The physical store, located in an under-construction retail space at 16 Lange Gasthuisstraat, is to open Sept. 4 on weekends only, serving up a new decor, merchandising and vibe each week with DJ sets alongside the fashion, through Oct. 13.
The retail concept was initiated by Simons, his commercial director Charlotte Arts and the photographer Willy Vanderperre.
