SYDNEY

Year after year, Sydney is voted one of the world’s favourite travel destinations by both those who have already visited the city and those who have not. Anyone who has been there will consider this acclaim to be well-deserved.

Sydney offers an extraordinary climate, attractive, charming people and astonishing architecture.  But it also features a number of fine shopping areas with a wide range of characteristics from the formal, luxury styles to be found in the city centre to the more urban, surfer fashions that have emerged from the sport for which the city is so renowned.

The City Centre is home to leading fashion brands. In and around George Street, Pitt Street and Castlereagh Street and – running perpendicular to them – King Street and Market Street, shoppers can find brands such as ChanelHermès and Louis Vuitton. At Martin Place Giorgio Armani and Emporio Armani stand door-to-door with each other, and the Italian contingent is completed by Prada, which has a splendid store nearby. Just a few metres further south, near Hyde Park, stand the renowned David Jones department stores, featuring two stores – David Jones Market Street and David Jones Elizabeth Street – to which the people of Sydney flock regularly and which visitors should not miss. In the nearby pedestrian area of Pitt Street stand The Strand Arcade and the Queen Victoria Building, two beautiful historic buildings housing stores by renowned brands.

Everyone who goes to Sydney spends some time looking over the bay. In the waterfront area of The Rocks, on the way to the remarkable Sydney Harbour Bridge, shoppers will find a Gucci store on the ground floor of the Museum of Contemporary Art, and a DFS Galleria just opposite.

Further east stands the modern district of Paddington. Here, on Oxford Street, there are stores such as Diesel and multi-brand stores such as Incu, featuring such brands as A.P.C. and Marc Jacobs. Running perpendicular to Oxford Street is William Street, which is small but well worth a visit. Its elegant buildings are home to one of the city’s top multi-brands, Belinda, which has three stores there, apart from its downtown stores.  Nearby stands Poepke, another fine multi-brand store which features brands such as Dries van Noten and Bernhard Willhelm, among others.
