Pampered In Perth: A Day In The City’s Favourite Precinct
Shopping in Perth is a true exploration of the senses. Between the busy shopping malls of the CBD and urban wonderland in Northbridge there are some hidden gems of culture, fashion and jewellery waiting to be unearthed, plus names you are certain to know already.
Take a journey with us and explore the King Street precinct that made high-end retail a reality in Perth.
Linneys jewellery designers have called Subiaco home for more than 45 years. Our Rokeby Road showroom and atelier remains our flagship location, with a proud tradition that goes back generations. Attracting visitors from all over the world, as well as WA locals familiar with the Linneys brand for almost half a century, our presence in Perth was destined to outgrow our original home.
And so, in 2017 we opened our newest showroom on King Street. Representing the highest standards in Perth jewellery design, our name adorning the heritage location fits in perfectly among the luxurious, lavish and local King Street brands. Featuring our extensive portfolio of handcrafted diamond jewellery, Argyle pink diamonds, Australian South Sea Pearls and other precious pieces, plus an intimate champagne bar for special moments, the heritage location speaks of our history and future in Perth.
Positioned perfectly on the corner of Hay and King Streets, the InterContinental Perth City Centre is our favourite home-away-from-home. With a rooftop bar overlooking the hustle and bustle of King Street and His Majesty’s Theatre, plus exclusive dining options and a sumptuous public restaurant at ground level, InterContinental is worth stopping in for an hour or a week.
Whether you are visiting from overseas and looking for a hotel designed for comfort and luxury, choosing a staycation for a relaxing weekend in Perth, or simply want to rest and recharge during a day of shopping, InterContinental is the complete package. Our insider tip: try the rosé high tea for a classic high tea experience with a twist.
Hidden behind an unassuming doorway and one floor down is one of Perth’s favourite speakeasy-style bars, Varnish on King. Famous for their extensive whiskey selection and elegant western saloon vibes, Varnish on King is well worth a visit. We strongly recommend the famous tasting flight of American whiskies paired with different bacon rashers.
And if dark spirits are not your style, there is an extensive menu of tantalising cocktails, superb local wines, tempting comfort food much more to choose from.
There are few brands that embody the rise of everyday luxury more than Gucci. Not only does the brand frequently feature in Top 100 lists of brands worldwide, it is one of the most successful Italian fashion brands ever. No mean feat for a label started by a young hotel worker.
Established 100 years ago in Florence, Gucci is now a King Street mainstay. Windows adorned with understated luxury, edged in sultry brown and gold, Perth’s Gucci store joins high fashion rivals Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Miu Miu to round out a stimulating shopping trip.
Before popping into Linneys to peruse Perth’s best designer jewellery, make an appointment with the artists at Head Studio to find out why they (rightly) call themselves Perth’s best hair stylist.
Whether you are after a cut, colour, blow dry or complete transformation, Head Studio is the place to go. The entire experience is designed around a feeling of relaxed luxury. Let your stress dissolve while Perth’s leading hair experts look after you in the spacious warehouse-style studio.
The spirit of style icon Coco Chanel is familiar to anyone who appreciates high fashion. Predating their King Street neighbours Gucci by 10 years, Chanel is now a household name in luxury ready-to-wear fashion, fragrances and accessories. No shopping trip to King Street is complete without a stop at the home of French fashion in Perth.
Chanel defines haute couture like Linneys define haute joaillerie in Perth. Perhaps that is why our jewellery makers are in good company sharing King Street with Chanel, or perhaps it is because Linneys and Chanel make a perfect pair for any occasion.
If you can tear yourself away from our designer jewellery collections, you can spot CULTSTATUS directly across the road from the Linneys showroom. Over two floors you can find the world’s leading fashion houses paired with the most exciting emerging designers, making for a unique shopping experience.
With labels from all over the world adorning the shelves, including many local luxury brands alongside international names like Valentino, YSL, Balenciaga and Dior to name but a few, CULTSTATUS is sure to inspire a fashion frenzy in your soul.
Find Linneys at 61 King Street Perth, visit our Perth jewellery makers at our flagship location at 37 Rokeby Road Subiaco, or discover the crown jewel of Crown Perth in our Burswood showroom.
