Mid June. Its generally depressing, dismal and dreary. However, fellow lovers of beautiful things (namely: fashion) rejoice! For a mere five days we lucky Adelaidians have access to a plethora of beauty direct from the Australian design extraordinaire Dion Lee.

Now, we here at CityMag don’t mean to send you into a frenzy, but this pop up is filled with past season mainline, archive and exclusive samples- all at heavily reduced prices. For those already familiar with the designer, you can expect to find classic Dion Lee staples; beautifully constructed garments that utilise traditional tailoring with experimental elements- and always made with the most luscious, highest-of-quality fabric. No need to thank us, but do think of us when you are in drowning in a paradise of fashion forward pieces that will remain in your wardrobe for many years to come.

The Dion Lee pop up store is open from Wednesday the 25th of June until Sunday the 29th of June, so you best trot on over before it all disappears (What an anxiety inducing thought!) Quick!

 Our Fashion Director Marie Totsikas’ top picks:


CityMag’s top pick: We were swooning over this matching set. In all its cobalt glory this outfit oozes sophistication and is right on trend. And delightfully enough, it won’t make your bank account cry.



Lee, the master of weaving within garments. Swoon. Bask in all its genius and intricate craftsmanship. Naturally, the Filter Leather skirt is also on our wish list.




Pieces of Lee’s collaboration with artist Mason Mulholland are also in store. Utilising all the colours of the rainbow, these prints are somehow elegant and edgy at the same time. Team with minimalist basics, like Lee’s to-die-for silk shirts, and you’ll be gold. Trust us.


The Dion Lee Pop-Up is located on the ground floor of the Myer Centre and is open from Wednesday the 25th till Sunday the 29th of June.



Ahh, Pre-sale racks; full of the stuff dreams are made of. But only for five short days, friends.
