After 22 years in Ponsonby Road, with their fashion stores and beauty stores being separated, WORLD has now combined both stores into its large, new premises at 179 Ponsonby Road.

Located in the iconic heritage space, on the corner of Franklin and Ponsonby Roads, the latest luxury boutique is in keeping with WORLD's latest retail developments.

Enlivening this beautiful corner brick site, it combines modernity, colour, antiques and collectables. Set around the lit marble window walls opposite the brightly hued Piet Mondrian inspired wall, it creates an intimate and elegant private boutique emporium.

The beauty department within the store has been extended, with clean and modern floating shelves that appear to levitate from the walls. New objet d'art from expert Meredith Lee of European Antiques include items from France, Russia and Italy, which nestle easily with the modern neon art from artist Otis Frizzell.

The store opens with the new Spring Summer Collection 15/16 for both men and women, and includes the largest and most extensive collection of luxury niche fragrances including Creed, Amouage, Orto Parisi and Arquiste.

WORLD continues to exclusively carry the entire Aesop hair and skincare range in New Zealand.

There is something for everyone, with candles from exquisite historic French candle makers Cire Trudon to egg white facial soap, from the Alexandre Girard hand painted wooden dolls to German badger hair shaving brushes from Muhle.
