Snapshot at Dries VN shop in Antwerp
This fabric has been woodblock printed ; look how amazing this handwork looks !
Every day, I pass at least 1 time the Dries van Noten shop here in Antwerp. Not because I'm stalking the handsome salesman that works over there but just because Sebastian, my 5 year old, wants to take the tram to go to school. He has a tram-addiction. He likes the ride, watching all the stores he likes (particularly the mall where his fav playstore is) on his way to school. I'm a fool but I have to admit I like the warm cosy ride too - even though we are way quicker if we just would walk to school.
Since last Friday, new collection has been displayed in the DVN shop.
My nose must have left a greasy mark on every tram-window I have been on : this is such a beautiful display, EVERY time !
But this season ; WOW !!
He really got inspired by African/ethnic fabrics ...
He has managed to create a collection that looks Paris on top and African beauty down the waist ... LOVE it !
Correction : ADORE it !
Yesterday hubby picked me up in my shop after closing hours and normally we would go and have a relaxing drink somewhere in the city.
But I asked him to take a look at the window display at Dries'...
I'm getting inspired by just looking at this shop...
I even managed to get hubby inside. He likes Dries too. The suits are perfect for him.
The place was busy, crowded and except for this one politician + wife who 'polluted' the scene...everything was perfect.
Shoes, dresses, jackets, skirts, suits, scarfs, belts ..... aaaahhhhhh !
Hubby seemed to be mesmerized too ; he immediately 'fell' for this scarf and silk shirt ...
And he did not forget his lovely wife :-)
He got me this beautiful jacket and flashy pyton leather green belt.
