Rosier 41

Rosier 41

If you are in Antwerp and want to shop your heart out, then there is one spot that you shouldn’t miss… head straight to Rosier 41 (*clever name actually, as the street where it’s located is also Rosier 41). Boasting of homegrown labels like Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, and Martin Margiela to other well-loved (high-end) labels like Damir Doma, Balenciaga, Jil Sander, Rick Owens among many others, this place is fashion heaven!!!

What’s more is that they carry pieces from past seasons, and hardly-worn second hand pieces so the prices are just fraction of the retail price. Everyday they have new arrivals! What you see is what you get,hence, if you like it and it fits you, don’t think twice, buy it, because most likely when you go back, it won’t be there anymore.

International Fashion Trading:

Rosier 41 is the brainchild of the lovely couple Viviane and Paul Van Werelyckhuysen. Aside from well-established labels, they also support young talents. Every month, they feature young designers by giving them platform to showcase their collection through their boutique’s window display and by stocking their pieces.

dream closet!

I visited Rosier 41 first week of August, and lucky enough to be there while their featured designer for the month was doing his window display. Yoshihiro Kawasaki is a Paris-based Japanese designer and the man behind label “Hallelujah” . Super in-love with his linen and weathered-tweed loose coats.

And oh! Rosier 41 is located just across Raf Simons workshop, so there is a very high chance you would spot him. It was a fanboy moment when Viviane pointed out a black car parking across the shop and said that it was Raf Simons’, (*sheez) I was too shy to grab my camera, excuse myself from the meeting and run outside to have a picture with Raf Simons. lol So, I just looked out of the glass window and attempted a paparazzi  shot as Raf Simons went out of the car, took something out of the trunk and walked into his atelier’s door. (*few steps away..tsk..tsk…)

And yes, Renan Pacson pieces are now currently stocked at Rosier 41..yey!

Big love to Rosier 41  and of course to Viviane and Paul! 🙂
