A day in Brussels

Boucle d’or

The store recently grew in size, adding a basement full of gifts, books, furniture and boy’s stuff. A must in Brussels.

Gorgeous northern light

.

The store (Em72), featuring jewelry, accessories, books as well as clothing by brands carries Forte Forte and Inamorato, two labels that I really like.

.

 If you are looking hip, colorful clothes, Claude Hontoir is the right spot for you, especially for 6-10 years old children. Amazing choice.

This store has been around for a long time – it’s an institution in Belgium.

I have a weakness for Little Circus. Lovely, charming, full of surprises and very creative displays.

.

Other spots not to be missed : Caramel, Mercredi, Kat en Muis, We were small  (children’s stores); Maison particuliere and the Wiels Museum (art).

And a great restaurant : Vismet. Sint-Katelijneplein 23 Place Sainte-Catherine, 1000 Brussels

Few and far : buy less / buy better

Sister of Sir Terence Conran and married to Chef Antonia Carluccio, Priscilla Carluccio opened Few and Far in 2008. The store is one of the most interesting retail proposals of the moment in London (even if not very new), offering a creative mix of inimitable pieces from artisans including tableware, furniture, toys, clothes and jewellery. 
.
No designer names or brand logos in the store; the products, which are sourced in Europe, Morocco, Mongolia and India, reflect a high level of manufacturing as well as a deep love for beautiful materials, textures and shapes.
.
The inspiring and theatrical displays are in constant change, creating excitement every time you visit. If you are around at this time of the year, don’t miss the Christmas Market, full of good surprises. I highly recommend the tiara; a real hit !
