Guest edit: Wallace Chapman

In our new guest edit series we ask stylish Dunedinites and ex-Dunedinites to go shopping and tell us what's in their bag! 


We're stoked to present our first guest curator.... Wallace Chapman. You may remember Wallace from his time as a DJ on Radio One. Now Wallace Chapman is a radio and TV broadcaster, and public speaker. He hosts a ‘pub politics’ show called Back Benches on Prime, and Sunday Mornings with Wallace Chapman on Radio Live. He also heads up the rambunctious men's panel Monday mornings on Good Morning TVONE. He wrote his first book for Penguin in June called ‘Don’t just do something, sit there’ – a manifesto for the slow living life. 

We asked Wallace what his favourite things or memories about Dunedin are. "There are many favourite things about Dunedin. And truth be told if my work took me there, part of me would still love to live in Dunedin. Memories? Buying my first pair of Bikkembergs at Plume, Wednesday pint nights at Fuel café, seeing DJ Vadim at Bath Street, sitting in the sun after a crazy night at the Pink Flat, seafood chowder and a wine at Nova. Many great memories."


What's in your shopping cart from Dunedin Online, Wallace?  

I would go shopping at Silkbody for a silk scarf  - I love silk.

I would get a hollow rock ring for Tabitha from Salisbury boutique.

I adore these alice journals from the Cuckoo's Nest Boutique.

I would treat myself to some Dunedin hi fidelity from Design Build Listen.

And I’d buy a dozen Green Man beers to bring to Auckland!
