Antwerp has RA, Brussels has got Hunting and Collecting.
Belgium's got it going on! (Liège where you at?)
Unfortunately we couldn't make it to the opening. No biggie apparently, because the moment we set foot in the shop (300 square metres.. So bbbb-bow down) owners Niels and Aude offered to give us a private tour.
So while they were browsing the PAM A/W 10-11 lookbook (2ManyDJs up in there! + the best jackets for winter!), I walked around and took pics of the place.
Here are my favourites :
I've been obsessing over this PAM bag for two days now. So I think I might have to act on my urges.
Good and honest price tag too.
These are Band Of Outsiders. Love them.
Ok, so these are hands down the best pinata's I have ever seen. They are filled with handmade confetti.
Designed by New Yorkers Confetti System, who also design stage props for little known bands like MGMT and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
KNOTORYUS office party material!
Can't ever go wrong with a tag like that breathing down your neck.
Great window displays.
If you support it, you buy it.
We got a PAM shirt for the main cheese and bi-colored knitted kiddie collants (one leg = black, the other's cream) for the lil' one.
