Still a piece of my heart

Posted in Uncategorized by stylecouch on December 30, 2009

I left a piece of my heart in Antwerp already years ago and when I stumbled on these photos it just confirmed me that this city is loaded with fabulous design, inspiration and amazingly good taste – from my point of you! I am now dreaming myself into this wonderful house . The two founders of CSD Architecten,Britt Crepain & Stefan Spaens build this house for themselves in a narrow street in the Center of Antwerp, Belgium. In the designing and construction process, they focused on materials as natural as possible in colors flowing into each other. The inspiration for the color pallet was found on a beach in France (driftwood, pebbles, the color of the sand). Honestly, I felt a slightly jealousy…

THE ULTIMATE CITY OF FASHION

Posted in Fashion by stylecouch on June 19, 2009

Some of the most magnificent designers of our time saw the light in Antwerp. The Antwerp six refers to a group of  influental designers graduating from The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in the early 80s. The group consists of  Dries Van Noten, Ann Demaulemeester, Dirk Bikkembergs, Marina Yee, Dirk Van Saene and Walter Van Beirendonck. Last weekend the harbor of Antwerp was hosting a show representing the new innovative designers from the same school. Within the international jury you could, among others, find Danish Henrik Vibskov. Once again the school delievered a high-level show that might include up and coming stars of tomorrow!
