As part of its makeover, Canberra Centre – the shopping destination of the nation’s capital – has launched a special pop-up venue, Eden, for a series of events and master classes throughout the coming months, covering everything from paper art (with Benja Harney), candle-making (with Elise Pioch of Maison Balzac) and meditation (with Gary Gorrow). It taps into the concept of experiential retail, where stores and centres are now presenting a more holistic and rounded offering that surpasses a single transaction.
On Friday 21 October 2016, Manuscript editor-in-chief Mitchell Oakley Smith will present the season’s best menswear looks from the centre’s retailers – including Country Road, David Jones, G-Star Raw, M.J. Bale and Saba – as part of an evening of watches and whiskey. Join him for a nip of whiskey and discover the looks and pieces and how to wear them. For more, visit the website to book.
