On the hunt for hotspots

Jutka Riska - Nationalestraat 87
Jutka Riska sells secondhand designer items and coordinates by color and style. I was very impressed with the selection they made and the items looked like new. They had the cutest ivory & black Chanel bag I can’t stop thinking about…

Louis - Lombardenstraat 2
Louis is filled with a fine selection of brands like Acne, Margiela, Balenciaga, Lanvin, Rick Owens and Ann Demeulemeester. It was actually the first store in Antwerp to stock clothes from the Antwerp Six, so for sure they know what they’re doing there ;) And the best part? I won an impressive gift card to this store for snapping all the items from the Fashion hunt!

Lombardia - Lombardenvest 78
Well, what to say about Lombardia, it’s such a unique place! Just have a look at the interior. During the Fashion hunt we had an amazing drink called Ginger love. It was a hot ginger drink with fruit and a piece of mango I think? Sweet + spicey = a delicious drink.

In Fine - Grote markt 19
A bit overwelming at first, this place is packed with perfume bottles. So much to smell, so little time! The purpose of all these different fragrances is to compose a personal perfume that fits your personality.

Furniture and Cloting Selection - Timmerswerfstraat 8
Another great stop if you’re into vintage items is FCS. Combining jewelry (Chanel!), clothes and furniture with a retro feel makes this an interesting store to browse for hidden treasures.

Labels inc. - Aalmoezesnierstraat 4
At Labels inc. you’ll find second hand items from the hottest Belgian designers. What’s better than Martin Margiela, Dries van Noten and Ann Demeulemeester for a fraction of the original price? Fun detail; the window is used as a small expo for upcoming Belgian designers.

Zuiderterras - Ernest Van Dijckkaai 1
After the Fashion hunt we met up at the Zuiderterras. It’s a bar/restaurant with a front-to-wall window that looks out over the haven. It has a very interesting interior, with a bar in the middle that’s a few meters higher than the rest of the place. And the food was incredible… Looking at the dishes everyone had, I realized I had to go back to try those as well!

Day # 2 of our Antwerp adventure started out by going on the hunt for fashion items througout Antwerp. Three groups of bloggers were guided by a true antwerp fashion insider, like
Tanguy and the Fashion Observer. So Tanguy showed us around and we had an great time with him! And me and Renee actually won! This is a guide through some of the spots I discovered during the fashion hunt.
