Essentiel Store

Originally launched as a t-shirt label, this Antwerp-based fashion brand has grown into an internationally renowned label known for its colourful collection and graphic prints that blend romantic femininity with masculine nonchalance. While a commitment to quality and wearability remains, the latest collection is certainly anything but basic, with plenty of all-over prints and quirky detailing (a diamanté brooch here, a pop of sparkly silver stars there). At first glance, you could be fooled into thinking that women in Victoriana will dominate the street scene this season, but behind their demure appearance hides a rebellious character. Wild leopard is tamed in edgy oversized shapes, while modest pleated skirts are combined with loose-fitting sweaters. There are glamorous Sixties jackets, velvet platform shoes and luxe slippers. Looking for menswear? For Fall/Winter 2017, Essentiel has succeeded in juxtaposing iconic vs innovative and professional vs casual looks into the perfectly balanced wardrobe for today’s man
