If you’ve been lusting after Realisation Par’s latest online collection, don’t miss the chance to shop the brand’s cult dresses IRL in Sydney for the first time. Founders Teale Talbot and Alexandra Spencer see the pop-up as a homecoming of sorts, as they’re now based in London and Los Angeles respectively.

White Story Double Bay
The Melbourne brand, which is a fixture on High Street in Armadale and has “Beach House” outposts in Sorrento and Noosa, is best-known for its crisp cotton shirting – the foundation item of the eight-year-old label. Now Sydneysiders can add its easy-wearing essentials to their wardrobes in time for summer. The Double Bay store is dressed in neutral shades of cream, grey, sand and crisp white. The boutique also stocks a curated range of antique jewellery and furniture, which is available for purchase. The Madeleine shirt and Nanna pants are some of founder Fiona Myer’s favourite pieces this season – they're fun, with a shimmery fabrication, but still very wearable.
