Newtown is known for its quirky, more alternative vibes and the fashion boutiques that have made their home here are no exception. The focus is very much on local, independent designers who are creating interesting collections for both men and women who like to take a few style risks.
This Melbourne label has set up shop on King Street, much to the delight of local shoppers. The brand is well-known for their clean aesthetic, with the brands focus on good design ensuring everything is both beautiful and functional. What makes the store really special is the space itself, stripped back and raw, it really is all about the clothes.
