Pop-up shop Gustav
Posh beach resorts have the tendency to be boring: we all know that Vuitton shows of there monogram bags and that the majority of galleries offers colorfull Niki de Saint Phalle lookalikes. But this summer we can actually go to Knokke and enjoy pop up shop 'Gustav'.
Gustav is the temporary wedding between Antwerp fashion label AF Vandevorst and Ghent Art Gallery Hoet Bekaert. This pop-up store offers a nice range of fashion, art, vintage furniture and jewellery. Within Gustav, AF Vandevorst is continuing there temporary Aktion story. 'Aktion II' continues where 'Aktion I' ended: providing even more womenswear, shoes, accessories, lingerie and bags.
In the back of this famous waffle house, Hoet Bekaert Gallery installed a selection its artists, including Amanda Ross-Ho, Caroline McCarthy and our personal favourite Hannes Vanseveren. To top off the concept Caroline Van Joek presents a fine selection of jewellery while Furniture Love is showcasing 20th century furniture. All that shopping will get you hungry! Coffee and cake house Barista provides Italian style coffees, organic drinks and sandwiches.
