iSpot, thanks for that! I knew I hit a lot of stores in Antwerp, but I see that I missed a few good ones. Het Zeid was definitely awesome - wonderful architecture along the river, straight out of an architecture magazine! Is Little Buddha still open? We had dinner and drinks there, it was a sweet place, very friendly.

One of the few pictures I took in Antwerp.

Labels Inc.....I was mad when I found out that place opened AFTER I left. Could've saved a me a bit of money...actually alot of places I notice opened after I left.

Places I loved...goodness...I love Louis and Walter and Naughty I is brilliant as well for second-hand. They've a excellent selection of vintage Burberry trenches....and I bought a gorgeous YSL biker jacket there for 40(I've mentioned it before,I know!! ) Anna Heylen also has a sweet little shop at Lombardenvest 44....just a door or two from APC.

Stephen Schneider,Christoph Broich,Cocodrillo(shoe galore!),CDG/Yamamoto/[and now]Undercover...

Faust,what street is that...I recognize it! You people are making me terribly homesick...yes I said home

I hear you loud and clear. This is the main drag that starts at the train station. The gorgeous woman in the middle is my then-girlfriend now-wife.

de Meir...ah yes! See,I must return as I'm beginning to lose all the valuble details. Of course,I spent most time in the central part of town so I remember it a bit more clearly. Kammenstraat(walked that street every single day from where I was staying on Terninckstraat);Nationalestraat,Groenplaats,Schutt ershofstraat(as mentioned)Lombardenvest,Steenhouwersvest. Those are all my old stomping grounds,if you will.

I hope when I do return,it'll be permanent.

Oh how do I love Antwerp! Pretty much all the great shops I could think of were mentioned here. The Kammenstraat seems to be adding lots of new shops lately, since it's becoming more and more popular. Oh and for Viktor&Rolf lovers: go to Princess Blue, there are always some collection pieces to be found there!

At Closing Date you will find Vivienne Westwood jewelry as well as her clothes, Dsquared, La Fille D'O and I think Andrew Mc Kenzie but I'm not to sure on that one .

Whatever happened to Gert Motmans and Tom De Poortere's(ex-Academy students)shop I'TM? Did they close it? I noticed on the ModeNatie web site the address is no longer there.
