6 things to do in Brussels for fashion and design lovers

Brussels is an incredible city to visit if you are a fashion enthusiast. The city is filled with so many young and highly talented designers, which create everything from luxury clothing, to shoes, accessories, leather products, frames for glasses and so on. If you care for exceptional quality and desire to wear items that respect the latest tendencies, a shopping session in Brussels will definitely grant all your wishes. Also, the items you buy from Brussels you can be sure that they are unique, because many designers release a limited number of items, because most of them are handmade, contain outstanding materials, and are made to be enjoyed not mass-produced. Thus, I am happy to share my secret shopping address book for when I travel to Brussels, which you won’t find printed in any other luxury travel book.

1. Discover Maison Degand – the finest tailor spirit and essence of luxury

It is impossible not to be amazed by the services and products of Maison Degand. This is a shop that was created exclusively for men, to satisfy their needs with a wide array of fine and exceptional products. A man will find everything he needs to look amazing at this shop, regardless if he is looking for a sharp outfit or for a casual one. Besides clothes, Maison Degand also provides shoes and state-of-the-art accessories, which complete your overall in an excellent manner. If you don’t find what you need already made, do note that the shop can create a bespoke outfit just for you. Having experienced tailors that know what is like to work at the highest standards, the apparel created here can easily rival the ones you can find at the biggest fashion houses in Europe. Exceptional quality, high class, elegance, and respect for men, this is what you are going to find at Maison Degand.

3. Look up Lunetier Ludovic – creator of bespoke glasses

Every person that wears glasses knows that they are more than just an object. A pair of glasses is an accessory that reflects their personality, their style, being something that is a part of who they are. So, it is no wonder that you probably didn’t find the perfect pair of glasses until today. If so, it is worth visiting Lunetier Ludovic, a shop where you will find exceptional bespoke frames for your eyeglasses. If you want a pair of frames that is especially made for you, it will be done by using the measures and shape of your face, while incorporating the details you consider ideal for a pair of glasses. The result will be glasses that are unique and flatter your physical traits.
