|Hey, that' me!|
Hello my birds, as you may or may not know I love to travel. So far I have seen quite a few European countries but I've never been to Belgium. I had an opportunity to visit Antwerp. And let me tell you, I fell in love with this beautiful city. It is so astonishing, with its mixed Renaissance/Baroque/Gothic architecture, beautiful people and culture all around. For the one part of the day we walked around the city and got the feel of it. I think that The Cathedral was absolutely beautiful as well as general streets in Antwerp.
For the other part of the day we visited MoMu - Fashion Museum, I was pretty disappointed with it as I am used to free museums in London, which are a lot bigger. But hey, it is better than nothing. The building itself was spacious and visually attractive. I was a bit disappointed because the exposition itself was very tiny and everything was sectioned into garments rather than designers, which is such a pity, because I wanted to know the name of the designers. I also had an opportunity to speak with a few students here, which is always lovely. Oh, and I was surprised by the amount of conceptual fashion stores they had! Here are a few pieces, that caught my eye.
|Absolutely loved the laid back - chic look and high waisted silk trousers.|
|I might be very wrong but this looks like an old Lanvin piece, |
anyways I love the drapping for this one.
|This is so simple, yet effective, you can easily do this at home, I got some |
inspiration for a diy project!
|I wish these killer shoes were mine.|
Beautiful, young, fashionable and fresh! I would love to visit this city again and explore more of it, things like independent coffee venues, bars, more galleries, conceptual fashion store and vintage boutiques. Antwerp is one of the cities in my list, that I need to revisit and explore it further, at the end of the day I don't think that five hours are enough to get the full experience. Have you ever been to Antwerp, what are your thoughts? Would you go there again? Which places would you recommend?
