In Belgium the summer sales period starts the 1st of July and ends the 31st of july. We know that our Belgian designers are not the cheapest, but we know you’re willing to pay the price for innovative qualitative designs. There are places in Belgium where you can find Belgium’s finest at a fraction of the price. Yes, sales forever!
First of all you have Labels Inc. in Antwerp. Erna Vandekerckhove knows the ins and outs of the Belgian fashion scene. She has lived all her live in Antwerp and the Belgian designers have no secrets for her. That’s why she started Labels Inc. a few years ago. She carries second hand or last season stocks of Dries Van Noten, Martin Margiela, Raf Simons, Ann Demeulemeester and much much more. You can even hand in your old designer wear if you want to sell it there. Labels Inc. also offers their store window as a platform for young academy graduates.
And there’s a second Belgian cavern of Ali Baba that is hidden in the ‘Kempen’ region of Belgium: depot Pierre. I don’t think that many people of Mol know that their lovely city has a fashion gem. It’s hidden on a busy and ugly commercial road in a large trailer (!!!) on the parking lot of a tire shop. Owners Pierre and his wife are Belgian fashionistas from the first hour. They have been both at the Antwerp Academy so they know most of the Belgian designers personally. That’s the reason why they have such good selections: they are hand-picked together with the designers. Pierre also has an incredible knowhow on finishing, the inspiration and creation of the garment and the way you should wear it.
So if you already exploded your credit card but you still have that craving for Belgian designerwear Labels Inc. and depot Pierre are the places to be. Spend some more, you know you want to.
