L I F E / Finding Céline in Amsterdam






bomber: T by Alexander Wang
white tailored sweat pants: Missoni
shoes: Alexander Wang

Believe it or not, getting your hands on some Céline, Givenchy or Wang has always been nearly impossible in Amsterdam.
Some boutiques would occasionally carry a shoe, a bag, or a tee, but never those pieces you've seen come down the runway.
So you can imagine I was happy to hear that the rumors were true: department store De Bijenkorf really is becoming our own Dutch litte sister of Selfridges.
They invited Yara, Sabrina, Charlotte and me to come see (=feel, try on, smell, no that's creepy) their new acquirements for ourselves and spread the word.
I went for that structured bomber that I had already been stalking online for a while, De Bijenkorf let us borrow a couple of things, but I really don't want to bring this baby back.
So happy to finally have a place in the center of the city, that has its racks filled with all the stuff from my favorite Paris and New York designers,
which I usually only admire through my computer screen (you know I'm talking about you mr. Lim and mr. Wang).

I actually found great labels in Amsterdam - and all so heavily discounted long before everyone else (UK, Paris etc) even started to go on sale. Mostly from small boutiques in the 9 streets from memory. This department store sounds lovely too.

Yes there are a lot of really nice boutiques in the 9 streets, I love the Scandinavian labels they carry!

that bomber is fantastic, a great piece for spring

Chantelle said...

This is so great for you! I always forget how easy it is for us in North America to get any pieces we want. But other countries have a harder time procuring these designers.

Oroma Roxella Rukevwe said...

I wouldn't want to give the jacket back either!
