Best of the Antwerp Stock Sales (Feat. Raf & Dries)

By now, you have probably received a pop-up message from your banking app saying: “We already know what time it is, happy Belgian designer stock sales, hon!” to which you probably blinked, thinking: “The girls of Big Banking have all of my data but, honestly, the world is melting anyway so what can you do?” Or you just have a faint inkling there are some great Belgian designer pieces to be had around this time of year. Either way, from Monday November 5 until Sunday November 11, Antwerp braces for the 2018 autumn stock sales and here’s what you need to know for a successful run.

Beloved childrenswear designer Anne Kurris announced the closing of her label after 20 years earlier this week, stating her final SS19 collection will be available in stores at the end of December. Kurriss is not retiring but will stay on as faculty at the Antwerp Fashion Department and Sint-Lucas in Antwerp to continue sharpening those student designer minds. “There is nothing complicated about saying goodbye once you understand how it’s simply about vacating space for something new”, her statement read. Truth! Need any further reasons not to miss one of the last opportunities to spoil a kid in your life with some Anne Kurriss getups before it’s too late?
