Honor Among Thieves

Invitees didn't know what to expect when they were invited to the Honor Among Thieves Chapel Street store launch. Of course, there was the obvious: this was the second H.A.T. store to open (the first being in the CBD) in recent years, and Roy Christou has been a powerhouse in cool, casual men's clothing for years. 

The store opening was typical Christou: you didn't know what would greet you when you got through the shop opening, but already at the front, a fun vibe and sense of humour was evident, as guests had to stand in front of a line-up, criminal style, holding placards stating their "crimes" (e.g. Selfie Addict). Then, you had to walk all the way through the store and up a staircase only to exit at the back - where a pumping party with an underground vibe was taking place. Think: deejay (sometimes in a bikini on the freezing Melbourne night), bar, and delicious morsels of food thanks to the Greek deli next door. It had a homespun but uber-hip atmosphere - think private party in the back streets of Tribeca.
