It might be on the other side of the world, but Australia has some beautiful boutiques. If you're ever in Sydney, may we suggest you head to The Standard Store in Surry Hills. Run by Orlando and Nicola Reindorf, the store brings the best of European style Down Under, but edited for the super active, outdoorsy Australian lifestyle.

What boutique are you from and where are you based? We are The Standard Store in Surry Hills, Sydney, Australia!

What brands do you sell?  Chinti & Parker, YMC, Sessun, Humanoid, Sandqvist, Folk, Henrik Vibskov, and Studio Nicholson to name a few.

When the new stock arrives do you get to try everything on?! Of course! We love it when it's box fresh! Everyone who works here has quite different styles, so we all gravitate to different parts of each collection.

Describe your personal style?

Jen: Stripes with spots with zigzags...

Karina: Boy style, no frills please!

Nicola: A mish-mash of every label we stock! (The way I feel in the morning reflects the way I dress for the day.)

What Chinti and Parker A/W piece are you most looking forward to getting in? Your Autumn Winter is our Spring Summer, so we're looking forward to some lovely soft organic tees, and polka dot cashmere cardis for when the sun goes down.

What do you think makes Chinti and Parker unique? Chinti and Parker have mastered patterned classics with a colourful pop. And the signature on the back is genius!
