If you’ve paid a visit to Collector Store already, you’ll no doubt remember your first few moments within its harmonious space.
Amongst the store’s collection of men’s and women’s fashion, accessories and homewares, there’s a sense of timeless design mixed with quirky playfulness. Tactile beauty and attention to detail are a common thread across the product range, inviting you to examine each product more closely as you forget about the world outside.
Of course, there are a number of elements that help create this – from the design of the space, to the lighting, right down to what’s playing over the speakers. But at the end of day, it’s all about one thing – the product – and Collector Store takes pride in its curated collection, featuring a unique edit of brands such as American Vintage, Beau Coops, Braun, Equipment and Grand Frank to name a few.
One Australian brand that Collector Store proudly supports is Romance Was Born, a contemporary fashion house that has become synonymous with creativity and collaboration since its inception in 2005.
Known for its imaginative pieces and eclectic designs, Romance Was Born is the work of talented design duo Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, who met while studying fashion design. After establishing the brand, the pair quickly became known for their exceptional design acumen and storytelling vision; leading the resurgence in the use of bold prints, embroidery, intricate beading and detailed sequinned elements.
Their latest collection, ‘Queen of the Night’, is all about a hypnotic mix of petals and plumage, and available at Collector Store this March - so don't miss it!
While you're in the store, you'll also discover the easy-to-wear (and easy-to-love) collections from Danish brands CustomMade and Baum und Pferdgarten. CustomMade appeals to the modern-minded and cosmopolitan woman who craves simple sophistication, and Baum and Pferdgarten offer a combination of classic styles and avant-garde pieces which can be mixed accordingly to the individual taste or occasion.
For the modern man, Collector Store offers a broad selection of brands across fashion accessories and skincare; including Scotch and Soda, Grand Frank, Banks, Les Basics and Mr Simple. Eclectic homewares, natural skincare and aromatherapy also abound the shelves, making it the perfect place to pick up a unique gift or something new for home.
