THE TENTH STATE, NEDLANDS
Ugh, you know those annoying people who are good at
everything? The Tenth State kind of reminds us of them. But
after one lick of their violet cupcakes – yes, like the flower
– and an eyeful of giftware like their cute teacups and
vases, we forgive them their over-achievements. Also, they
have a knack for stocking all our Perth obsessions – Mama
Tran’s banh mi, La Paleta’s Mexican-inspired popsicles, and
Rawsome goodies, all under one very attractive roof? All
right, all right, tall poppy, keep on growin’.
BANKER CAFE, FREMANTLE
If we’re ever feeling a bit lame, we’ll be sure to loiter at
this new Freo store. It’s so cool, we can feel our street cred
rising just by standing there. It’s a bit of a one-stop-shop on
its own, with clothes, jewellery, colourful homewares and
even a terrarium garden, but given that it’s also home to
a cafe, serving coffee, cold-pressed juice, light meals and
donuts... it’d be rude not to.
TEA FOR TU, NORTHBRIDGE
This bou-tea-que (geddit?!) is kinda like accidentally
wandering into someone’s house – ‘someone’ being either
p The new Sunglass Society on Napoleon Street in Cottesloe stocks a range of designer sunnies from
the likes of Celine and Lanvin. They’re exxy, but worth springing for.
p Trip down south? Check out Wellington Store in Bunbury. It’s a bit of a departure from the southwest
surfy style, but every bit as covetable, with awesome streetwear from the likes of Zulu & Zephyr, and
House of Harlow 1960. There are whispers of a sister store opening in Claremont, too...
p We were devo when Bobby & Olive, that cute boutique near Luna on SX, shut down. But news that the shop has
been reincarnated has turned our screaming-emoji-face upside down. Find their signature, locally designed clothes
at their new store on Marine Terrace, Fremantle – only downside is they’ve said buh-bye to the in-store cafe.
p Mt Lawley locals just got a bit sexier, with the news Kookai has landed on Beaufort Street. You can always find
a perfect party dress with their jewel hues and saucy silhouettes.
p It’s a little embarrassing how much of our wardrobe comes from General Pants – like, we know of more shops,
we swear! But it’s hard to stray when they nail cool and wearable fashion oh-so -perfectly. We foresee plenty more
90s-inspired streetwear landing in our ’robes, with the news GP has opened at Lakeside Joondalup.
p New kids Erin Vanhaeften and Kate Wilks are set to fill the hole in our hearts left by Leederville design Mecca
Studio Bomba, with new store On A Whim, dedicated to their fashion label of the same name.
p Just walking into Gypsiana makes us feel like we’ve touched down in Morocco. Its Leederville shop has closed
down but you can find it stationed permanently in Garden City now, as well as Osborne Park.
p Careful, Claremont Quarter: Times Square is making sure you’re not the only reason to visit the western ‘burbs.
Check out new shops The Flower Bench and R&D Speed Shop, plus the aforementioned Wellington Store.
OUR FAVE SHOP/CAFE HYBRIDS
the bright clothes
from the likes of Alice McCall and
House of Cards, plus design journals and gifts, you can
settle in for a cuppa and a cake, served on cute vintage
plates at the teeny tea parlour downstairs.
KATE & ABEL AT
MANY 6160, FREMANTLE
Ok, Many 6160, we give you so much love we’re starting
to feel like that creepy guy at the bar breathing on your
neck. But why don’t you stop being so cool, huh? Kate &
Abel Cafe, run by the very well-heeled (and headed –
they own the eponymous millinery next door) Kate
Hulett and Matt Bale, stocks local coffee from Big Brew,
and loose leaf from Freo’s Chai Baba, plus toast from
Bread in Common.
he likes of Alice McCall and
INSET Tea for Tu.
