Like a diamond in its casing, Essentiel is nestled in the elegant Avenue Louise. This Belgian clothing store quickly succeeded in attracting both men and women with its reinvented classics. The 600 m² retail outlet is a world unto itself.

Urban glamour


Essentiel’s clothing is designed for daily wear. It's easy to recognise the sleek and elegant lines, as well as the logo, a discreet silver crown. The collection's common thread is the glamour of urban living. The store includes a wonderfully feminine space, where the collection is on display in a boudoir with black and lilac tones and 1970s pinups adorn the walls of the fitting rooms.

A mix of styles


I like climbing the staircase to admire the array of randomly placed artistic photos. A few more steps and Steve McQueen is looking at me with his complicit eyes. You will find the black, white and red tones of the men's section at the top. And because Essentiel is a Lifestyle Store, it carries other labels like See by Chloe and Pedro Garcia.
