If Jean-Luc Godard and his various contemporary pop icons are your thing, you’d best get down to Alpha60 (formerly Alphaville – taken from Godard’s film of the same name). Great basics and special pieces have taken the brother-sister duo from having a small local label to being the next big thing in Australia; with several stores scattered throughout Melbourne and Sydney.
There’s one catch: you better like black. The specialty of the house is their almost exclusive use of the monochromatic palette. Made for men, women and both, the label is not without a sense of humour; their Flinders Lane store, for instance, has a giant crucifix lying on its side as a (not so) quiet nod to their St Paul’s Cathedral location.
