    Maybe due for a day visit as I also want to check out walter beirendonck's shop too. It can be a Belgique designer pilgrimage.

    except wbv and ann have completely different aesthetics...

    My style vascillates quite differently and crosses genres. Anyways, the Six all use to study, muse together before venturing off to their own empires. Annie on drums, Walter on bass, Van Noten on triangle, Birkemburg on keys, and rest were backups.

    This season's scarves are quite wearable - when I walk by this sailing shop in covent garden and see the ropes, I think of him.

    fwiw I heard from a friend who went to the Ann D store in antwerp that it's minimalist as heck and barely anything worth purchasing. She thinks she actually saw Ann though... do designers often hang out at their HQ stores?

    Only complaint I have of her is a slight overuse of black, at least as of late, but that is moreso personal taste than objective criticism.
    [​IMG] Also I've never seen the Antwerp store, but it looks incredible from photographs.

    I always try to look out for Vivienne Westwood but do see her cycling from time to time in south london - she's not hard to miss. Let's hope she treats her employees to a better xmas party this year as my friend said it was pants last year.

    I think we are going to amsterdam for nye so will do a little flemish tour - will take covert photos and report back.

    never understood this sort of style, or the people of sz who wear nothing but it every single day.

    Try to find a non-black jacket of hers, not an easy task, I'm allowed to have an opinion aren't I? (Don't answer that)

    Whoa, I need to stop by sometime, that looks awesome. I own a total of one sweater from annd and even though the pattern isn't very special, it still fits perfect and material is amazing.

    Mentioning Gucci in Ann D thread should be grounds for permaban. (0)
