Antwerp, Belgium: My Shopping Selection @ Ra and Nadine Wijnants

I haven’t shopped for ages in Antwerp. What a shock! Many “new” top fashion designers during my first visit to the famous concept store Ra. Months ago, I met Romain Brau the owner of Ra at the Customisez Moi party in Brussels. In Kloosterstraat, while I admired these two great silver rings (pictures 3 & 4) in the window of the  jewelry designer Nadine Wijnants, I see by chance the concept store Ra! Where I discovered the “multidimensional” shoes of the talented Yuima Nakazato (pictures 1 & 2), graduated from the Antwerp Academy and the shoes designer of Lady Gaga. I recommend you this Dazed Digital interview of the Tokyo young designer. I also loved the fringed biker in pastel colors, Farfetch (last picture). Well Antwerp remains an exciting laboratory for fashion.

East Sussex, UK: Myerscough & Mairs, The Sophisticated Vintage Shop in Hastings

In Hastings, I selected two shops and one tea room I really liked. The first is: Myerscough & Mairs, a tiny shop  that mixes ancient and modern. A lovely selection of eclectic pieces (like violins) presented in a simple and refined way . The Boho chic with an orientalism touch, made me travel in time. Congratuls to the owners for their impeccable taste! The real pleasant surprise in a small city with too much vintage stores (I was about to make an overdose, I am not a big a vintage fan!).

Myerscough & Mairs : Antique + Modern, 52 High Street, Hastings tn43 3en, Phone: 01424 438695.

Sonia Rykiel, Paris: Chrismas windows

I really enjoy

these windows: the space is invaded by a very organised mess. Like most women do. A kind of cultured and refined and regressive and intimist eternal feminine. A Rykiel woman.
