yeah,Louis is the first shop to carry all the Belgians. Used to be only Belgian designers there before Gert Bruloot(former owner) turned it over somebody else. Now its not so exclusive anymore with Rick Owens and Balenciaga there. Its still,however,the best for Belgian designers.
Btw,Wim Neels,perhaps the most discreet of the Belgians has a new shop in Antwerp too. He opened his a month or two before Veronique.
I wasn't impressed with Louis' selection - too few pieces, the space is small. But I got my most prized possession there, a pair of pants from Raf Simons "Archives" - a tiny collection of his classics Raf created especially for Louis the season he went on sabbatical (spring 01).
Oops, sorry to take this off topic.
