St Kilda Studio Pop-up Shop

In the heart of Melbourne’s iconic suburb of St Kilda, Acland Street whispers tales of a vibrant past. But the soul of this bayside haunt is being reawakened, and a new Kerrin Studio Pop-Up Shop is set to be a slice of the new scene.

Emanating a mix of surf luxe, clubhouse and zen dojo vibes, the Kerrin Studio Pop-up Shop is located at 104–106 Acland Street for an evanescent season.

In a fusion of local spirit and entrepreneurial moves, Kerrin is the first participating brand in a council-backed initiative aimed at beating back the silence of empty storefronts and pulsating life back into Acland Street’s veins.

Kerrin’s pop-up studio shop is more than a store; it’s a realm where customers can sense the brand’s soul and feel the glow of design and craftsmanship in action. Kerrin underscores the power of real-world encounters in forging unbreakable bonds. From the studio tatami, customers can get behind-the-label insights, chat with the designer, glimpse future creations, and indulge in the rolling collection.

This is a transparent leap in strengthening brand recognition and trust, transitioning from its usual digital dojo at to a tangible presence.

Reviving Acland Street is vital in keeping Melbourne’s cultural heartbeat strong. This synergy between landlords, the street, and boutique brands creates a triumvirate of success. For the brand’s founder, this project is a nostalgic journey back to where he first lived upon returning to Australia from honing his skills at London’s Royal College of Art. Walking along Acland Street two decades ago was like stepping into a iconic yet mysterious world. “St Kilda had an allure that was instantly both magnetic and enigmatic  - it was like I’d stepped into a scene from The Lost Boys - altogether familiar yet hard to place.”

The suburb’s renaissance extends its arms beyond retail, with the anticipated revival of culinary stalwart Café Di Stasio a prime example. With an art gallery rumoured to be annexed above and a renewed dining experience, its mooted imminent launch offers another signal of St Kilda’s broader awakening.

As Acland Street transforms, it again becomes a canvas for St Kilda’s blend of history, arts, culture, and innovation. Kerrin, alongside a parade of new ventures and cultural projects, injects a dynamic energy into the suburb, heralding a luminous future for one of Melbourne’s most treasured locales.

Come step into the Kerrin St Kilda Studio Pop-up shop, a sanctuary of esoteric preppy surf vibes where the art of relaxation is celebrated with earnest passion.
