The Anatomy of
Pe r th Forgive us the blatant stereotyping, but sometimes you gotta make sense
of the world by dividing it up. Whether you belong to one strain, are
a hybrid of a couple, or play against type, we give you tailored suggestions
on where to wine and dine, shop and play. Life decisions: sorted.

These immaculately turned-out creatures can
be seen blowing air kisses at premieres all over
Perth, posing for social galleries with an arch
of their perfectly groomed brows, or laden
with shopping bags on King Street. On the
days before pay day, they scurry into their airy
apartments, scowling over Vogue and Russh, or
adding the latest look from Poppy Delevingne
to their Pinterest boards.

sales, the social pages.
PLAYLIST Layered electro pop
from Kucka, Chela, Catlips and
model hybrid Natalie Daws.
WAT E RING HOLE Could new bar
Door 49’s entrance into high society
get any more farshun? Let’s see:
vintage-style keys were delivered
to the households of WA’s elite
by Uber Black chauffeurs. Each
key was numbered for exclusivity
and designed by Ae’lkemi’s Alvin
Fernandez. And there’s barely any
info online about the place, except
for social snaps of the inhumanly
photogenic. In short: nope. La Vie,
the ritzy champagne bar at Crown,
scores a close second.
SUN DAY MORNING BREKKIE Everything
about beachside joint Tropico is gorgeous, from
the curl-tonged patrons and artfully arranged
plates to the unfairly attractive wait staff (is that
you, former Scoop cover model and The Face
winner Olivia Donaldson, taking our cup?) The
Tenth State in Nedlands is another fave because,
apart from their delicious violet cupcakes and raw
treats, it doubles as an excuse to shop (duh!) for
shoes or imported fashion mags.
SPECIAL OCCASION DINNE R
The Flour Factory has recently
undergone a massive reno, and
is a hit with the style set. Why?
It’s equal parts glam and cutting
edge, its meat-heavy menu is
Atkins-approved, and the giant
windows facing Queen Street
show the plebs just how fabulous
its patrons are!
INSTA F E E D @stylevoyeur,
GROOMING Flaxen-haired babes head to Viva La Blonde,
a sunny – and notoriously booked-out – salon for seamless
extensions and brass-free highlights that would make Blake Lively
weep. For brunettes and redheads who baulk at Viva’s colour
discrimination, Newcastle Street’s Cision Hair is on speed dial.
They tend to the well-watched tresses of stars like Megan Gale
and Miranda Otto, so they know how to give hair a camera-
worthy gleam (hellooo, social pages!). Brows are tended to by
cult stylist Alison Jade in Cottesloe, while pampering is taken to
dizzying heights at Bodhi J’s glam new salon in Highgate.
RE TAIL T HE RAPY Um, everything? But local designer Poppy
Lissiman scores major points for her left-of-centre accessories, rife with
pop-culture references. The revamped Dilettante, with an uncluttered
industrial look, is in every fashionista’s little black book for its revolving
stock of cool labels, like Acne Studios, Rick Owens and Maison
Margiela. And Scarborough’s Sara Fox & Co is the go-to for casual
threads from American Vintage, Johnny Was and Frame Denim.
WOR KOUT Bulging
muscles aren’t farshun.
Instead, glamour girls head
to Xtend Barre at Pure
Moves in Cottesloe to get
the lithe, clothes-horsey
limbs they lust after.
PLAYT IME Fashionistas spend their
downtime posting pics from their latest
photo shoot to their blogs, or composing
the perfect flatlay for Instagram. After all,
their devoted followers are a demanding
bunch. December’s Polo in the City is also
marked in their diaries for an excuse to go
frock shopping and visit a milliner.
