This year more than ever before women are looking for comfort.
Easy fitting clothes, comfortable shoes or boots, belts that enhance the figure and a piece of statement jewellery to pull their look together.
Whether you embrace Classic Clothing or Classic Clothing with a twist, you’re a very Casual Dresser or love a bit of Boho Chic then this season Paula Ryan has your back.
Paula talks about the Collection.
“While there are no abrupt changes to this Winter, I am seeing a relaxed, sporty influence in American fashion which translates to Australasia very well.
For now, we are focusing on the four main winter groups. Boho is a mix of 70’s American inspired looks, that have mostly been influenced this time by Italian designers who have embraced the mix of fabrics, fringes and the fun of layering of various fabrics worn with boots.
Our offerings make it easy for the wearer to tone the look down into simple separates, or layer full-on in accordance with the trend.
Our glamour offering centres around the Palazzo Print and silk Autumn Print in soft pieces that embrace gold accessorising and look excellent under black outer layers. Designers such as Roberto Cavalli and Dolce and Gabbana have always led the way inspirationally in this theme.
City suiting from the pant suit to the pencil skirt corporate suit in black and white have a series of black dresses and separates that team well for women seeking looks in this category.
I am really liking cosy sweaters, jackets and coats that collectively create stunning weekend country inspired looks using natural fabrics. This has become very mainstream for winter wardrobes.”
It is no surprise that Paula has always pulled the rug out from under our feet with looks that we love. Some are not for us but there is always something there for every taste.
Sometimes though it is great to go out of our comfort zone and try something new.
It doesn’t have to be all the way but dipping our toes into a new look can breathe fresh air into our Winter Wardrobe.
As always Paula’s Style Magazine is an absolute winner. Hopefully we sent you one, or you can pick one up in the Koru Club Lounge, your favourite hair salon or beauty parlour.
We do have it online if you want to click the link above.
There are some great photos of Paula showing you what her personal picks for the season are. She is very keen on the College Preppy look that features quite strongly in the magazine.
She also loves the Sexy Look. Boho Chic and the Classic all of which are slimming and an everyday No Brainer. To be fair a little bit of something new will make your wardrobe and you sing.
A great outfit starts with the perfect pairing of footwear. Belts, bags and travel accessories which will become wardrobe investments, nobody does this as well as Paula Ryan who has all of these elements in her collections, whether Winter or Summer everything works together. Out and about casual dressing calls for easy-care flat footwear, cross body bags and stretch belts.
Paula’s by word is “We dress bodies, not ages.”
Everything in the Collection is wearable and ageless. It’s just how you put it all together.
With fibre twice as soft as cotton, MicroModal is the cornerstone of Paula’s collections, unquestionably every woman’s comfort fabric. Knitted in Italy, the garments have a superb drape and a smooth and sensuous feel.
Her New Zealand Merino can’t be beaten for its quality, soft and never scratchy with excellent stretch properties, machine washable and a unique ability to breath.

Winter’s cold blasts call for outer layers that suit varying weather patterns. From snow cosy to lightweight drizzle layers, we now need more than a single option.
Some coats leap out as luxurious. Paula Has two personal favourites.
“Try Christmas in Wisconsin or London. Even Christmas in Queenstown mid-winter when your raincoat will be as useful as a bicycle in the snow”.
Paula speaks from experience and has re-created two high winter styles for travellers. “There’s nothing quite like looking and feeling luxurious in the extreme conditions of winter”, says Paula. “There are two styles that work for me every time I travel towards the cold. I wear the Faux Fur Trimmed Coat and pack the Ultra Lite Quilted Puffer into its bag (16cm x 20cm). However, in the event of train travel I keep the puffer bag close at hand. It doubles perfectly as a blanket on board. My first fur trimmed coat has been my favourite for ten years and looks the part entering any event or restaurant. I’ve put them straight back into the collection and in the newer, ever flattering colour of Navy”.
“Remember Navy looks beautiful over black underpinnings and less serious than black. The puffer coat is lightweight and reversible, navy on one side and black on the other with zip pockets on both sides, ideal for travel and preventing pickpockets”.
If you spend a little bit of time with a nice cup of coffee, tea or a glass of wine and study the magazine it will give you a good grounding of what you might like to take home.
