47 William Street
For outsiders, Sydney’s East is home to its affluent district and Paddington is its prime suburb. Within this leafy and lofty street scenery, lies a store that prefers to be incognito, though overhead is a street rod store sign painted ‘POEPKE’. House in a decorative Victorian terrace, storekeepers Milla and Grace will welcome you to the space that is both tranquil yet modestly foreshadowed by the most delicate artisanal designed pieces from an international selection of venerable, fabric focused designers working today. In Sydney, it is a common rarity to find Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten come together with accessories by Lyn and Tony, Bernhard Willhelm and Christian Wijnants under one beautiful abode. This boutique certainly belongs in the Nationalestraat but it doesn’t. It is here in Sydney.
