After travelling to Greece on a holiday, two best friends fell in love with its people, the land, and everything it personifies. Completely inspired, they decided to open their own European lifestyle store in Brisbane. Selling boutique olive oils stocked in Harrods, ornaments which are sold in The Getty, The Louvre and The British Museum, and European style shoes which are sold in all the top boutiques around Europe and so much more, the boutique provides talented and dynamic young European designers and artisans living in crisis with a chance to showcase their designs to Australia. They also sell a variety of luxurious European fashion, known for its flare and timeless quality.
