Yawn Space

yawnThere’s a new concept store in town. One with a very particular concept: fashion, accessories and items from Russia, Georgia and the Ukraine.

I had no idea what to expect when visiting the shop. Luckily, owners Eugene and Vladimir were more than happy to guide me through all things on display. As it turns out, designers from the former Soviet Union burst with creativity and it’s no surprise some of them got picked up by fashion magazines such as Vogue. Russian Anton Belinskiy for instance, whose collection is sold at Yawn – he even made a specially designed series of t-shirts and sweatshirts with a big print of hands spelling Y A W N in sign language.

Spread over two (small) floors, you’ll find clothes and accessories in bright colours. I really liked the graphic necklaces by Dis/Order (the picture above is from their collection). The leather backpacks by Pleathure are pretty cool too, with their hidden zips they’re perfect for your daily commutes (if you too had your wallet or phone stolen on a busy tram or bus, I’m sure you’ll agree).

The Yawn team (or family as they call themselves) are planning quite a few cool things for Christmas, which is abundantly celebrated in Russia. Be sure to pay them a visit when you’re next in the area!

65, Rue du Vieux Marché aux Grains, open Mon – Wed 12.00-20.00 and Thu – Sat 12.00-22.00
