12 x fashion stores in amsterdam you don’t want to miss
Essentiel Antwerp: Essentiel Antwerp is one of our favourite shops in Amsterdam! The new Fall / Winter 2017 collection is all about miracles and fairy tales. Mythical figures and heroines can be seen in the prints of the clothes, but also in the accessories, like bags, shawls and jewelry. How nice!
Catwalk Junkie: Good news for those who likes unique prints and relaxed sweaters. Around the corner of the Berenstraat, on the Prinsengracht you can find a big flagship store where you can shop the full collection of Catwalk Junkie.
We Are Labels: If we’re in need of a new outfit, one of our favourite place to go is We Are Labels in Amsterdam! The concept at We Are Labels is simple and original. You’ll find mostly cool, international brands. And all of good quality, fine fabrics and both trendy and classic items.
Fabienne Chapot: Here you can go for the most beautiful one of a kind clothes, bags, shoes, keychains, phone cases and more. For what nót you might better ask ;-) They also often have sample sales on the weekend so keep an eye on their website for the best discounts.
Love Stories: For the most beautiful lingerie you go to Love Stories on the Herengracht. From soft trangle bralettes to boxers, oversized velvet shirts, socks and bodysuits with the most fun and sexy prints and fabrics: they have it here ;-)
Wen: Wen is your to go to if you are looking for fun gifts for friends and beautiful clothes and accessories to treat yourself. Here you’ll find clothing brands you find nowhere else in Amsterdam. They have two locations, at the Hoofddorpplein and on the Maasstraat.
Anna + Nina: Anna + Nina has been growing and now have a concept store on three locations in Amsterdam where you can buy very nice living accessories, cute must-haves and things like jewellery. It’s guaranteed you will find something here! Worth a visit when you find yourself walking around in the Pijp (the Gerard Doustraat), Reguliersgracht or in the city centre (Kloveniersburgwal).
Thinks I Like, Things I Love: A unique combination of vintage, secondhand, new clothing and customised items. At Things I Like, Things I Love the collection changes almost on a weekly base. And it’s a nice place to get some cute gifts too! One of the all time favourites at Yourlbb.
We Are Vintage: At We Are Vintage on the Kinkerstraat you’ll find vintage clothing, shoes, bags, hats, and scarves for women and men! This is also a one of the vintage shops in Amsterdam where you pay per kilo. Whether you’re looking for funky pants, or more basic vintage, you’ll find it. The shop has a second location in East as well!
l’Étoile De Saint Honoré: At L’étoile you’re at the right address for bags. Large bags and totes, small cross body bags, suitcases and small leather goods like wallets. In the store at the Heiligeweg you find brands like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermês, Balenciaga and more. The stock changes often so it’s best to check-in regularly!
Jutka & Riska: At Jutka & Riska you can buy vintage clothing, their own label and the prettiest accessories! I like to come here to look for a new hat or a cute bag. The shop has a lot of unique products to offer which is why the prices can be a bit pricier. Extra nice: they have two locations! On the Bilderdijkstraat and Haarlemmerdijk.
Tenue de Nîmes: Fan of jeans? Go to Tenue de Nîmes! This jean concept store is not only perfect to score a good pair of jeans, but also ideal if you are looking for nice shoes, scarves, bags and other accessories.
