Like the shoes she designs, Sarah Street’s wardrobe is classic, adaptable and well made.
Sarah Street’s appreciation for minimalism and good work extends from her wardrobe to her designs.
Sarah Street entered a world of unknowns when she launched her new shoe brand, Bronwyn, around the start of Aotearoa’s most recent pandemic shutdown.
Earlier this year, she completed her former senior designer position at Mi Piaci Shoes, taking time before devoting her expertise and energy to the design and production of her own line of wellness and wellness footwear. -to be.
The shoes are made by a family-owned and ethical SMETA accredited factory in Brazil, and the leather comes from tanneries accredited by the Leather Working Group.
The brand is named after and inspired by Street’s late mother. The range is small and versatile, consisting of a basic collection of four styles, available year round. The seasonal capsule collections contain a few alternative colors and styles.
* Simple shapes, subtle details and good quality fabrics fill Jane Eppstein’s wardrobe

* Peta Mathias’ fabulous style perfectly represents her joie de vivre
* SALA yoga founder Sarah Lindsay has a wardrobe full of thoughtful clothes
Street, who is also responsible for the design of children’s brands Pretty Brave and Cry Wolf Child, loves her clothes the same way she designs her shoes – minimal, shapely and practical.
She shares an approach to clothing that is common among working moms: buy items that are classic, adaptable, easy to maintain, and even easier to put on.
Five things I own and love
I bought this Acne Studios coat at a store in New York City on a year-long shopping trip. This was my first real investment, so I took a few days to commit to it, but I’m so glad I did. It’s so minimalist in structure and aesthetics, and its weight is perfect for New Zealand winters.
I actually have this Wynn Hamlyn yin & yang knit in two colors and I love it. This is one of my favorite sweaters.
I also bought this Frankie Shop blazer in NYC. I love the oversized boyfriend cut, and it’s now my go-to. Over the years, I have found that the pieces I am interested in are definitely more of a basic wardrobe – timeless in shape and color and can be worn in so many ways.
I love this oversized Paris Georgia shirt, one of my favorite things to wear. It can be dressy or casual and is so easy to maintain – which is perfect as I have two little boys chasing after.
The “Cas” sandals are the first pair of Bronwyn shoes I bought. It’s more than exciting to be able to buy something of my own brand, something that I have dreamed of for so long. I feel like this is the perfect sandal to pair with any of my key wardrobe pieces. I love the fancy hardware and oversized chunky rand, padding underfoot, and the soft square toe.
Three things I would like to own
Herman Miller Chiclet loop chair
I would love to own a pair of these beautiful chairs, they have such a beautiful silhouette.
Handbag from afar
This bag is just a dream. I love that it’s a perfect amount of ’90s minimalism, structure, and sophistication.
Ferm Living glassware
I am obsessed with Ferm Living, especially their glassware. I would be happy with any set from them, but for starters, the champagne saucer set.
