The newest entrant on the city’s shopping scene is the opulent Emporium. With an enticing blend of local and international labels and concept and flagship stores, it’s been a hit with fashionistas since its Baz Luhrmann-directed opening in 2014. This is the home of the first Australian outlet of Uniqlo, the popular Japanese lifestyle brand, as well as a parade of other big names including Kate Spade, Georg Jensen, Rodd & Gunn and Ted Baker. Lose yourself for a few hours before heading to the exceptional food court where you can recharge on dumplings at New Shanghai or posh sandwiches at Earl Canteen.
This is right on the doorstep of Melbourne’s Little Greek Precinct – just head a bit further east for some 24-hour souvlaki at Stalactites.
