What: Yastik by Rifat Özbek, Shop Where: Istanbul, Turkey In…
What: Boutique Belgique
Where: Cologne, Belgisches Viertel
“You’ve got to go – this is the top shopping destination of Cologne – trés chic”, told me my friend Charlotte, when I was planning my recent trip to the Rhine-Main area. No sooner said than done. Located in “Belgisches Viertel” of Cologne – which is also known for its many pubs and restaurants – shop founder Lena Terlutter established her fashion and lifestyle store “Boutique Belgique”. A total of four stores, because trendsetter Terlutter is very business-minded.
Only one year ago “BB LOVES” reached this stage (there you mainly get home decoration and Interior), and there’s the “Super Store” since 2012 as well as the first shop “Sahnestück”, that has been founded in 2007.
Shopping paradise for all fashion victims
Apparently, the former model Terlutter captures the spirit of her predominantly young clientele precise, because her shops are successful – although they’re all in immediate vicinity to each other in Cologne’s trendy district.
On Instagram and Facebook Lena Terlutter posts diligently the latest trends and styles and daily presents herself with the latest must-haves.
Curious, I therefore walked into “Boutique Belgique”, a bright concept store with white wooden floor and tables from sale Euro-pallets on which not only fashion, but also home accessories, books and perfumes are presented.
Shopping victims will find trendy and inexpensive parts of labels like Lucy Paris, See u soon, Be Girl, Deby Debo, Vila Clothes. I fell in love with the sweet, floral Espandrilles of Maison Scotch. Now the summer can come. BvH
