Reservoir st Neighborhood

A nice piece went up today on the Qantas website about the precinct in Surry Hills where our new store is located.
The 'Sogo' neighborhood is definitely interesting, with a great mix of small businesses, restaurants, cafes, and shops.

SS10 Grensons - 2nd Sneak Peek!

A few more of the new season Grensons.

Fragrance now available at The Cloakroom

We are very excited to announce that we will now be stocking a select range of fragrances at The Cloakroom.
For the Sydney store we have selected 2 fragrances from boutique supplier agence de parfum, who are undoubtley at the forefront of bringing niche and small brand Eurpoean fragrances into Australia.

The first fragrance is the Eau De Gloire from Parfum D'Empire. Moroccan born perfumier Marc-Antoine Corticchiato is known for using opulent raw materials coveted thoughout the centuries because of their refinement, medicinal appeal, magic and erotic properties.
Following the scented trail of Napoleon Bonaparte, the Eau De Gloire comes from historical studies of the Emperor and references Bergamont, Neroli, Anise, Leather, Tabacco and Oak Moss among other things.

The second is Idole from Lubin, one of the most revered French perfume houses. Pefumer to the royal courts over the centuries in countries such as France, England and Russia, Lubin was revived in the early 1990s. Now with the release of a handful of fragrances, it again sits in its rightful place at the pinnacle of perfume houses.
Idole is a seductive fragrance very well suited to being worn after dark. Its distinct mix of sweetness and spice make it a fragrance that will make an impression.

At $190 each these 2 fragrances are excellent value and more importantly will give you a standout signature scent that's sure to be memorable.
Great for yourself or as a gift.

*The Brisbane store will be stocking its own fragrances in the next few weeks.

It's always great to get local support and we're very appreciative to the guys at TWOTHOUSAND (especially Nadia) for their recent write up.
The number of direct visits we've had from the piece has been amazing.

Thanks guys

Sydney Launch

It's been a busy week for us both but our launch on Thurs night made it all worth it.
Thanks to everyone who came along and helped us christen the Surry Hills store. A special thanks to those who made the trip from Bris to be there on the night (Eleisha, Rebecca, Adrian & Ingrid, Liz, Sue & Tony and Roni).

The store is looking fantastic and Josh has received some great new stock this week including new shirts, jackets and a drop of our navy t-shirts in 100% merino wool (NZ).

Our 'house models', James and Roni, now adorn the walls and it was great that Roni was able to make a guest appearance on the night also programming the night's tunes. Unfortunately James's schedule didn't allow for him to join us, but we had a few drinks in his stead.

A special thanks goes to Caroline Bligh and Stoneleigh for their support on the night which ensured everyone's glasses stayed well topped up til quite late.

The Australian - we've gone national!

It was a very exciting moment to open The Australian today and see a huge photo and half page on our new Sydney store.
It's not often in life that these things happen, and although they've already started printing tomorrow's newspaper and today's will be rubbish in no time, these fleeting moments do provide something that is both very humbling and quite satisfying.
Many thanks to Georgina and Damien for their fantastic support.
