King Street

For fashion with a funky and retro edge head to Newtown's King Street. It's a haven for one-off finds. All Buttons Great and Small is a haberdasher's dream while Yoshi Jones has fashionable men's and womenswear. Retrospec'd sells clothing inspired by 1940s and 1950s designer chic while Pretty Dog, in Brown Lane, brings together top Antipodean and international labels. Other must-stop shops are Leo Monk Handbags and Midnight Black for lingerie.

Newtown is a booklover's paradise. Check out Berkelouw, Better Read Than Dead and Gould's Book Arcade where choosing a book feels like a treasure hunt.
