The other day I popped in to the divine Post Emporium - Aurelio Costarella's flagship boutique in the old North Perth post office at 23 View Street. I was surprised (and very impressed) to find such an inviting space, eclectically beautiful with a range of antiques, homewares and jewellery as well as the breathtaking garments themselves.
His work really is amazing, I often feel that the pieces shown in the press don't do his aesthetic justice, but seeing them in a less red-carpet orientated environment gave me a renewed enthusiasm. This store is an absolute must see for anyone visiting Perth, and if you already live there and haven't been, go, immediately!
Antique French chainmail purses with crystal beads, hand knotted on to silk thread, available in a range of sizes (the strap crossing the mannequin has a larger one attached to it. Gorgeous!).
