A lively celebration of iconic kiwi brands and the pin-up girl era. Travel back with me to the 40 and 50s, and celebrate the heaven-sent knockouts of the period. The iconic Chelsea Golden Syrup tin has made it's way into kitchens across New Zealand since 1884. My Grandad has heaps of these tins lining his wood-workshops dusty shelves, holding everything from nails to screws, he must have eaten his fair share of pale treacle.
Sugar refining by-product turned crumpet topper!
The result, a sexy blend of nostalgia and kiwiana, of sensuality and consumability, and of the most enduring combination of all - sex and selling.
