Wouldn’t you like to spend your lazy Sunday in this amazing city loft transformed by Mark Fuller architects? Two big lounge sofas, nine Tom Dixon Beat Lights and a collection of cool photograps on my wall please.
Every fashion journalist has her weak spot when it comes to her fave designers no matter how “good” or “bad” the collection. Alexander Wang - dropping out of Parsons at the age of 21 and ever since rocking two labels with his name, being creative director for Balenciaga and launching an H&M collab collection – is mine…Go Alex!
In Rotterdam we do like big concepts, after the grand opening of Markthal – renamed De Vreetkapel / The Food Chapel in good Rotterdam tradition – H&M opened the biggest brandstore in Europe! The former shop at De Koopgoot has been transformed into the biggest flagship- or should we say Viking ship – of H&M, Monki and Weekday. And I’m particulary happy with the last one, since they also stock Swedish high fashion labels Cheap Monday, Rodebjer, Carin Wester and Whyred.
Two more reasons why my hometown deserves that top 10 spot on The New York Times to-go list.
