Owner Elizabeth Charles was inspired to open her Manhattan shop after friends and strangers kept asking where she'd picked up her trademark girly-cool attire. "I realized the top Australian designers I loved weren't available in the U.S.," explains Charles. Her new West Coast offshoot has more modern touches than its New York sibling, like clean, sea foam green walls and a graphic black-and-white rug, but the focus is the same: a brilliant mix of otherwise-hard-to-find lines from Down Under. "I think it's the unusual details and combinations that make these designers so alluring," says Charles. Evening-worthy dresses from Martin Grant and Collette Dinnigan are in constant demand, as are slick trenches from Richard Nicoll and lace tops from Thurley. 2056 Fillmore St., 415-440-2100, elizabeth-charles.com
