local treasure chest: luneselects, carlton

Have you ever walked into a space and been completely enamoured with the ambience? That’s the feeling when you walk into the Lune Selects pop up on Elgin St in Carlton. Run by the lovely Vy, the space is filled with carefully selected vintage and modern recycled pieces. Vy sources the pieces from a wide array of places - markets, op shops, online, and on occasional overseas holidays. She is attracted to the feel of pieces and often ends up selling pieces originally bought for herself.

The space is a true treasure chest and instead of having to dig through to find a precious gem - you’ll be overwhelmed with how beautiful each and every item is. Amongst them is a vintage CELINE cosmetic bag, Sonia Rykiel suede sandals, and some divine Pleats Please pants.

The space will be occupied by Lune Selects until the 19th of October. It is open Thursday to Sunday 12pm - 6pm. The pop-up is a reminder to me of why bricks & mortar is so important in the world of fashion. A shopping trip there is an entire experience and even if you don’t make a purchase you’ll leave feeling inspired and excited by the aesthetic.

Vy also has a permanent stall at the Lost & Found market on Brunswick St, Fitzroy. Here you’ll be just as likely to find some beautiful treasures and become their forever home.
