Since its inception in 2008, Company of Strangers has seduced a cult following with a proudly 100% New Zealand made range of high-quality garments, leather and jewellery. Referencing art, architecture and rock ‘n’ roll muses as inspiration, Company of Strangers symbolises the ability to appear darkly subversive, yet still capable of being romantic.
Garments are meticulous yet experimental reflecting a modern simplicity, combining luxury fabrics with contemporary functionality. Particular consideration is taken to create timeless silhouettes that are strong but sensual, creating pieces that are adaptable to any wardrobe and any season. We have hand selected the best local craftsmen to manufacture our products to ensure the highest quality is maintained. Our garments are pre-washed and quality tested in house by us before they arrive to you. What you see is what you get, these are investment pieces that are built to last.
Company of Strangers can be found in many fashion boutiques throughout New Zealand and Australia, including our flagship store in our hometown Dunedin, New Zealand. The Company of Strangers Team- Sara Munro, Amelia Hope and Diane Rohtmets also reside in Dunedin where they Dream, Design and Plot in South Island isolation.
Born from a love of heirloom Jewellery, mementos and trinkets, Designer Sara Munro and long-time collaborator, Jeweller Anne Mieke Ytsma teamed together to create a range of Jewellery that captures the emotive and slightly eccentric. Launched in 2008, Company of Strangers Jewellery produces a range of beautiful, handcrafted rings, necklaces and bracelets.
Cast in Sterling Silver, beat up heirloom jewellery is re-invented; the modern and traditional are fused together in Gold and tarnished finishes, embracing the sentimental without being quixotic.
In 2013 Company of Strangers Jewellery launched the ‘Classics’ range. It features a culmination of some of our most revered and sought after pieces, such as the iconic ‘Till Death Do us Part Ring, Pawnshop Ring and BFF necklace.
