Melbourne is beautiful in Winter where we have the luxury of dressing for the season, layering up fine knits with Coats, scarves and beanies. It’s a great time to be in a city known for it’s food and shopping; a perfect time to explore the most major change to Shopping in Melbourne since the GPO building’s makeover 10 years ago.
Last month the GPO building realised it’s second incarnation as a block of shops lending itself to H&M as their flagship store in Austraila.
At the same time, a short walk across Little Bourke Street, Emporium Melbourne opened it’s doors joining Myer, David Jones and Melbourne Central in a neat undercover shopping hub.
Emporium Melbourne plays host to every well known Australian Designer store. Sass and Bide, Gorman and Willow share level 2 along with Saba and Skin and Threads.
For me it’s Menswear that is the most inspiring in Melbourne’s transformation. The Classic Aussie brands are all present but the addition of Japan’s Superdry, MUJI and Uniqlo add a layer to menswear that Melbourne was missing. All offering affordable basics like Uniqlo’s cashmere range seen below, currently retailing from $129
These luxurious knits teamed with Muji’s linen shirts are a great base to any gent’s layered winter wardrobe. While Uniqlo offer a rainbow of fruity colours I’d opt for the deep greens, greys and navy’s. They don’t shout at you and leave your coordinating jacket and shirt options room for variation.
I can’t wait to take my hubby on a date to the city to explore and shop this Winter.
