Rare Perfumes Exquisite Skincare Luxury Candles

Founded in 1989 by Denise L’estrange-Corbet and Francis Hooper, WORLD is the first truly progressive fashion brand to come out of New Zealand. Designing and hand making each collection here in New Zealand.

WORLD’s philosophy has always been about design and quality, and their collections sit in the museums in Auckland, Te Papa, Wellington, National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. WORLD was awarded with the first dedicated retrospective of a New Zealand fashion label at the Auckland Memorial Museum, opened by then Prime Minister Helen Clarke, in 2005.

Whilst WORLD has always been an emporium of ideas including the realm of beauty the WORLD Beauty concept wasn’t defined until 2006 and has grown to include rare perfumes, exquisite skincare, luxury candles alongside objet d'art from every corner of the globe, all collectable and desirable, all bearing the WORLD logo of quality and collectability. Many of the brands hold incredible historical significance Cire Trudon candles made in France since 1643, Santa Maria Novella apothecary skincare founded in 1621 in Florence, perfumes created for Jacqueline Kennedy and Grace Kelly amongst many contemporary revolutionaries of scent and skincare.

WORLD has 6 locations across New Zealand.
3 in Auckland and 1 in Wellington, Christchurch and Queenstown, as well as an online store and wholesale clients across the globe.
