Beautiful hats by Kate & Abel
A refreshingly unusual new retail space opened its doors in Fremantle yesterday, breathing life back into the abandoned Myer building that’s sat empty for some time now. An initiative of SpaceMarket and the City of Fremantle, Myre brings together designers, artists, hairdressers, makers and other creative types in the most spacious way possible – with a sprawling retail environment that feels airy, inviting and begs to be explored.
The ground floor is a dedicated retail space full of WA made awesomeness, home to names such as Six Thread (a collab between Wild Horses, On A Whim, Butcher & The Crow, Tindale, Monster Alphabets & Daniella Caputi), Common Ground, Urban Locavore, Jacinta Lapore, Kate & Abel, The Gossamer Project, Bauble Collective, and plenty more. Feast Your Eyes is also operating a gallery on the ground floor, which is currently showcasing some breathtakingly beautiful aerial photographs by Perth’s own Jarrad Seng – definitely worth a look. Upstairs is home to artist and maker studios, but I didn’t find time to venture up there and am not sure if it’s open to the public or not.
Congratulations to all involved in the development of the space – it’s a fantastic initiative and is sure to become a fast-favourite of Perth and Freo locals alike. Myre has its official launch this Saturday – I definitely recommend making the trek to Fremantle to check it out, you’ll find it nestled between Queen Street and Kings Square.
