Yana loves Leonard

This is the beautiful Yana, a regular in our Antwerp store who was kindly willing to showcase this awesome floral Leonard sweater. The same colorful print can be found on the (school?!) bag held by the less lively mannequin in the picture below. Both are on sale in our Antwerp store LAST CHANCE to get them marked down from 125 euro to 109 euro (sweater) and from 75 euro to 65 euro (bag). Thanx Yana you have not only proven to be a valued customer, during this shoot you defenitely earned the title of Antwerps next top model. Next time we need a mannequin we know where to find you!

Today is the day: Time for a golden start of the new school year '10-'11. Have you decided on your schoolbag and a new favorite school uniform yet? We have had a shipload of new bags coming in last week, all big enough to fit your precious educational paperwork and cool enough to keep you from looking like a geek gone bad ;-) On top they totally fit in the most tight of students budgets. Most of the autumn collection is in stores as well, so as long as homework is slow, come in and check it out!

OnStreet: Shanice

Last week Shanice was checking out our Haarlem store. We liked her style, so we wanted to give all of you the opportunity to check her out:

InStore: Our very own bag lady Jiske

Jiske is the originator of the big YSL and Chanel fan totes. In the last couple of weeks she has proven to be a true specialist when it comes to making super cool one-ofs. As of today we are not only true fans of YSL and Chanel: Jiske can welcome her very own personal fanbase! Go Jiske, Go! We want more, we want more!!!
Wannna become a fan too? From now on no need to beg, steal or borrow, you can simply BUY these cuties in our Amsterdam store! And maybe you will be able to catch a glimpse of their maker? ;-)

When it rains...

....We buy umbrella's. And what are the incredible odds: while brightening up this grey day checking out Katie's wonderful blog, it appears she is rocking exactly the same umbrella as the ones we brought to our stores today (will arrive in Antwerp tomorrow)! As of tomorrow: You can stand under Katie's umbrella... and look just as fabulous in the rain!

As of tomorrow in store:

Our valued customer Manuela felt comfortable enough to finally show us her design skills. We were sold instantly and brought a variety of her great colorful 100% handmade and unique Manjewell accessories to our stores. She finished the production today, so the exotic hairpins, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and other funky stuff will hit our stores by tomorrow afternoon (Haarlem and Amsterdam) and Wednesday afternoon in Antwerp. Oh I love it when cute accessories come together ;-)

If anyone wonders what time it is, just ask our colleague Liza! Problem is, she just can´t decide what colour to get... Since last a week we sell these funky digital watches. They come in hot pink, black and white. If you also have a hard time to choose your pick, you should know that they come at the incredible price of only 18 euros each, so you might as well buy all three colours Liza!
