Australian label Perks and Mini have just opened their very first standalone location in Melbourne. The space will stock both P.A.M. men’s and women’s collections, alongside a well-curated selection from likeminded labels such as Gosha Rubchinskiy, Bernhard Willhelm, visvim, Cav Empt, WTAPS and NEIGHBORHOOD. A selection of books as well as a growing collection of records from labels The Trilogy Tapes, PAN Records, Workshop Records, Born Free Records and others will also be on sale at the new store as well.
The brand describes its new digs as follows:
Populated by a series of structures hand built by Misha Hollenbach, the space adopts a DIY, vandalized reiteration of brutalist design, viewed through a membrane of formal classicism. As with much of P.A.M.’s output, a tension between beauty, chicness and “the street” seems to occur naturally in the new space.
