Dagmar Rousset upped roots from its original shop on Gertrude Street and moved to a new space on Easey Street in Collingwood last week. Complete with Hamish Munro display pieces crafted from concrete, an abundance of Bonne Maison socks and founder/owner Julia Pound’s roaming, fluffy dog Teddy (to pat intermittently while browsing), Dagmar is back with all of its usual coveted labels plus a few welcomed additions. Cult favourites such as PAM, Anntian, 69 and Ayamé will now be rubbing shoulders with the likes of newcomers Primoeza and Eckhaus Latta.
With plans to host more exhibitions and installations than the Fitzroy space could handle, Pound is already waiting to see what the new store can offer local artisans. Pound explains that the relocation was “not a huge change, just a subtle shift” and that the new space will be a “tranquil oasis”. Customers can still expect to peruse racks of ready-to-wear pieces and meticulously designed accessories and jewellery, with the option to finish off the day with a French-language class alongside a complimentary glass of red.
