Looking for a shopping destination? Ghent it is! When it comes to shopping this beautiful city is no longer inferior to Antwerp, Brussels,…. Read more and discover the new walhalla for the fashion addicts.
Mango and COS recently opened a new shop in the city streets and in December Primark will finally make its entrance. Still not satisfied? I got good news for you! A few days ago the Swedish fashion brand & Other Stories announced that they will open a shop in Ghent. Veldstraat 2 will be the new hotspot for all you fashionista’s. Until the opening in spring 2015 you can find & Other Stories in Antwerp and Brussels or just shop online!
Many of us were truly sad when Mango left Ghent in 2009. This Spanish high street fashion brand is perfect for when you’re looking for basics with a little touch of luxury. They also have a plus size line Violeta.
COS (Collection of Style) is the minimalistic and slightly higher priced brother of the High Street Fashion brand H&M. If you like to wear modern and functional designs, this brand is right up your alley. They create timeless designs that live beyond the seasons. As COS likes to describe it themselves: “We work hard to create fashion pieces that look and feel at once classic and modern.”
Primark is probably one of the most popular high street fashion brands next to Zara and H&M. And most likely also the cheapest (and the one with the poorest quality). Primark, for me, is a store where I go to find items that stand out, items you can’t wear for several seasons. For example if you like to wear o-so-sexy traditional Christmas sweaters, you’ll find some cute ones at Primark.
& Other Stories is, just like COS, a brand under the H&M group and offers women a wide range of shoes, bags, accessories, beauty and ready-to-wear. Unlike COS, & Other Stories sells more on-trend items, giving women the opportunity to create their own style, their own story. “We believe that shoes, bags, jewelry, lingerie and beauty are key for styling and just as important as clothing. & Other Stories aims to design lasting wardrobe treasures within a wide price range.”
