Hailing from Tāmaki Makaurau, with four existing stores in New Zealand, and major stockists across New Zealand and Australia, we're thrilled to announce the arrival of Deadly Ponies' first South Island store, located in the heart of Queenstown.

Deadly Ponies signature leather accessories fit in effortlessly amongst the local captivating artworks within our new space. Showcasing several renowned New Zealand artists, Deadly Ponies Founder, Steve Boyd, is proud to display an original 1950s watercolour by his late grandfather, Douglas Badcock, a celebrated Queenstown painter. The store also features a custom New Zealand wool rug developed especially for the store by Anoushka Akel.

“Each Deadly Ponies store is curated to reflect our passion for the arts, showcasing works and collector's pieces from around the world. I have always been drawn to Anoushka’s art, so was very excited to work with her on this project reinterpreting a piece from our private collection. Other notable features within this store include; Santa & Cole light fittings from Spain and a custom ottoman, handcrafted in Deadly Ponies signatureCalf Nappa leather.”

Founder and Creative Director, Liam Bowden

To mark this opening, we've paid homage to the Mountaineer Hotel, the original building foundation upon which our new store stands.

Designed in collaboration with London-based Graphic Designer, Paul Berges, Deadly Ponies’ new Mountaineer Blanket is a handcrafted blend of wool and cashmere, created to resemble a vintage Woolmark care label, and available in colourways, Shortbread and Amethyst.
