Uber-cool store-cum-gallery Somedays has been described as a breath of fresh air on the Sydney shopping scene. Combining art and fashion in a loft-style gallery, the place attracts hordes of artsy antipodeans, not only to its events and exhibitions, but to browse, buy and just chill out. Here you can find obscure Scandinavian labels to ensure your wardrobe stays original, as well as better known brands which don’t cost an arm and a leg.
There’s plenty to do around Somedays too – in fact, Surry Hills is renowned for being the city’s centre as far as the visual arts are concerned, and the store capitalises on the Surry Hills Festival which attracts tens of thousands of people each year. A social hub for the fashion-conscious, Somedays is a hidden oasis of understated cool tucked away from the circus of Sydney’s retail strip.
