Time Out Melbourne

This boutique store will sell you womenswear... and teach you French

This store was made for those that delve in quirky delights and treat clothes like treasures. If you admire Will Smith’s dress-sense circa Fresh Prince of Bel Air, then this quaint hub has everything from matching bomber jackets to cork shoes, fluorescent patterns from Melbourne artist Shuh, and the always fun ALL Knitwear from the USA.

Oui, it is true. If you can't get enough of the vibrant coloured and patterned clothing the store has to offer, which is plentiful, or the eccentric sculptures and textile work, then you can sign up for Dagmar Rousset's French School. There are six levels to start at and it's not just for beginners – Dagmar Rousset will help you polish off your French skills. Plus, you'll get 10% off all products in store if you join. Soon you’ll be reading Le Petit Prince and rapping like it’s 1989.
