MENA Kaftans to LOVE

No longer just a beach throw-over, the kaftan has become one of our most popular dresses for these glorious summer months. We started introuducing kaftans into our MENA collections about two years ago and they've become so popular we increased the number of styles and they have now become a staple part of our seasonal collections, particularly spring/Summer. The kaftan is making a big comeback with international designers and they'll be around for a while to come. The elegant simplicity of the cut, the relaxed, looser style makes them a hit for summer weddings or cocktails. Combined with the right accessories they make a very regal, statement dress. We love that our signature MENA tropical prints can be splashed all over or in placements without seams getting in the way.

MENA & Shahana Jewels

MENA collaboration with Shahana Jewels

We were delighted to launch our latest collection at our new Grey Lynn store recently to a packed-out audience of MENA fans who were treated to an in-store fashion show, Ariki Vodka cocktails and giveaways. Our latest ‘Salamasina’ collection featuring our latest signature vibrant print dresses, kaftans and separates also included a collaboration on a matching jewellery range with local jewellery brand Shahana Jewels

We first met Shahana Jewels designer, Shehana Kimiangatau in 2016 when the jewellery designer offered some of her pieces to accessorise our MENA fashion show fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity. This time round Shehana wanted to design some pieces to specifically complement one of MENA’s signature prints in the Salamasina range. Shahana 'Salamasina' includes a ring, necklace, earrings and bracelet in a beautiful, limited edition intricate tropical palm design.

This collection is named after the Samoan Queen Salamasina (15th Century) – one of the most famous female figures in Samoan social history. It’s a fitting name as our brand has always been about strong women, respect of their Pacific heritage and service to others. Values that they’ve inherited from our mother Mena Loheni. ‘We love the intricate pieces that Shehana designed – they are very unique and sophisticated pieces that complement our new prints so well.

MENA’s new Salamasina collection is now available in-store and online and we will also be selling the exclusive Shehana 'Salamasina' jewellery as well.
