Taika in New York City

New pictures had just popped up on icebreakernz‘s Twitter:

Jemaine Clement @jemainec and Taika Waititi @taikawaititi at our New York City #TouchLab store today!

Full size photos here.

Icebreaker, the New Zealand made, merino wool outdoor clothing brand, posted an article on their blog about the event:

It’s Wednesday: Time for Business Socks?

Our New York City TouchLab store opens tomorrow (Wednesday, 1 December), and today while we were working out a few kinks and getting ready for the VIP party and grand opening, who do we see walk in? Some scruffy bearded guy, and someone who looks like a former Icebreaker model.

Jo Lewis, our retail designer, recognized the Conchord behind the beard and welcomed Jemaine Clement and director/actor/comedian/writer Taika Waititi (who tried on all sorts of Icebreaker outerwear). Jemaine said he and his FOTC bandmate Bret McKenzie wore a lot of Icebreaker baselayer during their shoots to stay warm.

We’re very excited to see Taika’s new movie, “Boy“, open globally. Both gents were ever charming and posed for photos with the Icebreaker crew, check them out below!

We hope to see them back tomorrow for the festivities.
