Les Enfants d’Edouard

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on June 17, 2012 in Clothes, Ixelles, Shoes |

This could well be the oldest vintage/second-hand shop in Brussels. It has been open for almost 40 years, and was founded by two friends whose father was called Edouard (hence the name). 

The shop is located in a beautiful and huge old mansion. That alone is worth a visit. Once inside, you’ll be overwhelmed by the racks of clothes. Trousers, blazers, skirts, dresses, shirts … there’s an overload of everything. From Chanel to Dries Van Noten, the list of designers and brands is endless too.

And when you think you’ll never be able to browse all the things on the ground floor, know that there’s a big staircase taking you to the second floor with even more clothes and shoes.

Accessories and handbags are displayed in pretty wooden cupboard and on shelves, and there are a couple of fitting rooms and enough mirrors to try stuff on.

A lot of the clothes and shoes come from people who sell them through the shop. If you have some pretty designers stuff in your wardrobe you longer wear or that no longer fits, make an appointment with the shop and let them sell it for you. Modern recycling.

Note: I only visited the shop for women, but there’s one for men too, just next door.

175-177 Avenue Louise, open from Monday until Saturday between 10.00-18.30
