PARIS — Empowered by financial backing from its new investors, Belgian fashion brand A.F. Vandevorst is setting up its first flagship — 16 years after the husband-and-wife duo An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx founded the label in their native Antwerp.
“It’s a small store, but in a great location,” Arickx said of the 650-square-foot unit, slated to open today on Lombardenvest 20 in Antwerp’s city center, a stone’s throw from Dries Van Noten and Acne Studios. “The district has no name, it’s just where fashion is sold,” he added.
