Ever since I was a little girl I shared the fascination for ‘Big Cities’ with my dad. Every saturday we drove to Brussels, Antwerp, Lille, Hasselt,… to get lost in the city streets. As my dad passed away last year, I can’t even explain how much I miss this. Together with him I lost my heart in Antwerp where we enjoyed so many exhebitions, summer afternoons or even the movies.
Today I’m gonna tell you all about my favorite fashion spots over there. When you visit Antwerp by train you need to cross the Meir. I know this is a busy boulevard with lots of mainstream shops but when there, these are the stores you want to give a shot:
A very refreshing lifestyle and fashion store for you, him and the mini me’s.
When the budget is rather low: DON’T ENTER! This is a big store full of yummie brands as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Moschino, MSGM,…
In one of the side streets you will find 8tea5 for a great Bubble Tea. Pick your flavour, pick your bubbles and enjoy!
Before you go to the ‘Nationale Straat’, you must visit Caffènation for a delicious cup of coffee! You can also buy some coffee beans which made my boyfriend very happy!
For now, as this is a pop-up store, this is my favorite place to shop! These handmade scarfs, hats and sweaters all have a beautiful story behind them, go and read all about that here. The store itself is clean and cosy at the same time, worth visiting!
I’m a huge fan of Jutka & Riska! The mix of their own collection and the vintage pieces really works. On top of that, their accessories are to die for. My dressing is full of them. Earrings, necklaces and rings are all very qualitative and original.
In this area you need to check out these places:
They opened their very first flagship store and it’s beautiful! As the collection is very expensive, I only got the chance to give it a look and a feel. But SERIOUSLY, those caps and boots!!
Beautiful store with the best Sessùn pieces you can imagine!
For a healthy lunch, this is the place to be!
Two of my all-time favorites right across each other:
Don’t forget to check out their necklaces, socks and children’s collection!
With the awesome Lykke Li collab now in stores!
Oh how I love this street. It’s hard to select just a few cool places here but I’ll give it a try:
A stylish boutique where ‘Urban city chic meets vintage’. I’m a fan!
I recently discovered LOT. And I love it! What a lovely collection: colorful skirts, cosy sweaters and nice cluthces or iPhone covers… LOT offers you all you need!
Such a cosy corner in Antwerp. A little shopping and a nice drink to end your day!
A young girl opened her own store with a great mix of accessories and clothes!
End your day in this jazz bar with your friends!
See you in Antwerp,
