One weekend, after running some errands, my husband & I decided to stop off at Albert Park to peruse the boutique-lined strip that is Bridport Street. We came across a quaint boutique called Paloma Bleu. Paloma Bleu is a boutique which specialises in unique designer garments that fill in the gaps which some other retailers leave out.
Boutique owner, Laura Williamson, friendly down-to-earth, and approachable demeanor put me at ease immediately. This retail space has a wonderful ambiance about it. With a six year background in customer retail, working in London for Paul & Jo and in Melbourne at Bettina Liano's Chapel street boutique, is it any wonder that Laura knows a thing or two about style & customer service. Laura is passionate about meeting her clients wants and needs and sources her garments accordingly.
I noticed lots of candy coloured cashmere sweaters on the left of me as I entered the boutique. They were by none other than Australian designer label Banjo & Matilda, owned & run by Belynda Macpherson.
Paloma Bleu stocks over 20 labels, both locally and internationally. Such labels include Australian and New Zealand labels Karen Walker, Josh Goot, Ellery and international labels such as Lem Lem and Demylee (New York).
With a style icon like Alexa Chung (see this post) as Paloma Bleu's ideal customer, I'd say they Bleu are onto something big. Watch this space!
So, when you're next headed out the door for that special shopping experience, in search of a unique garment you won't find everyone wearing, head into Paloma Bleu. You won't be disappointed! I'm sure you will find something you'll love. Now, for saving up my pennies!!
Yours in style,
Paloma Bleu is located at 176 Bridport Street, Albert Park, Victoria, Australia. Open every day: Mon-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat 10-5pm Sun 11-4pm. Images courtesy of Laura Williamson.
