Australian fashion label Zimmermann has continued it’s world domination by launching it’s latest US boutique in San Francisco. And as much as we absolutely adore their fashions, we are crushing even harder on the interiors of this beautiful new retail space.

In keeping with the brand’s Australian roots, the new boutique is designed by Australian architect Don McQualter of Studio McQualter and is a physical embodiment of the ZIimmermann brand – relaxed femininity, an air of freshness and light, and unyielding optimism.

Zimmermann San Francisco was previously occupied by an art gallery giving the store ample square footage and grand high ceilings. In addition, Studio McQualter designed all custom metalwork, light fixtures, display tables, millwork and visual merchandising fixtures for both stores.

They mixed these designs with a selection of classic furniture, such as 1930’s Art Deco armchairs and Charles Dudouyt dining tables made of solid oak. Rare and expressive lighting elements such as 1976 vintage table lamps by Elio Martinelli for Matinelli Luce and a beautiful sculptured torch cut steel wall lamp with Murano glass designed by Marcello Fantoni are included to complete the overall store designs.

We love interiors and we love shopping, so when we discovered Rebecca Vallance's new Melbourne boutique we were ooohhing and aaahhing over the fit out and the clothes!  

Located on Armadale’s prestigious High Street, this is the brand’s new flagship store. Designed by local Interior Architect Shareen Joel , the space is light filled, modern, with the perfect amount of classic features. Timber parquetry flooring, stone benches and antique brass clothing rails are used as the stores’ foundations with complementary soft furnishings, ceiling-to-floor thick velvet curtains, leather seating, and antique silver mirrors, echoing the brands effortless elegance.

"The chic architectural interiors and natural light that fill the space are a perfect canvas to showcase our collections.” Rebecca Vallance, Designer

 

Jackalope Hotel, Mornington Peninsula...

The Mornington Peninsula has a new luxury hotel - Jackalope. Situated in Merricks North, on an 11-hectare winery planted in 1989, Jackalope has redefined boutique accommodation. 

46 designer rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows, some with private terraces overlooking the vineyards. Each and every room has a rain shower which is complimented by custom-made bath products by Hunter Lab, with larger rooms also containing deep-soak luxury Japanese baths.

The exceptional rooms and architecture were created by Carr Design Group, who worked in collaboration with Fabio Ongarato Design on the branding and graphics. One of our favourite Melbourne furniture designers Zuster created the elegant handcrafted furniture housed in the rooms and public spaces.

And for an added wow, the hotel entrance welcomes guests with a seven-metre-tall Jackalope sculpture by Melbourne artist Emily Floyd - see above image. 

Outside there is a super serene 30-metre infinity pool that offers views out to the vineyard and surrounding gardens - landscaped by Taylor Cullity Lethlean. See below image.

There are two restaurants – a fine dining room, Doot Doot Doot and a more casual restaurant and cellar door, Rare Hare; with interiors designed by Projects of Imagination. The Edwardian homestead 'McCormich House' situated on the property houses the hotel’s bar, Flaggerdoot.

For those unfamiliar with the name, a jackalope is a mythical rabbit-like creature with antlers.

"If luxury is defined by rarity, what is more luxurious than a creature so rare that it exists only in legend,” 

The eyebrow-raising names are all in keeping with the central theme: a Flaggerdoot being the collective noun for a group of jackalopes, with the Doot Doot Doot being the leader of a Flaggerdoot.
