Event: Opening Salima Thakker Store


Last year I was invited to the opening of the new store from Salima Thakker. 
She had a pop-up store in Knokke in the summer from last year and now she has moved to the center of Antwerp.
She has moved her store from Oever 28 to the Kloosterstraat in Antwerp. 
I was really suprised by this street, because I never went there before. I really liked the feeling there.
 Vintage furniture shops, cosy places to eat,... the Kloosterstraat has it all.

The house was build in the 19th century and was formely known as they say in Antwerp: a druppelkot. 
For the interior, the store was designed by B-bis architects. They already designed stores for icons like Walter Van Beirendonck, Veronique Branquinho en Annemie Verbeke. 
They designed a island cabinet where all the jewelry is exposed. The walls of the store were coated with copper plates with on it wooden slats. 
Some big mirrors make the interior complete.

The jewellery from Salima Thakker is known for here fine and delicate craftsmanship.
They're totally not for my budget, but they're also nice to see.
