For some of us, the only way we can deck out our wardrobes with designer clothing is when the shop assistant at Vinnie’s doesn’t know what a Gucci is and she chucks it in the bargain bin.
Fear not my fellow comrades with expensive taste and short pockets, 1800 Tequila has teamed up with Sydney vintage clothing store, Storeroom Vintage (yep, the one Halsey and Kendall Jenner visit when they’re in town) for pop-up designer sale.
In this once in a life time opportunity to shop items coveted by a Kardashian (kinda), the two brands are pairing bespoke premium cocktails with 1800 pieces of hand-selected international designer vintage clothing.
Mark it in your calendar, August 17, from 12-8pm at Storeroom Vintage on Crown St will see the debut and one-off of The 1800 Collection. Prices start from $60.
Lee Bob, founder of Storeroom Vintage and renowned curator, has personally sourced the collection of 1800 exclusive pieces for this collaboration.
“1800 Tequila is a brand that encapsulates the vibe and the uncompromising spirit we look for at Storeroom Vintage. They have a great tone and product, and we’re really excited to launch The 1800 Collection together – it’s going to be fire,” said Lee.
Customers can even treat themselves to an exclusive 1800 Tequila cocktail at the pop-up bar.
The cocktails are free with every purchase, are made with the equally iconic 1800 Tequila, and are created by the brand’s tequila specialist Hayley Dixon. Drinks include J’adore 1800, MO’SCHINO MO’PROBLEMS, The Devil Drinks 1800, and Shut the Dior.
