Better than a coffee
Time for a study break? UWA students know a trip to
neighbouring boutique Hero & Leander will pep them
up more than a coffee ever could. It’s all sophisticated
homewares with a splash of bohemian rhapsody by way of
bright clothing, jewellery, gifts and toys. For Spring, mother-
and-daughter co-owners Lisa and Skye Worth predict
the Jolly and Deen range of jewellery, Glasshouse range
of candles and diffusers, and Have You Met Miss Jones
homewares will fly off the shelves. By the way, it’s not just
for students. “The age difference between my mum and I
allows us to cater for the 20-somethings as well as women
closer to my mum’s age – without giving that away!” says
Skye. After your stint of retail therapy, she recommends
heading to fellow Hampden Road joint BouBar for a tasty
lunch and coffee. See, isn’t that better than an instant capp
in the library? 23 Hampden Road, Nedlands.
Aus label Saba has opened a new flagship store in Carillon City – we love the classic bustiers and chic metallic
pleated skirts. H O U S E W A R E S, the Osborne Park homewares store, set up a pop-up on Beaufort Street – and
it’s been so successful, they’re making it permanent. Speaking of Beaufort Street, we have some good news for the
boys: you can now join your girlfriends at Mt Lawley fave Department. Under new direction, it’s stocking a bunch of
cool men’s labels for the first time ever. Happy shopping!
With Melbourne Cup and spring festivals coming up, we have an excuse
to dress our oft-neglected noggins. Here’s where we’ll be stocking up.
1. HATS BY FELICITY. Felicity Brown was plucked from the outback
to show at New York Fashion Week this September after she blogged
about a NYFW show. We weren’t surprised – her colourful creations are
truly one-of-a -kind, some made with Broome pearls and hand-collected feathers from wild birds.
2. HAT BOX GALLERY. You know you’ve hit the big time when you’re asked to dress a royal.
Milliner Reny Kestel dressed the regal head of Zara Philips last year – as well as those of the bulk of
Perth’s socialites. We love her architectural, avant-garde pieces.
3. KATE AND ABEL . It’s not exactly Melbourne Cup-style frills, but we looove the St Saviour panama and felt
hats made by duo Kate Hulett and Matt Bale. Their weekend hobby of making hats for London markets quickly
caught the discerning eyes of fashionable Londoners – and within a year of conception, the hats were stocked
in Topshop’s flagship store on Oxford Circus, and in Anthropologie on Regent Street. Now, Kate and Matt have
crossed to our shores so we can procure their custom-made hats made right on premises. We’ll be picking up
one – or four – for a season of festival hopping.
