A la Plage
Walking into this tiny swimwear boutique in Hawthorn can be quite overwhelming. It's packed to the rafters with some serious options for ladies at the pool and it’s hard to know where to start. But once you do, you’ll have more than your fair share of togs to try, and they’ll encourage you to do so.
Don’t be shy in here, the staff prefer you try more rather than less and be sure that you find the right swimmers for your beach sojourn. And with full collections from Jets, Seafolly, Leluu, Ginja, Baku, Zimmermann, Tigerlily and several others, there’s bound to be a few things you’ll want. One-piece, two-piece, high waist, bustier cut, bandeau – this is one comprehensive collection of Australian swimwear.
They also stock a range of sportswear and a few poolside items such as kaftans and throws that double as towels. The trick at A la Plage is to go in ready to sort through the racks, because with such a tightly crammed selection of great options, you could easily miss your signature summer cosi, and that’s the last thing you want.
