Pink velvet curtains on the dressing rooms, beautifully set out clothing racks and cheerful, knowledgeable staff are clear signs you’re in RUBY territory. Early warning; if you were planning on saving those pennies in your pocket, you may want to walk the other way, as the clothing here is hard to resist. Right at home in the Old Bank Arcade, RUBY mixes the old with the new in an effortless display of contemporary fashion that’s fun, playful, elegant and charming all at the same time.
A favourite with NZ women since its inception some years ago, businesswomen from nearby offices come in to browse the racks at lunchtimes, and mother/daughter combos stop in on their afternoon shopping trips. Stocking both their namesake label as well as Liam, RUBY makes sure to accommodate both the glam dressers as well as the understated corporate folk who are after staple pieces to mix and match and love for a long time. Soft palette tones are accentuated by the punchy patterns that keep RUBY top of its game when it comes to contemporary fashion.
Needing something small for a gift? Why not try RUBY’s own belts, hats, nail polish and accessories, all make those last minute gift buying moments so much easier.
