Yesterday I said goodbye to Antwerp and headed on my way to Amsterdam. Antwerp was such a different experience from Paris in so many ways but I was pleasantly surprised with the number of trendy shopping destinations scattered amongst the city. Aside from the classic dutch designers, such as Ann Demeulemeester and Dries Van Noten, there were cool new boutiques to discover as well. Your! Boutique was definitely my favorite, fully equipped with hair salon and bookstore to accent the premium designer clothes and accessories. Other boutiques to note in Antwerp are Ra13, Renaissance, Clinic and Hospital. Each boutique has its own vibe and aesthetic while at the same time providing the customer with more than just a place to buy clothes but an entire shopping experience. I truly believe this is the future of brick-and-mortar retail and Antwerp has paved the way with seamless perfection.  [Below a few snaps from the three day excursion.]
