Hi folks! How are you doing on this lovely Friday? I’m happy because the sun is shining and the weekend is upon us! But, first things first: let me tell you about yesterday night. Together with Stéphanie from Stylelab, I attended the opening of Closet, a new concept store in Antwerp. Two sisters, Katrien and Mieke Fonck, are the beauty and brains behinds this store. Their idea is that they want to give young designers a space where they can display their collections within a different, more flexible environment. Designers can rent a space in the store on a monthly basis and each month one designer gets a special display in “the closet”. This month that spotlight belongs to Lisa Colpaert.
There were definitely some fun items in the store, so I’m hoping I’ll win that coupon from Belmodo.tv, I already know what I would buy :) These are some of my favorite pieces.
How fun are these? That bear T-shirt is hilarious (they had one in a male & female version, I want to get matching ones for me & my boyfriend :D) They’re from a brand called Titi + The German Kid. Those jackets I’m holding also caught my eye, because the back sort of reminds me of villain eyes or something. Cool! The jackets are by Wackerhaus. These pastel colored pants were definitely my favorite! I totally loved the colors and kind of want them all. Perfect for spring, right?
Thanks to Closet for a fun night & I wish them lots of good luck with their new store!
I also have some news to share regarding the opening of the Forever 21 stores in Belgium. They asked me to be one of their promotors, so here I go! If you’re looking for a job in fashion & retail, stop by this Monday at the address mentioned above. They are looking for people to hire, so if you’re interested, you know where to go :)
That’s it for this week! Next week, I have a little announcement about another project so stay tuned :) (P.S. What do you think about my new “article” photo in the sidebar? That only took us about 300 shots to get this one ;))
