Naked City Guide

Shop

Hello friend.

Burleigh’s already got an official welcome sign, but nothing stirs our maniacal civic pride more than our brand new unofficial welcome sign atop the Hello friend store. It all happened because owner Kim took a chance on a forgotten nook that’s always had spirit, but not the shop frontage. Now her range of new and vintage threads and knicknacks beckons one and all to drop in for a second look.

Two long racks of sartorial goodness line either side of this store, feeling rather like being in the walk-in robe of some long-haired, madcap 70s couple with a taste for quality natural fibres. ‘Old friend’ tags signal vintage while ‘New friend’ tags adorn indie labels like Chronicles of Never, Vanishing Elephant and Allusive Collections. This season Hello friend pays homage to its 70s surf ancestry with Saime and Rake boardies and button-cute Sandi togs. Bring on summer!
