When Apartment and violent Green were forced out of Albert Street [because of Cross River Rail resumptions], they decided to join forces. It made sense, after all: they both got their start in Elizabeth Arcade back in the 2000s and shared a lease together.
They thought that they could create something greater than the sum of their parts. With Double Double, they have. In an old first level tenancy above the Westpac bank on Queen Street mall, the store has a simple layout, with large windows overlooking the mall.
Double Double stocks many of the brands known from Apartment and Violent Green – think APC, Commes des Garçons, Common Projects, WTAPS, and Neighbourhood – but plenty of new names too, like Opening Ceremony, Neul and Ffixxed.
