products

belgian fashion labels, mostly, men and women... be prepared to sell a kidney. most clothes are serious fashion-as-art clothes. pretentiousness was never so understated.

service

deconstructed black-clad fashion veterans ex-ipanema. friendly and intimidating [if that's a possible combination?].

interior

no wood, or at least, soon there won't be. owner is distraught that there is a small patch of wood left somewhere in shop. dramatic entrance [down stairs] to airy whitewashed concrete fashion chapel. cool lift well.

ambience

>> industrial minimal fashion bunker <<

shop opened recently [actually a decade ago] by 'the girls from ipanema' [ipanema stocks rick owens, haider ackermann, ann demeulemeester, martin margiela and other arthouse clothes] in cooler-than-thou underground fashion bunker shrine on little collins street.
