“I re­alised when do­ing this that a lot of my favourite places haven’t changed,” says Akira Iso­gawa of Vogue’s as­sign­ment to con­sider his ver­sion of Syd­ney. “The fa­mil­iar­ity and com­fort gives me a sense of ease and it al­lows me to play and be in­spired.” The Ja­panese-born de­signer, who ar­rived in Syd­ney more than 30 years ago, lives in Dar­linghurst, works in Mar­rickville, where his studio is lo­cated, and has come to know the eastern sub­urbs with his first bou­tique in Wool­lahra, across the road from Cen­ten­nial Park. “I love Syd­ney’s prox­im­ity,” he says. “You can have break­fast in Dar­linghurst, have a swim on the bay, then catch up with col­leagues in the late af­ter­noon for a drink, all in dif­fer­ent sub­urbs within a day.”
