If you were saving your pennies for a rainy day then Melbourne’s first live/work/play destination is it. You’d easily be forgiven for thinking you had just stepped inside a New York City penthouse; which is exactly how the Crema Group want you to feel, after all The Eighth by Crema was inspired by the luxury hotels and private members clubs of London and New York.
Not only will The Eighth be the first residential development in Melbourne to feature private lift access into curated private lobbies across all residencies, it will operate a private membership club from within the building featuring an Executive Business Lounge and Day Spa – The Eighth Club.
Say no more, take our money.
In keeping with its luxurious and exclusive offering, The Eighth has aligned with a new generation of tailoring in the shape of Sydney based craftsman Remy Ghougassian. If you’re not familiar with the name and appreciate tailor-made fashion that allows you to transition effortlessly between work and play then read on.
From humble beginnings of working in the iconic Chapel Street precinct to opening boutiques for bigger franchises in Sydney, LA and New York City, Remy Ghougassian soon realised the demand for quality, made to measure clothing – particularly in Australia. With his core portfolio consisting of suiting, shirts, trousers and knitwear, Remy’s attention to detail is obvious – we’re talking from experience here.
We were curious as to how a new generation of tailor embodied the ‘Live/Work/Play’ concept of The Eighth, however, according to Remy, it’s what consumers want: “At Remy we make pieces of clothing that don’t adhere to dress codes and, like The Eighth, look to global influences for inspiration.
“We understand that our customers want to transition effortlessly between work and play, so we make shirts, trousers and knitwear that can be worn casually, at work or formally for those big nights out.”
You heard it here first, you really can Live, Work and Play all in the one place, and in the one outfit, no less.
