New meets old

Vision Magazine - - Style -

Fol­low­ing the an­nounce­ment of the re­de­vel­op­ment of the St John’s Church site, fash­ion en­tre­pre­neur Eva Galam­bos made the bold de­ci­sion to re­lo­cate her lux­ury bou­tique to the church in 2015. The restora­tion pre­served the her­itage char­ac­ter of the build­ing by re­tain­ing the sand­stone walls and stained glass win­dows, while the in­te­rior was mod­ernised with con­tem­po­rary light fit­tings and stylish fin­ishes. With the lux­ury de­sign of the in­te­rior con­trasted against the grand ex­te­rior, new life and pur­pose is brought to the her­itage site. It’s no wonder Galam­bos speaks of the space as hav­ing been ‘res­ur­rected’.

“Any­one who knows me knows that I love a chal­lenge, so then sud­denly I had the idea of mov­ing into Ox­ford Street, par­tic­u­larly at a time when it seems to have lost its en­ergy,” said Galam­bos.

Par­lour X

Founded by Galam­bos in 2001, Par­lour X is a multi-brand lux­ury bou­tique car­ry­ing high-end de­signer la­bels in­clud­ing Cé­line, Chloé, Fendi, Ba­len­ci­aga, Valentino, Saint Lau­rent, Comme Des Garçons, Stella Mc­cart­ney, Proenza Schouler and Is­abel Marant. Par­lour X also sea­son­ally houses ex­clu­sive cap­sule col­lec­tions from renowned Aus­tralian de­sign­ers in­clud­ing Mat­icevski, Ellery and Christo­pher Es­ber. 新舊交錯

美麗極具風格的聖約翰教堂劃為商業住宅後,受到很多爭議。偏愛時尚的 Eva Galam­bos 卻做了一個讓人意想不到的決定,2015年她將自己擁有的世界頂級品牌奢華精品店搬到了聖約翰教堂,將最時尚的潮流帶進了當地最古老的建築,珍惜和利用璀璨的歷史外衣,Eva保留了內部每一根刻畫著殖民時期遺蹟的柱樑和每一塊意味虔誠不變之心的透光彩色玻璃,用奢華的幽香點綴出這棟建築的宏偉與獨特。

「我喜歡挑戰,我將自己的店移到 Ox­ford 街,是因為這地方正漸漸失去了應有的活力」。Eva說,

站在門口,感受的是宗教帶來的寧靜,而放眼望去卻有著說不出的時髦和華麗。
