amsterdam: kabinet store opening

a new fashion source launched sometime ago in amsterdam's canal district maze. dubbed kabinet, the store combines the best of vintage designer fashion with edgy contemporary labels and creates a retail ambiance all its own. helmed by veteran vintage collector ferry van der nat, the store mainly stocks womenswear but will gradually expand its sharp range of menswear items which currently includes labels such as sjaak hullekes, pop cph and later this year also jean//phillip. kabinet's quirky endeavours are reflected in the shop's interior. although the size of a dollhouse [albeit an expanding one, as plans are underway to add retail space in the back section and basement], it isn't short of artsy visual drama by means of a silvery metal-plated floor, stacks of little vintage cabinets and a draped wall. location: herenstraat 13 [centrum]. © kabinet
