Well, I went there for Dirk Bikkimbergs whose first line is next to impossible to get in NYC. I can get HL cheap here
I just like everything about Antwerp - it's cozy, yet everything is in place, culture, fashion, beer, chocolate. It has a wonderful strip of modern architecture along the river, and plenty of old architecture. It has a decent night life, nothing like NYC, but I enjoyed Velvet Lounge and Little Buddha. It's a stone throw from Amsterdam, Paris, London. What else does one need? I wanna mooooooooooooove!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boy, do you know if Dirk B. opened his store in Antwerp yet? I know Veronique Branqhuino was opening one last time I was there. Is Raf ever planning to open a store? His accessories are impossible to find!!!
