Time Out says
Because some days you have to wear blazers and some days you want to wear toucan-patterned shorts – here they cater for both
On the corner of Shipwright Walk and Scotch Row, there’s a small outpost of the Surry Hills store Somedays that lures in shoppers on their way to Barangaroo Wharf just to take a longer look at a pair of those tan leather sandals from St Agni that they’ve been eyeing up since their last trip to Byron Bay.
The 1960s style slingbacks will set you back around $200, which is around the middle price mark of most items in store, from the British LNDR gym gear at $95 to a black leather biker jacket from the Copenhagen street style label Samsoe & Samsoe, just shy of $600.
Since the Somedays stores opened in Australia over a decade ago, the owners have continued to bring their love of Nordic fashion to Sydney, from the delicate handmade jewellery by Danish designer Anni Lu to the prolific Australian-Swedish denim label, Neuw. But they don’t limit themselves to Euro brands: you can find a similar minimalistic aesthetic in the cult ethical label Kowtow from New Zealand and in the opposite direction, psychedelic Hawaiian shirts by Sydney-based Double Rainbouu.
In fact, they’re not really hemmed in by any shapes, styles or budgets. If the item is deemed good quality, from a reliable brand and – importantly – wearable at work or play, then it fits the bill for Somedays. What differentiates the Barangaroo store from the original Fitzroy Street shop is that this younger sibling is more conservative. Come here for a clean-lined leather handbag by Royal Republiq in a safe, work-friendly black or tan, or an aptly named pair of ‘City Survivor Sunglasses in Havana’ by Norwegian label Kaibosh.
