Fodor's Expert Review Claremont Quarter
For a mix of designer threads, high fashion, and comfy staples, head to this shiny enclosed shopping center. You'll find gorgeous Australian beauty products by Aesop and Jurlique; classic garments at Country Road; mature but glam women's wear at Carla Zampatti; cosmetics at Napoleon Perdis; and electrical goods and gadgets at Dick Smith—they're all Australian. For international brands, seek out Calvin Klein, French Connection, Karren Millen, and Mecca Cosmetica. There are half a dozen chic cafés, too—get a chocolate hit at Koko Black and great yum cha at Yamato Sushi.
