Cloakroom pop-up/concept store

It's been all system go here in Brisbane working on our new store which is just about to officially open.
We've taken over a huge 180m2 space in the Wintergarden (on the Queen st mall) which we'll have until the end of Dec.
This gives us a chance to try out a sized-up Cloakroom warehouse/gallery/shop concept and should be loads of fun.
The only problem has been knowing how to go about the fit-out. Given the short term of the lease we had to try and stick to a pretty tight budget.
Much of the credit goes to 'Josh the Shopfitter' (not Cloakroom Josh) who has been full of smart ideas to help our vision become a reality.

We also worked with Alex Lotzerstain from Derlot on a new colour to powdercoat his beautiful 'Bolero' lamp shapes, which are scattered through the shop and help bring the space to life. Much better than the dirty fluros that we inherited with the space.
*These are the same lights as our Surry Hills store.

Thanks Alex!
