Completely LOVE this new trendy clothing for boys! 
Say hi to Kristen from LAWSON

I am 22 years old and am the director and designer for LAWSON. From a young age I loved fashion, and looking back I was very creative throughout my childhood, graduating in 2011 with a Bachelor of Design (Fashion). After travelling for a year, I came home to start my girls wear label Ida Rose, which was closely followed by my boys wear label LAWSON.

LAWSON is proudly designed and made right here locally in Mount Maunganui. Specialising in groovy shorts, leggings, vests and tees in fresh prints and comfy styles. Everything is handmade in small runs, with lots of love - providing your boy with exclusive, quality, designer clothing he deserves.

The LAWSON Facebook page was launched at the end of 2013 and has received a great response!

Explorer Shorts

I just knew LAWSON was the right name for my boys wear label. I loved how it looked and the family ties it entails. LAWSON was my Great Grandfather’s name and also is the middle name of my brother who passed away at birth. I wanted to do something in remembrance of him, and this was the perfect creative way of doing so.

Let's Go Shorts

In three words...

Being New Zealand made is a great point of difference and people are really embracing a brand that is home grown. I design, pattern-draft and make all of my products right here in Mount Maunganui. Although LAWSON is New Zealand made I have chosen to keep prices affordable and accessible.

Mustard Chevron Shorts

Current favourite...
Coming into the cooler months my favourite LAWSON style would have to be the Neon Groove Pants. They are a drop crotch style pant made out of a soft stretch in charcoal marle with neon stripes. The Neon Groove Pants are perfect all year round, and in winter over your boy’s merino leggings.

I start work first thing in the morning and power through until lunchtime where I will take a break and pop out of the house for a bit or catch up with a friend. I then work through until about 9pm at night.

For me, I love being able to be creative at my own pace, and I can take breaks when I need them. It often means that I will work odd hours - but I get through lots of work and the outcome is wonderful.

Have people in your life who catch your vision, and never doubt your talent and dreams!

I enjoy spending time with friends over delicious food at some of the great local restaurants the Mount has to offer. It’s so beautiful here – it’s hard not to relax!

Cross Pants

From here... 
I have my first Auckland market at the Devonport Art & Craft Markets coming up on 6 April. This is exciting for me and it will be great to meet some of my Auckland customers.
