There is an elegant but laidback retro style to Leonard St. that enables the staple knits, bright jackets, vintage eyewear and delightfully handmade leather satchels to shine. With three shops around Melbourne, this local label by designer Amanda McCarthy is growing at quite a pace for good reason, and as such, it is a welcome addition to any shopping strip.

Offering up an eclectic vision of urban elegance, Leonard St. is one of those labels that can appeal to many different types. Championing originality in its choice of colour palatte and prints, the clothing is complemented by simple lines and flattering silhouettes.
