For everyone who’s had their eye on a pair of George Keburia cat eye sunglasses but has been feeling too afraid to lay down cash without trying them on first—great news.
Sydney’s newest designer concept boutique will have you drooling over George’s scarlet-coloured lenses in the flesh, and a whole treasure trove of other edgy threads like leather flats with cowboy buckle details, Avant Garde tailoring, quilted track pants, art t-shirts and pink PVC harnesses.
NOLM launched first as an online boutique in 2017, sporting a serious edit of some under the radar emerging designers that you would be hard pressed to find in store anywhere in Australia. Now they’ve opened a bricks-and-mortar one-stop-shop in Chippendale, a stone’s through from other cool, ground-breaking Sydney institutions like White Rabbit Gallery and LP’s Quality Meats.
Designed by interior architect Rod Faucheux of Loop Creative, the super futuristic, hard-to-miss shopfront is veiled by a lemon-hued PVC curtain, and inside walls are clad in stamped aluminium, silver sheeting and mirrors.
NOLM stands for 'No One Like Me'—and it's here that you will uncover the sort of items and investment pieces that will immediately refresh your wardrobe and seriously up the style ante. Everything here is a little street, a bit Tokyo and a lot unconventional in the best way possible.
Guys and girls who have been long-term fans of the sartorial wonderland that is Opening Ceremony will appreciate Toga Pulla shoes detailed with cowboy spurs and buckles, Justine Clenquet chain sunglasses, Kara backpacks and Martine Rose raincoats.
NOLM will help you discover new need-to-know players too, like of-the-moment Paris-based jewellery and accessories designer Stéphanie D’Heygere, who cut her teeth at Margiela and makes oversized hoops and body chains with faux flowers, cigarettes, and bananas.
