In 2008, Adrian Norris co-founded Aje, an Australian luxury womenswear brand.

Retail Beauty recently reported on the launch of Ikkari, a skincare and wellness line he’d been quietly developing for five years.

With products spanning skincare, ingestibles, and aromatherapy, Ikkari reflects Norris’ passion for natural well-being.

The brand has now unveiled the Summer Retreat in Sydney, a seasonal retail space filled with sensory experiences.

This immersive haven offers tonic tastings, skincare treatments, and aromatherapy sessions, guided by on-site Ikkari experts. Patrons can explore the 66-product range with tailored recommendations. The space introduces upcoming facial treatments, including virtual and in-store consultations, and a 30-minute lymphatic lifting treatment with an Ikkari product purchase.

This summer-long concept store hints towards exciting retail plans for the brand for the remainder of 2023 and beyond.

Steph Leathers, Ikkari CEO, emphasised the elevated setting’s role in understanding their offerings: “The Ikkari team are thrilled to unveil our newest retail concept with the Summer Retreat pop-up in Westfield’s iconic Sydney City location. The brand has celebrated unprecedented success to date and the appetite from our customers so far has been a testament to the products themselves and the unique ingredients and innovation they bring to the health, wellness and beauty categories. The store gives the Ikkari customers a place to experience the brand in an elevated sensorial setting that is essential to understand our offering, guided through personalised consultations.”

The Ikkari Summer Retreat will run from Wednesday, August 30th until January 2024 at Shop 2024, Westfield Sydney City 2000.
