in Antwerp… continue >> 


It’s a very sunny winter day, I’m walking the streets of Antwerp, enjoying the beautiful
shadow of a tree on a big white wall, when I spot this lady.
I decide to run up to her and ask who she is.
Her name is Jeanette van Rossum, I find out she’s also Dutch, and has been living
in Antwerp for more than fifteen years now.



Jeanette: “I love living in Antwerp. Together with my partner I run
The Soul Antwerp, an (apartment) hotel in the South District at the Marnixplaats.
People stay over night with us but also just come round for a drink in our café or a visit to The Soul Hairspa
to get a luxurious hair treatment.

selling Chanel had run out of them.  And I couldn’t find them online either.
In the end I found these in a shop in Monaco.
It was worth all the effort, because I love wearing them!
