2. Love Stories Boutique

At eight minutes walking distance from our head office, you’ll come across Love Stories. One of the most popular lingerie brands at the moment. Where you can not only find beautiful bralettes, but also comfortable swimwear and loungewear. Be inspired by the latest campaigns in the concept store, which is located right next to the boutique. And complete your visit by entering the boutique or the so-called ‘House of Love’. This is where you can find the rest of the collection.

3. Mendo

When you have visited Love Stories, you might as well walk a little further to switch from love for lingerie to love for books. This beautiful bookstore in The Nine Streets is not made of brick, but of thousands of black books. Be seduced by the most beautiful table books and unique publications. Even if you’re not a bookworm, it is worth a visit because of the inspiring design.

Just a little further or a little back (there are two locations), you can go to Pluk for a nice bite. Whether you prefer a healthy lunch or some tasty treats from the sweet corner. Moreover, this is also the place to buy some nice gifts. For interior accessories, kitchenware, jewelry and greeting cards you’ve come to the right place.

Yes, you read that well, a library for fashion. Where you can not only buy clothes but also borrow them. The perfect solution to wear a new item without having to buy it. And of course to prevent a bad buy. But it is also nice to just walk inside and take a look.
