Cosmopolitan once wrote that Antwerp is the fifth fashion capital of the world. As a Belgian brand based in Antwerp, we are very proud to hear this and we can’t support other Belgian brands enough. In honour of ‘Belgian Fashion Day’ we would like to introduce you to five of our favourite Belgian fashion brands that you can combine perfectly with (an) LNKnits item(s). Some of the brands you might know from the yearly ‘Behold the Belgian Bunch’ pop-up in our store.
1. Love Sundaily
Love Sundaily is a brand that only produces clothing in velours. It stands for elegance, comfort and coziness. That is exactly why we love it!
The El Centro trousers in navy (Love Sundaily) and the Good Girl in Off White (LNKnits) are a match made in heaven. Both items have an oversized, yet classy and trendy look. To make the look complete wear a Perle Beanie in Moss Green (LNKnits).
2. Mieke Dierckx
Forget diamonds, purses are a girl’s real best friends! Mieke Dierckx plays with different techniques, patterns and materials to make unique handbags. And who doesn’t love a unique piece?
Such a stylish & classy piece as the Fine Filippa in Moss Green (LNKnits) needs a stylish & classy handbag, like the Mini Briefcase olive/kaki/white (Mieke Dierckx). For cold winter days you can add the Long Lucy in Off White (LNKnits) to this elegant outfit.
3. Sea Me Happy
Sea Me Happy is a feel good brand that uses colourful organic fabrics and all the items are handmade with a tie-dye technique. It inspires people to travel and to do what they love. What is not to love?!
The Kimono tie-dye 7 (Sea Me Happy) screams Indian summer. Since we are mid October the chances of another Indian summer are rather slim. But no need to worry, you can still wear this beautiful piece when it’s cold outside, by adding a Beanie in Berry Pink (LNKnits) and a Mini Maria (LNKnits). A perfect and colourful outfit!
4. Rue Blanche
Since 1987 Rue Blanche designs clothes for everyday living. It aspires to be sophisticated, stylish and modern. Four reasons why Rue Blanche deserves a spot on our favourite Belgian brand list!
This outfit is ideal if you want to wear stylish, comfy and warm clothes. Wear the beautiful blue Pluton PJ32 (Rue Blanche) in combination with the Sassy Stevie in New Light Grey (LNKnits). Wear the 20’s Headband in New Light Grey (LNKnits) to complete this killer outfit.
A handmade jewelry line that is inspired by travels, simplicity and vibrance. Geometry and simple lines are two keywords to describe the brand. NimZu is the definition of ‘less is more’, which is why we fell in love with this brand.
Staying in the spirit of ‘less is more’ the Gold Plated Tiny Moon Necklace (NimZu) and a black Cosy Charlotte (LNKnits) are a perfect match. If you want to give your outfit a dash of color you can add the Big Bertha (LNKnits) in Autumn Yellow. Wear the Big Bertha straight, so the beautiful necklace is still visible. We are over the moon with this elegant and sophisticated look (pun intended)!
