Australian menswear purveyor Politix is disrupting notions of the ‘pop up’ concept with an exclusive, invite-only space in the heart of Sydney’s Newtown to celebrate the launch of the AW19 collection. Running from May 2 – 17, ‘Politix After Dark’ is a secret space and to gain access you need to be in the know. What does this mean exactly? Can’t say. Apparently, I’m not ‘in the know.’
Cloaked by an amusing inner city Dry Cleaner facade, guests will come behind the curtain into an underground pool hall, complete with a speakeasy bar – inspired by Politix’s recent AW19 campaign shoot. The collection boasts premium tailoring and the signature Politix colour palette all reflected in the detailed construction of the ‘After Dark’ space.
Opening night includes stand-up comedy by the duo of former Triple J presenters Alex Dyson and Kyran Wheatly, followed by a DJ set from style connoisseurs Client Liaison.
On select nights, VIPs will be treated to stand-up comedy, eats and beats by DJ Jesabel with rounds of pool down below and beverages by Brown Brothers, Young Henry’s and Absolute.
‘Politix After Dark’ is on now. If we figure out how to gain access, we’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime, you can check out the Politix AW19 collection via the link below.
