Barangaroo has set itself up to become Sydney’s hottest Shopping Precinct, with the introduction of some of Sydney’s most popular Fashion boutiques like Collector Store and Fashion stores.
Old-school craftsmanship and modern style combine with the array of buzzing eateries, bars, and cafes to create a village-esque destination unlike any other in Sydney. Just a six-minute walk from Sydney’s CBD, visitors can now discover specialty local and international designers, tailoring, and unique gifts among the pedestrian-only streets, laneways and harbourfront of The Streets of Barangaroo. Pop in between mid-week meetings or spend a weekend indulging in the full experience: morning coffee, hair make-over, spot of shopping and lunch on the harbourfront.
The Standard Store is the latest retailer to open, joining The Waiting Room, Collector Store, Shirt Bar, Blown Lux, Optique and the world’s first-ever David Jones boutique concept. TITLE Music Film Books, BELANCÉ and others land between now and spring.
Husband and wife team Nicola and Orlando Reindorf are behind the tightly curated collection of sought-after labels, accessories and lifestyle must-haves at The Standard Store. Buying trips several times a year to Europe, Scandinavia and the US ensure the store is edited to reflect the individual fingerprint of The Streets of Barangaroo. This is one of the only Australian retailers to range Sessun brand from Marseilles; as well as Dutch house Humanoid; YMC; Folk; Sunspel; Universal Works; and Bellerose.
Originally from Melbourne, The Waiting Room stocks a balanced list of Scandinavian, European, American and local fashion and accessories. Find labels such as Royal Republiq, Samsøe & Samsøe, Reliquia Jewellery, as well as the first range releases of Trois Petit Points Rivsalt and HappySweedes.
Collector Store combines fashion and home at its store on The Streets of Barangaroo. It ranges an edited collection of must-have fashion for both men and women from brands such as CustomMade, Baum Pferdgarten, Romance Was Born, Scotch and Soda and American Vintage. There’s also homewares and gifts from seriously chic cushions to candles and essential beauty and spa.
Shirt Bar successfully pairs perfect-fitting business shirts with coffee and dark spirits. This is the second location for the quirky concept, which opened in Sydney’s Sussex Lane in 2011. Here, the food is more of a focus serving breakfast, lunch and bar snacks alongside tailoring and 150 whiskies. The watering-hole-shirt-store hybrid stocks brands such as Ganton, Jensen, and exclusive women’s label Louka + Sabina. Design your ideal shirt from scratch with a whisky or wine in hand for the ultimate tailor-made experience.
Blown Lux is the go-to location to look your best for those early-morning meetings and after-work events. The team of expertly-trained stylists can create your next signature look while you sip on a glass of sparkling. Choose from a full range of blowout styles including Bigger the Better, Upper Class for up-styles, or Date Night defined curls. Complete the look onsite with Blown Lux’s squad of make-up artists offering complete make-overs, touch-ups and eyelash applications.
Boutique optometry Optique is a sleek destination for designer frames and sunglasses sourced from around the world, with brands including Tom Ford, Oliver Peoples, Cutler and Gross, Lindberg, Moscot, Garrett Leight and Anne et Valentin.
The Streets of Barangaroo’s David Jones concept store is the first of its kind: a two-level boutique of cosmetics, shoes, accessories and fashion for men and women. Brands include Valentino, Michael Kors, Tony Bianco, Zimmermann, SABA, Viktoria + Woods, Camilla, Hugo Boss, Ted Baker, Paul Smith and Country Road among others. Customers can purchase online and collect the same day if ordered before 12pm.
Joining these over the coming months are TITLE Music Film Books and BELANCÉ.
BELANCÉ is a luxury men’s tailor and retail concept, combining the best international men’s lifestyle brands and a world-renowned made-to-measure service. Brands available include Kenzo, Maison Labiche, Krew du Optic, L-G-R, Qwstion and Von Röutte.
TITLE Music Film Books store brings together Australia’s largest independent retail collection of music, books and film under one roof. Classics live side by side with the new, the obscure, the out of print and the hard to find.
In 2016, The Streets of Barangaroo cemented itself as Sydney’s new food scene with the opening of Wulugul Walk’s 12 waterfront restaurants. Now, it’s time for fashion and lifestyle to take centre stage. The full line up of fashion and lifestyle retailers at The Streets of Barangaroo is detailed below with more to be announced over the coming months.
