Here’s the sort of shop that you would usually expect to find in the chicest part of Sydney or a hidden lane in L.A.
You’d probably amble past its glamorous windows, tripping over your own feet whilst attempting to catch a glimpse of all the racks in all their perfection. A little too intimidated to walk in, but sinfully desperate to get every last garment back home to your wardrobe, where it truly belongs.
Thankfully, this little piece of shopping luxe that goes by the name of Carousel can be found in Seminyak, where it’s still perfectly acceptable to shop without heels on and try on far more pieces than you could ever afford.
Whether you want to spoil yourself with a Shona Joy, pick up something wild and geometric by INCYDA or just have the best cotton basics known to mankind with a few pieces by FROM, Carousel is where you need to be.
But the most exciting thing about Carousel – the thing that has us gravitating towards its doors and opening our wallets faster than we can say, “I’ll take two” – is the crème de la crème of eclectic summer attire: We Are Handsome. Unless you feel like traipsing across the island to Nusa Dua, Carousel is the only boutique we know of on the island to stock this much-loved Australian designed and sewn brand. A bikini with a zebra head print, a zipsuit covered in neon martini signs, cropped rashies that scream 1970’s Malibu Barbie – yes please and thank you!
