It’s sad but true. On Pedder in Gaysorn has closed. Yes, shuttered, as the Americans would say. Nothing is posted on the shopfront to announce its unfortunate closure, just a new window display featuring stuff from other tenants.
When On Pedder opened more than a year back, many women were excited but skeptical that it would last. They loved the shoes such as those by Christian Louboutin, Sergio Rossi, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, YSL and so many other towering names, but baulked at the high prices, usually as much as the monthly repayment of a car. Loving and buying, as is often said, are different, and one does not necessarily support the other.
