Melbourne’s hip and hard-to-find clothing boutique receives a revamp from long-time collaborators Six Degrees and Sibling.
April 12th, 2011
Six Degrees developed the fit-out for the original Someday store and gallery space in Melbourne 6 years ago. Since then both the designers and the store have morphed and changed, but the strong collaborative relationship has remained.
Alan Ting, formerly of Six Degrees and now of design collective Sibling, describes the development of the new Someday interior as a “natural evolution.”
“It’s a very honest, easygoing and relaxed approach to changing the space,” Ting says.
Located on the 4th floor of a low-rise on Melbourne’s Swanston Street, the store’s original design was based on a tree-house concept which has been retained throughout 3 renovations – all by Six Degrees and Sibling – since the store’s inception.
“Materials and resources on hand were utilised, like one would with a backyard cubby,” Ting says.
“The 3 previous renovations were of similar ilk. The modifications made this year included new joinery, such as a feature display case and counter.”
Although the store was conceived by label PAM, it has a “loose, spontaneous approach to the labels that surround it,” Ting says.
“This evolving stable of fashion labels and designer products is also reflected in the constant rearrangement and evolution of the architecture.”
