opportunity to step away from our usual brew and explore the tastes of Miami from the comfort of home.

Serving tasty Mexican fare, De Nada is Auckland’s newest taqueria

Denizen’s definitive guide on where to eat if you’re gluten-free

Serving tasty Mexican fare, De Nada is Auckland’s newest taqueria

For Mt. Eden locals, De Nada has been a long time coming. Located in the heart of the suburb’s village, it’s a space that has been drawing speculation from passers by on their daily commutes and now, after months of renovations, it is finally opening its doors. For the owners, it’s been a much longer wait (two years in fact), and they intend to celebrate accordingly.

De Nada is a new Mexican eatery and taco joint — aptly named after the common Spanish phrase for ‘your welcome’ — and it’s set to be a place where you can truly leave your worries at the door. From the funky fit-out to the the joyous drinks menu that puts a creative take on traditional Mexican cocktails, De Nada offers a convivial atmosphere that promises to set the perfect tone every time. 

But as much as we love a margarita, it’s the food here that is the real drawcard. While the classic offering of sharing plates (platitos) will allow you to sample all the sumptuous flavours on the menu, there are still options for those who prefer to order just for themselves — think tacos, nachos and larger comidas. Of course, to experience the full effect of this menu, we recommend taking a bunch of friends and getting at least one of everything to share (and at least two servings of chimichangas for good measure).

Located directly next door to local favourite, Scarlett Slimms and Lucky, the team behind De Nada certainly know what they’re doing and who they’re doing it for and with a track record of excellent hospitality, we’re expecting De Nada’s offering to be delicious, memorable and fun.

Opening hours:
Monday — Friday, 12pm until 12am
Saturday — Sunday, 8am until 12am

Three new dishes at Soul Bar & Bistro you need to be eating now

Soul Bar & Bistro is a stalwart for a reason. Over the years it has mastered the art of balance on its menu, where longstanding favourites sit alongside a selection of seasonally-rotating dishes that harness the produce of the moment — offering a culinary experience that always keeps us coming back for more.

Given the recent change in seasons, a raft of delicious new dishes have landed on Soul’s menu. So if you haven’t been down in a while or are yet to step outside your comfort zone of classic mac and cheese (we get it), we strongly suggest booking a table and delving into the new offering. These are the dishes to be eating right now.

Wagyu oxtail raviolo.

Wagyu oxtail raviolo
Served with celeriac and pickled onion gremolata, this satiating dish is packed with rich, warming flavours that complement the perfectly-filled piece of al dente pasta.

Brussels sprout caesar salad.

Brussels sprout caesar salad
It’s a Caesar salad but not as you know it. Soul’s more wintery take on this classic dish harnesses all the flavours you might expect, but unexpectedly uses Brussels sprouts as the vehicle. Genius.

Lime semifreddo.

Lime semifreddo
Even if you don’t sport a serious sweet tooth, this semifreddo is the perfect way to wrap up any meal. Here, lime is matched with feijoa, mandarin curd and buttermilk granita to offer a dessert that is tart, refreshing and sweet but not overwhelming.

Denizen’s definitive guide on where to eat if you’re gluten-free

For those who can eat gluten without a care in the world, I envy you. I also warn that this article may be of little interest unless you’re planning a meal friends for whom gluten-laced food is a problem. But for my fellow diners who can’t indulge in gluten, knowing that your needs are still catered to throughout the city is paramount. No one likes to be the person who can’t go anywhere because of the food on offer, so we’ve uncovered the restaurants serving Auckland’s best gluten-free food (that your gluten-loving friends will adore too).

Faraday’s Bar
The beautifully-appointed bar attached to Parnell’s Faradays, knows how to cater to the most discerning of diners, with elevated offerings unlike anywhere else in the city. Here, the superbly-crafted menu is mostly gluten-free, with sumptuous substitutes on offer for any dish that does contain gluten. It’s the finest of dining experiences for everyone — regardless of dietary requirement.

Azabu
Where would we be without Azabu, one of the city’s favourite establishments? Gluten-free is often the norm here, and the fresh flavours and Japanese fare ranks as some of Auckland’s best.

Hello Beasty, Jervois Steak House.

Hello Beasty
Viaduct Harbour’s beloved Hello Beasty serves up some of our favourite gluten-free dishes in the city. With a specialty menu, so your needs don’t feel amiss, you could spend days dining on these tasty offerings.

Jervois Steak House
A simple steak done well is an easy, reliable option that manages to more than satisfy us every time. Renowned for serving some of the best in Auckland (and Queenstown, too), Jervois Steak House is an impressive option to add to your gluten-free dining agenda.

Pici
K’ Road cult-favourite Pici is known for its pasta — the vice for many gluten-free folks. But they make their addictive offerings inclusive with homemade gluten-free alternatives, meaning you can indulge in the beloved cacio e pepe without a care in the world.

Honey Bones, Ahi.

Honey Bones
This Grey Lynn brunch gem truly is a wonder. All menu foods can be made gluten-free if you need them, and the staff are only too happy to accommodate.

Ahi
In all its fine glory, Ahi’s menu is renowned for being both innovative and delectable and decidedly delightful for those with a range of dietary requirements. Here, gluten-free dishes can be found in great abundance (although we suggest letting the kitchen know when you book).

The Butcher’s Son
Generally speaking, if a kitchen knows how to cater for one dietary requirement, they’re pretty good at adapting for them all. Perhaps that’s why plant-based eatery, The Butcher’s Son’s gluten-free menu is just so good and is filled with delicious options.

Odettes, Giapo.

Odettes
The Crown jewel of City Works Depot, Odettes, offers a menu that’s always accommodating. Here, most meals that aren’t already gluten-free can be made so easily, and it provides some of the city’s most beloved brunches.

Giapo
It’s another little known secret that Giapo’s famed waffle cones are naturally gluten-free. This means that those who need to avoid gluten, need not compromise on deliciousness or be relegated to the use of a pottle and spoon.

INCA
With two outposts now, this Peruvian-meets-Asian joint offers the best of the two cuisines and a dietary-friendly take on the menu. We love the Pacifica ceviche and the spicy tuna tostada (both dairy-free too).

Taco Medic, Masu.

Taco Medic
Ponsonby Road’s taste of Mexico is a fiesta for all. The 100% gluten-free outpost (with a second venue coming soon) often has lines out the door and serves some of the most divine tacos in the city — we love the Kaimanga for vegan folks too.

Masu
Skycity’s Masu is revered for Nic Watt’s fresh take on Japanese cuisine, but it’s a little-known secret that some of the best gluten-friendly foods in the city can be found here too.

Cafe Hanoi
Those who have been gluten-free for a while will know how accommodating Asian cuisine can be. Although Cafe Hanoi is not purposely gluten-free, dishes are often accidentally so or can be made to cater to your needs. This is inspired, flavoursome dining at its best.

Runway report: We round up the Fall/Winter ’22 trends to know

There was a solemnity that descended on the fashion set as they hit the streets of New York, London, Milan and Paris for the Fall 2022 season. After all, it was absurd to be chatting about clothes with war breaking out only a few countries away. The invasion of Ukraine by Russia hung over the shows like a fog, with some designers choosing a business-as-usual approach and others addressing it directly (see: Georgio Armani’s eerily silent show in Milan). Although none could have done it as poignantly as Demna did at Balenciaga — the designer pivoting his dramatic show from a climate change allegory to an act of defiance, with every seat surrounding the glass rotunda runway given its own Ukrainian flag alongside show notes that spoke to the designer’s first hand experience with war, ending with a message of love always winning.

Looking beyond its immediate geopolitical context, Fall 2022 still felt, in many ways, like it was reacting to the disruptions of the last few years. Suiting, for example, spoke to the question of whether people will ever return to the office, with new takes on tailoring at brands like Givenchy and Dior and preppy details like formal mini-skirts and neckties (here’s looking at you, Gucci) feeling distinctly at odds with the idea
of sitting behind a desk.

Clockwise from top: Louis Vuitton Fall 22, Max Mara Fall 22, Christian Dior Fall 22.

Elsewhere, Y2K nostalgia (encouraged by a pandemic-driven desire to reminisce) was responsible for a plethora of skin-baring looks at the likes of Nensi Dojaka, Coperni and Miu Miu, which bizarrely didn’t feel out of place among the season’s heavy suiting and winter coats. (So don’t pack away your summer outfits too hastily.) In a similar vein, glamorous peignoire-inspired pieces by Fendi and Bottega Veneta (among others) shimmered in all their after-dark appeal, satiating our craving for clothes that feel flirty and fanciful. Building on this idea was the sense of playfulness introduced with various fur, feather and tassel trimmings at brands like Alaïa, Alexander McQueen and Prada, lending levity to traditionally severe styles.

Speaking of severe, the Fall silhouettes were exaggerated. Think elongated bodies, strong or dropped shoulders, slouchy sleeves and cinched-in waists. There were sleek, boxy tuxedos at Saint Laurent, corsets at Versace, Christian Dior and Fendi and geometric surrealism at Loewe, but nowhere was this idea as well executed as at Louis Vuitton, where coats were perfectly oversized, hips pushed out and proportions placed at the centre of every look. 

Gucci Fall 22, Givenchy Fall 22, Bottega Veneta Fall 22.

Hemlines dropped down just as boots were rising up. Over-the-knee styles at houses like Chanel and Givenchy saw those brands putting their best foot forward as showstopping boots became the shoe of the season. Floor-dragging skirts, trousers and dresses at the likes of Saint Laurent and Burberry offered an elegance that felt effortless and uber-feminine — while faux-fur and feather trimmings put a sumptuous spin on the season’s more show-stopping pieces (think Valentino and Prada). 

Leather and denim seemed to be the textiles of the season with almost every major brand sending their own versions of leather jackets, dresses, pants or all of the above down the runway. While the proliferation of denim heralded what was undoubtedly one of the biggest trends of Fall 2022 — elevated basics. The white tank top became an unexpected breakout star, and understated singlets, T-shirts and white collared shirts were hailed as winter wardrobe must-haves, often paired with simple blue-denim jeans. If nothing else, this ascent of basics from foundational to fundamental spoke to our collective desire to dress purposefully again. Fashion at large is becoming less interested in playing into ‘trends’ and more invested in looks that truly last. And thank goodness for that. 

Clockwise from top left: Alexander McQueen Fall 22, Chanel Fall 22, Burberry Fall 22, Bottega Veneta Fall 22, Balenciaga Fall 22.

As far as accessories were concerned, handbags were doubled up and layered, offering a more chic (but possibly less practical) alternative to the single, oversized tote; while faux fur staged a fluffy takeover of bags, shoes and even hats. In fact, headwear in general really had a moment on the Fall 2022 runways. From the Gucci beret to the Burberry headband to the balaclavas at Max Mara and even the hair clips at Chanel and Versace — it would seem that forgetting to dress your head will prove a serious faux-pas this winter. 

Reminding us how fashion is bouncing back from the last few years with aplomb, the Fall 2022 runways made a case for the industry’s hearty resilience. And while we won’t solve the world’s problems with a new pair of boots or a tailored coat, maybe those things will help us to draw on the collective courage of designers who continue to create impeccable clothes despite everything, and face this changing world with confidence.
