Tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of Surry Hills, in a corner terrace on the leafy end of Bourke Street, you'll find Paris Texas.

Named after the cult 80s road film, the store exudes a stylish-yet-edgy coolness with a bit of Dolly Parton thrown in. If you're looking for some threads that the rest of Sydney doesn't already own, here's your spot. The boutique store is a haven of unique fashion that champions Australian labels. Expect frill and florals alongside sleek staples and a bunch of denim.

Stocking local clothing labels such as Asilio, Totem, Stevie May and The East Order as well as leather goods by Elms and King, pop-artsy jewellery from Doodad+Fandango and Peppermint Grove candles. And, of course, you'll find a fair few boots here, too.

Open for over a decade, the shop's fitout echoes a western saloon. From the record player, you'll hear the likes of Dolly, Cash and Loretta Lynn on heavy rotation. Paris Texas is a shop, sure, but it's also an ode to a film that helped define a generation of artists and individuals.
