Smets Premium Store

Finally, Brussels has got its very own paradise for fashion lovers. No more trips to London or Paris, the very best clothing, cosmetics and interior deco brands are all to be found at the enormous concept store Smets.

Smets is the name of the family who founded the shop in Luxemburg, in 1986. The first Belgian shop is located near Place Meiser, and is about 3.000 square meters large. Enough space to find some of my favourite brands together: Marc Jacobs, Isabel Marant, Mcq by McQueen, Alexander Wang, … Shoe addicts will be pleased to see Manolo Blahnik among the many other brands.

If, like me, you change your nail varnish as often as you change your socks, you’ll be pleased to find the whole OPI collection, as well as a lovely lady who’ll happily do your nails for only a fiver! Other make-up brands include Bobbi Brown, Bumble and Bumble, Essie and Christophe Robin.

To spice up your interior, Smets also sells a large collection of furniture by Kartell for instance. Scented candles come from Belgian brand Baobab and I also saw some nice ones in a Keith Haring decorated cup. I was quite pleased to discover a whole collection of tea by the Parisian brand Mariages Frères too.

If you’re getting a bit hungry while shopping, or need a glass of wine to ponder over a big purchase, the store also houses a delightful restaurant.

I can’t wait to visit the shop again, but first  … I need to start saving up.

650-652, Chaussée de Louvain, open from Monday until Saturday, between 10.30-19.00
