THIS IS THE KIND OF STORE WHERE YOU WANT TO GET EVERYTHING!
Does your heart skip a beat when you see pretty things? Then at X Bank you’re at the right address! This concept store is 700 m2 big and is filled with Dutch Design. Everything that is sold here is designed in The Netherlands. And a lot in Amsterdam as well! The store has two floors that both have very different personalities.
The second floor is a must-visit! A beautiful light area that’s full of gorgeous clothing, but where, besides fashion (for ladies and gents!), you can also get art, home accessories, jewellery, beauty products and more. A nice thing about X Bank is that they offer affordable brands such as Scotch & Soda, and Anecdote, but also unique items from high fashion brands. So, even with a smaller budget you can come here for a nice gift for yourself or a friend. Curious about the store? Check out the new video!

At X Bank Amsterdam there are switching art exhibitions on the ground floor that you can admire. They change regularly so it’s best to check the website to see what’s on. The shop is part of the W Hotel in Amsterdam and is located next to the delicious restaurant The Duchess. It’s by far the nicest store in a hotel you’ve ever seen!
The round staircase brings you to the first floor and you won’t get be able to get enough of it. Whenever I go to shop here my wish list grows bigger by the time I leave. I get so inspired by the collections and diversity of the products that they have! The new X Bank spring collection is in, so if you’re in the area you should really have a look.
