Somewhere, the aptly named store, continues our fascination with vertical retail, reminding you you are somewhere in Melbourne. To be more precise it’s above Marais on the second floor of the Royal Arcade, facing Little Collins Street. Heavy on the Swedes, it is cool, calm and refined, like they are in our perfect Scandinavian dreams.
Clever and ironic plays on dagginess and ends up being cool, and prices for the most are completely accessible for the designers and brands Somewhere has picked up on. Men's and women's labels include pieces by Resteröds, Velour, Suit, Our Legacy, Royal Republiq and The Horse shoes, and jeans by Dr.Denim and Cheap Monday. And though many of these labels can be found elsewhere, Somewhere has managed to curate the collections in an approachable way in a welcoming, light and airy space.
The busy team have also put together an online store, Someplace, and don't forget to visit their older sister Somedays, if you are ever in Sydney. Once you have made the climb remember to take look at their contemporary gallery space, which showcases emerging Australian artists.
