broersenbrillen

3 reasons to go there:

  1. If you love (sun) glasses.
  2. If you’re driving from Antwerp to Gent: Belsele is a very small village close to the E17 highway.
  3. If you like the fact that two brothers (broer means brother in English) started this business.

LOTTA AGATON STOCKHOLM

June 13th, 2014

lottaagatonstockholm

Right in front of the School of Architecture in Stockholm you will find the shop of Lotta Agaton, a well-known interior designer from Stockholm. She not only sells the finest designer stuff in here, but she’s also working there on new projects. Working in front of a wall with some inspiring quotes where ‘no bullshit allowed’ is the most eye-catching. From the pictures I’ve seen before I thought the store was completely white, but those pictures are from the year she started and the interior is changed a lot since then. Now I see Read more…

DUSTY DECO II STOCKHOLM

June 10th, 2014

dustydecohornstullstockholm

You may know Dusty Deco in Sodermalm. A wonderful place for vintage finds, but the owners grew out of it. So they were looking for a bigger location and they found it in the up-and-coming area of Hornstull. There you literally walk into heaven if you love vintage and I couldn’t stop taking pictures. Let’s start with a short piece of history: the owners of Dusty Deco (also a couple) worked for years for famous Swedish fashion brands. For their work they traveled the world and came back with wonderful vintage pieces. Often 60s design from the States, but basically everything that makes their heart beats faster. First they put it all in their home until they grew out of it. So that Read more…

mariestellamarisarchivesamsterdam

3 reasons to go there:

  1. If you already like their water-line. Last Friday Marie Stella Maris opened their first store in the center of Amsterdam.
  2. If you like to see their new care-line: 100 products for beauty and home. With a good cause: from every product you buy a percentage goes to clean water projects.
  3. If you’re thirsty: in the basement they have a small cafe where you can drink water, coffee or tea.

May 19th, 2014

thefinestoredenhaag

Most striking feature:

The collection of the Fine Store. You want to have it all! During Design Kwartier, a festival for slow design, food and lifestyle, I went to this new shop owned by Evelien Maat. She’s not only the owner of the shop, but together with her sister she also designs the most beautiful rugs, pillows and table linens under the name of By Mölle. Which she sells at the Fine Store ofcourse, but she also has an eye for pretty slow design with an honest touch to it. If we look around in the shop we Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: FIRMAMENTO BARCELONA

April 23rd, 2014

firmamentobarcelona11

Most striking feature:

Barceloneta is more than a popular tourist beach, because surfers come here often to find the perfect wave. You will see surfers walking with their boards along the boulevard towards the sea and at chiringuito Gallito you will see the surfboards hanging on the wall – not only as decoration because you can also rent them. New is Firmamento, a surf shop that is only open during the weekend and where you can buy all kind of surf products. From the boards itself to wax (which has an oh so good coconut smell). But there’s more: the Read more…

Most striking feature:

In Surry Hills you will find one nice restaurant after another. One of the latest additions is The Stables. A cafe and shop opposite the Beresford Hotel, one of the most famous pubs in Sydney. The Stables is actually more than just a cafe and a shop, because there’s also a creative company, a modeling agency and a rooftop in the building. So much to discover! I started my visit with a lunch in the lovely black/white cafe where they serve Five Leaves coffee and work in beautiful designed aprons. After the Read more…

brainydaysamsterdam

Most striking feature:

Around the corner of Tenue de Nimes in Amsterdam you will find a new shop called Brainy Days, the store of Vera. The store will be there for half a year and Vera, the owner, will gather the most original gift items in here. From inspirational quotes to cutting boards shaped like a diamond. Last Friday she officially opened the doors and she launched an online magazine at the same time (click on this link to see more). With an overload of cool interior shops in Amsterdam (from Friday Next to Maison NL and from Hutspot to Six and Sons) Brainy Days knows how to select the most special pieces with a more than fine price tag. From an Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: DOVER STREET MARKET NEW YORK

February 22nd, 2014

doverstreetmarketnewyork4

Most striking feature:

This store feels like a museum! Although Dover Street Market is a six stories high building, the entrance is tucked away in a small street between Park and Lexington Avenue. You will be greeted by a doorman and while I was in doubt whether to go left (to the shop) or right (to the cafe) someone who worked there gave me the advice to take the elevator and start on the top floor and zig-zag my way down. Every floor is different and showcases the most fashionable brands there are right now. From, ofcourse Comme des Garçons, and from Supreme, Nike, Alexander Wang, Erdem, Rick Owens, Christopher Kane and many more. Rei Kawakubo, the Read more…
