“Chris and I have been talking about doing something together for a long time, but it hasn’t really ever eventuated.“
Until now. Before the impending closure of Format Systems’ Hindley Street residence, Belinda Humphris of Claire Inc and Christopher Arblaster of Filter Store will be setting up a collaborative pop-up retail space on the ground floor of 80 Hindley.
As both luxury fashion collectors usually sell online only, the brick-and-mortar retail space is a rare entity. With the exception of a brief Claire Inc pop-up above Gang a few years back, local buyers rarely have the opportunity to physically shop Belinda and Chris’ vintage.
“It will be nice to have people come through and touch it and feel it, “ says Belinda.
