Makeup maestro Napoleon Perdis has launched a unique retail space in South Yarra that could be likened to a secret grotto.

Brimming with luxury accessories, homewares and ready-to-wear design, the store is tribute to the main man of makeup’s inspiration points: travel, architecture, interior design, art and fashion.


Launched in The COMO Centre, Life.Style Melbourne is a reflection of Perdis eclectic aesthetic. The carefully edited selection of beautiful things also includes vintage furniture, and artworks, making it a space with visual impact as well as maximum retail potential, sitting alongside the Napoleon Perdis cosmetic offering.

Featuring ready-to-wear pieces from designers including Clover Canyon, Robert Rodriguez, Milly NY and South Parade, as well as jewellery by Jean Marie Poinot and JOOLS, and handbags by Cecile et Jeanne and Clare Vivier.


Homewares by IONIA Tablewear and Klein Reid as well as Furthur Design and Molla Space are also on display, contributing to a visually stimulating interior brimming with delightful wares.


“I am very acquisitive and love nothing more than hunting for and gathering new finds; be it fashion, furniture or art,” Perdis says.

The Life.Style boutique is an evident amalgamation of all that is luxe, from Picasso artwork, to vintage Lacroix. The physical manifestation of Perdis’ “favourite things” resounds throughout the space, adding a further element of innovation to the powerhouse brand.


A Napoleon Perdis Life.Style signature collection is also planned, to complement the South Yarra boutique.
