Westfield 2.0

Westfield Sydney is home to some of the most prestigious design houses in the world, and this year we’ll be adding a handful of some of the most in-demand independent designers and up-and-coming makers to the mix via a series of one-off month-long collaborations.

Sorry Thanks I Love You was never conceived as a stand-alone retail store. Instead we’re on a mission to nurture relationships, inspire moments of happiness, support our community and contribute to our city’s culture. That’s why we do things like offer yoga classes in our spaces after dark, collaborate with Gourmet Traveller to create gourmet foodie Christmas pantries, and partner with the art world’s ‘patron satan’ on large scale in store installations.

 

When Westfield Sydney invited us over for a pop-up last summer, we took our signature experimental approach and built the entire store out of 100% recyclable polystyrene foam.

We’ve been invited back – and this time round we’re going even further in the experimental stakes.  While our furnishings are a little more permanent, this time our whole concept is ephemeral.

Westfield Sydney is home to some of the most prestigious design houses in the world. Our home is on the level 4 ‘designer gallery’ with the likes Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Celine -  and we’re right next door to local icons Aesop and Zimmermann. 

We’ve designed our presence at Westfield against this backdrop and are using our monochrome space to host a series of one-off, month-long experiential collaborations.  Think of it as the inventive, unpredictable niece to our original Martin Place store around the corner.

Over the course of the next six months we’ll be partnerning with some of the world’s most in-demand, independent brands, distillers, cooks or makers to present their newest ideas and showcase their inventions. 

Over the coming months we’ll be partnering with designers from Copenhagen, ecowarriors from Paris, potion makers from London and a handful of Australia’s best gourmands.  This means that visitors to our Westfield space will experience, taste and feel something quite different in August than they will in sunny November.

We’re kicking off the series with a July showcase of the Sorry Thanks I Love You concept, featuring a rotating selection of the newest work from Lucy Folk, Dinosaur Designs, Momoko Hatano and Issey Miyake – including limited pieces from his Pleats Please collection and seasonal release Bao Bao bags – as well as a selection of gourmet food, craft beverages and handmade design and accessories.

While a signature selection of Sorry Thanks I Love You’s curation will remain, come August our space will be infiltrated by one of Scandinavia’s major players. In September, our space will be reimagined again by an entirely different kind of creative brain, and on it will go until 2020 is upon us. 

Our Westfield space is already open and one-off and limited edition pieces from Issey Miyake will be available from this store for the month of July.  Visit us any day from 10am – 6.30pm on Level 4 and keep your ears open for all the details of our first month-long collaboration towards the end of this month.

We think we’ll surprise you.
