DVS boutique by Dirk Van Saene, Antwerp
The first floor boutique sits above the iconic shoe store Coccodrillo and features a modular interior highlighted with exceptional furniture. The racks, with matching mirrors and lamps, are created by Dutch designer Maarten Baas who took his clay furniture to another level. The low wooden tables with ceramic figurines were made by Dirk Van Saene himself, who after 30 years in the Belgian avant-garde scene, created his own little universe.
The boutique reflects his affection for haute couture and embraces at the same time the refinement of a traditional boutique. The best of independent Belgian talent can be found, including Dirkâ€™s eponymous collection, collections by Walter Van Beirendonck, complimented with sets by Frieda Degeyter, Sofie dâ€™Hoore, Monsieur Maison and the first garments signalling Veronique Branquinhoâ€™s return to fashion.
