TRIED & TESTED: BRAINY DAYS AMSTERDAM

April 15th, 2014

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…

TRIED & TESTED: BAGGU BROOKLYN

February 18th, 2014

Baggu Brooklyn

Most striking feature:

The colorful Baggu bags and the new blue and white striped duffel bag (I just love stripes). Around the corner of Pilgrim Surf & SupplyMociun and Isa Baggu started with a pop up shop a few years ago. That was such a success that they now have a permanent shop in Williamsburg. And it’s their only shop, because Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: THE KINFOLK STORE BROOKLYN

February 13th, 2014

kinfolkshopbrooklyn

Most striking feature:

The wooden structure inside the store. It’s only there for a short period of time, because they are working on a performance and gallery space behind it, and once that opens, they will remove the structure, but it’s has a stunning design. Kinfolk Studios, don’t confuse it with Kinfolk Magazine, is a design company from Brooklyn (they design bikes and fashion and everything else they couldn’t find anywhere else) with their headquarters at 90 Wythe Avenue. There you will also find a cafe downstairs and Scandinavian restaurant Aska (more about that in the post of this afternoon) . Now they bought the space next door and turned it into the Kinfolk Store. They sell Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: MALABABA MADRID

January 22nd, 2014

malababamadrid

Most striking feature:

The green interior. Malababa isn’t exactly a new address, but when I got there I still was pleasantly surprised by the modern interieur. It looks like a theme in Madrid to bring the garden inside (see also my posts of restaurant Ana la Santa and Blanca 6). That, in combination with the raw walls, een old door that now serves as a table and some small vintage tables makes this shop special. But what Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: HUTSPOT ROZENGRACHT AMSTERDAM

December 1st, 2013

HutspotRozengracht

Most striking feature:

The taxidermy. Inspired by the famous Deyrolle store in Paris, the new Hutspot also has a large collection of taxidermy. From beautiful butterflies in frames to a canary on a stick. Inspiring. Hutspot started in 2012 with a temporary store on the Utrechtsestraat and when that closed, the three male founders opened a huge shop of the Woustraat in December 2012. There you can find a collection of unique items: clothing, art, books and cool gifts. Made by young entrepreneurs. Because they receive hundreds of requests per week from designers who also like to sell their stuff at Hutspot, but they simply didn’t have enough space, they decided to look for a new and bigger (1000m2!) property. And they found it in a former syrup factory on the Rozengracht. Hutspot Rozengracht opened this weekend and Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: CUISSE DE GRENOUILLE PARIS

November 29th, 2013

cuissedegrenouilleparis

Most striking feature:

The wooden interior is shaped like a wave. Cuisse de Grenouille is a brand from Paris for, as they like to call it, the gentleman surfer. A man who loves to surf, but also has that cool Parisian vibe. And even if you don’t surf, you will love their items. I’ve spotted a cool hoodie which was made out of a towel from inside. If you come out of the water you can directly put it on and you will be dry in a few seconds. Their board shorts not only look good and colorful but Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: CENTRE COMMERCIAL KIDS PARIS

November 28th, 2013

centrecommercialkids

Most striking feature:

There’s an elephant in the shop. Tell that to your kids and they will definitely want to go shopping with you. Next to that the shop is full of beautiful clothes from brands like Mini Rodini, Petit Bateau, OEuf and Bobo Choses. They also sell shoes, books, the immensely popular coloring plate of the world and they organise workshops on Wednesday afternoon. So the kids can learn how to make Christmas decorations or how to bake from Christophe Vasseur from the famous bakery Du Pain et Des Idées. The owners of the shoe brand Veja decided to open Centre Commercial (for adults) a few years ago and the stylish people who shop there were having babies and asked them frequently: ‘can’t you open a Centre Commercial kids, so I have a place to go for cool kidswear too?’ So they did. What Read more…

TRIED & TESTED: DAMAGE PLAYGROUND ROTTERDAM

November 15th, 2013

Damage Playground

Most striking feature:

The location. Damage Playground is located in Rotterdam-Zuid, near metro station Rijnhaven. Not really the Pannenkoekstraat or the Meent, but that doesn’t matter. Damage Playground is a successful online shop and people who know of the high quality range they sell, take the subway (or car, because you can still park for free in this area of Rotterdam). The store is now open for a little more than a year and sells brands like Wood Wood, BWGH, United Nude and Opening Ceremony. For both men and women. However, they not only sell international brands, as Read more…
