Led by brothers Ben and Nick Chiu and husband and wife duo Simon and Kim Sun, contemporary concept store DOUBLE DOUBLE reflects their refined taste in contemporary streetwear, luxury fashion and a global perspective on art and culture.

In a light-filled space on the 1st floor of an unassuming office building situated alongside Brisbane City Hall, it is through a sleek elevator that opens into an expansive floor space where an amalgamation of global brands intertwine for modern lifestyle. Amongst the racks find Stone Island, Carhartt WIP to Milan-based brand Sunnei and Barcelona-based Paloma Wool, including a generous selection of Japan’s most sought-after brands; Neighborhood, Undercover, Wacko Maria Guilty Parties, N Hollywood, WTAPS, to cult incense Kuumba International – crafted directly in the heart of Tokyo. As regular travellers to Tokyo, find the brothers detailing their favourite ramen spot to a memorable night in one of the cities deepest clubs, only for those in the know.

Alongside garments, a range of lifestyle goods are on offer, including Commes des Garcons – Parfum and Retaw, to printed matter 032c, The Plant, Hypebeast Magazine, Record, B Magazine, and formerly our own print too: Ala Champ Magazine.

DOUBLE DOUBLE is a deep dive into global contemporary culture through fashion, goods and print. With a stellar curation of product and seasonal selection of wares, the hard-to-find boutique is a must visit.

Whilst driving local music events, the team can also direct you to the best art exhibitions in the area, or divulge on the latest global fashion movements – it’s no doubt one of the most knowledge and contemporary spaces in the city to know.
