Weekend Tip: The Antwerp Pop Up Route

By 1 0

It seems that this year the Holiday season sparked a series of pop ups here in Antwerp, something I can’t say I mind. In our current economical climate it is a way for new concepts to blossom and grow, without too much financial risk, much needed if you ask me.

So this weekend, head on over to Antwerp and visit these three pop up concepts in town, I’m betting you won’t regret it!

1. The Plantshop

The Plantshop

The lovely folks of Baroness O. teamed up with fashion designer Sofie Claes for a wonderful contemporary pop up shop at the Vlasmarkt. You can buy the items from the Baroness O. webshop, the designs of Sofie Claes, Magazines curated by Not too Arty and yes, also plants!

The Plantshop

Baroness O. and Sofie have created a wonderful home mist (€ 40) and hand- and bodylotion (€ 20) for the occasion in collaboration with Louison Libertin. And it does not stop there, the Plantshop also hosts dinners on thursday and breakfasts on sunday, and is also open for coffee. A must see!

2. Forrrest and the First Cup Launch

First Cup product launch

Coffeeklatch is most definitely one of my favorite stops on the internet. Magali and Bart have teamed up with LMBRJK, the subject of their latest Coffeeklatch, and are launching “First Cup” this saturday. This is also the start of the Forrrest pop up store, where 20 unique products will be sold for the holidays.
