What exactly makes a good clothing boutique? Besides the obvious things – brands, fit out, etc – a good clothing store is really evaluated by our individual perceptions. What old mate Joe Bloggs down the road classes as a ‘good store’ could easily be seen as the exact opposite from either you or I. However, with many different options out there, we have to say there are definitely a select few that we’d class as being some of the best.
With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of the top 5 Sydney boutiques that sell online. Check them out below:
CapsuleWith three brick and mortar stores throughout Sydney, Capsule offers an eclectic range of street wear and high end brands from all over the globe. Featuring a clean, minimal aesthetic, Capsule offers its online users a very eye-pleasing, no-fuss online store – but it would be nice if we could find the shipping times though. Help, anyone?
