It may be Movember, but fashionable men are already done with hipster beards and moustaches. Instead, get a shave and a signature style haircut at your local barber and donate some cash to the Cancer Foundation.
The poster, shaves, haircuts and a complimentary glass of Johnnie’s are available at Schorem Haarsnijder en Barbier, Nieuwe Binnenweg 113, Rotterdam
Warning! No ladies allowed, but they can do some “complementary” shopping in the city
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 plexiglass photograps on my wall please.
Every fashion journalist has a fave designer for whom personal admiration is stronger than journalistic objectivity. 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 (Home), Monki and Weekday. And I’m particulary happy with the last one, since they also stock Swedish 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.
