BNKR DTLA: Shop With Our Contest Winners!

How does having an entire store to yourself sound? With an expert stylist on hand to help you plan outfits + give personalised advice on every piece? Pretty good, huh?

Live vicariously through our Matt Corby competition winners - they won an in-store shopping experience at our brand new DTLA flagship (plus tix to see the Australian babe in concert).

We caught up with Courtney + Leslie after all the excitement.

Name: Courtney Location: Los Angeles, California

BNKR: Tell us about your shopping experience at the new DTLA store.Courtney: BNKR is so sleek - a gem in the heart of DTLA, the hippest neighbour on Broadway. As Lesley and I wandered through the rows of gorgeous pieces, we quickly realised that we wanted to buy one of everything. From the fit of the clothes to the amazing help from Natasha, BNKR is a first-class experience. I can't wait to purchase an outfit for my next night out!

Favourite piece you chose?'The Logic Vest' by Finders Keepers. It's a really unique longline vest with a bandage top and side cutouts. Oh and it's black, the greatest colour of all time.

What’s your favourite label in the store + why?The Fifth. It's an awesome blend of high fashion and casual with a menswear influence. Would wear it everyday if I could!

Number one song at the Matt Corby concert?'Monday'. It showcases his incredible vocals so well and gives you all the feels with its soulful sound. I could listen to that song all day.

Name: Leslie Location: Los Angeles, California

BNKR: Tell us about your shopping experience at the new DTLA store.Leslie: I absolutely loved shopping at BNKR DTLA. Natasha was super rad, and brought out so many clothing pieces that I need to go back and purchase! She did a great job at assessing my personal style, and even helped Courtney and I style some future outfits. 

Favourite piece you chose?In the end, my favourite piece was the C/MEO Collective For The People Playsuit! I love that I can wear it both dressy and casual! It's absolutely perfect for the summer.

What’s your favourite label in the store + why? Hands down, C/MEO Collective is my favourite label in the store. I loved the cut of the different clothing pieces. I find it difficult to find items that are cut to my shape, but with C/MEO everything fit perfectly!

Number one song at the Matt Corby concert? Just one? Okay, definitely 'Souls A'fire'. It's one of my favourite songs off of Into the Flame. I love a good guitar riff and Matt absolutely killed it! I'm not exaggerating when I say that my jaw dropped when he started singing, and I was in awe the entire time! Plus, the crowds' energy was marvellous - which is something that doesn't happen too often with an LA crowd. Matt really knows how to captivate an audience, and this song was the cherry on top to the entire show.
