Whether it's Stijl, GloryBox, Annemie Verbeke or Icon, Dansaert has become "the" neighbourhood where fashionistas shop for designer clothes in Brussels. Careful, though, this part of town has a lot of other surprises!
Can't leave the area without buying something signed by a Belgian designer, whether it's Raf Simons or Ann Demeulemeeester? You read an interview with the Filles à Papa in the Officiel? You've been obsessing over clothing by Isabel Marant? Then you absolutely have to go to the Dansaert district which is now backed by more mainstream labels like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sandro, Maje and Zadig & Voltaire. But, I'm warning you. Your credit card will overheat!
Dansaert is to Brussels what the Marais is to Paris, even for people who hate fashion. It’s an arty-chic neighbourhood that energises Europe's capital and where it's fun to shop around. Art galleries, design boutiques, great bars and restaurants make sure that this part of town totally deserves its excellent reputation!
I work as a fashion consultant, tear through the papers every morning, race off to concerts whenever I can and claim ""belgitude"" as a guarantee of original quality! My little extra: new shops, trendy concept-stores, organic restaurants and artists' workshops.
