More than 80 designer labels make up the Tuchuzy collection, which is dedicated to garments and accessories for trendy Bondi babes. On one hand, you'll find the latest and greatest creations from Aussie brands, like Bassike, Bec & Bridge and Dion Lee. On the other, you can try on a bunch of imports from the likes of Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone and Helmut Lang. New arrivals land every week or two, so there's always a reason to drop by — be it an Orly tote from WANT Les Essentiels de La Vie, a pair of Celine sunnies or a wrap top from SIR the label.
When Daria Sakic opened Tuchuzy back in 1995 — in a much smaller shop down the street — it was one of Bondi's only clothing boutiques. Supportive of home-grown designers from the get-go, she was one of the first retailers to put sass & bide on her shelves. These days, the large, well-lit store is on the ground floor of an upmarket apartment block known as The Beach House, just opposite Sonoma's Bondi Beach cafe.
