Regarding NZ clothing kopportunities, I'd recommend their garments made from possum/merino wool blends.
Just a simple jumper or sleeveless cardigan would be the go. The material is soft and cuddly and extremely warm, but doesn't really hold a shape of any sort. So it's good for après-ski, or quiet winter nights at home. I have a couple of pieces which I really like, but they are definitely not high fashion.
