Last Thursday I jumped into the Thalys to Antwerp to attend the official store opening of the first flagship store of one of my favorite designer duo’s: AF Vandevorst. Their uniforms, the army green coloring, I love every single piece of their designs. I’ve been lucky enough to attend some of their shows during Paris Fashion Week so I was very excited for this day. By the way, I always forget what an amazing city Antwerp is so note to self: go back asap! Here’s a quick rundown about the new store and this day! Enjoy!
The store: is located in the most amazing street full of stores on the Lombardenvest 20. One of the designers Filip told me they were engaged in the complete project but asked Bob Verhelst, an Antwerp based scenographer, to come up with an unique proposal for the architectural and interior design schemes. Everything fits their collections and style so well, the hospital vibe they’re known for is completely represented in the store.
Lunch: After our visit to the store we went to an amazing lunch and had a little bit more time to get to know the designers and to learn more about this project and their upcoming collections. Without further ado, enjoy the pictures and I hope you can feel the goodness of the store through these images. Fun fact: there’s a shot of a pair of boots made of chocolate..
Lastly I can highly recommend visiting their website as well and desperately coveting every piece of the collection like I’m doing right now. Big kiss, N.
Address: Lombardenvest 20, 2000 Antwerpen
