Last year I spent some lovely downtime with Napoleon Perdis and his family at his Palm Springs home. We swam, we hiked and we shopped the vintage trunk shows. I still dream of those shops. Incredible.
Napoleon is an avid collector and his homes are filled with incredible pieces that span every period from Hollywood Regency to Modern European chic.

Now he’s brought this passion back to Australia with the opening of his first Napoleon Perdis Life.Style store. Filled with vintage treasures and also some cool new labels out of Los Angeles and Paris, the project has been a labour of love.
“I’ve been looking for a truly special location for my vision of a truly special store for some time. Napoleon Perdis Life.Style will be a reflection of my own eclectic aesthetic; I am very acquisitive and love nothing more than hunting for and gathering new finds – be it fashion, furniture, or art. I wanted to recreate the experience, that feeling I get when I stumble upon something remarkable, whether it’s just an interesting trinket or a true treasure to add to my collection.”
Naturally you can have your make-up done in the store too with special rooms dedicated to VIP services.
I wasn’t supposed to shop but I did. I bought this:
