Thiron - Shoe Store In Antwerp
Before stepping into Elsa with my voucher I visited Thiron, a lovely shoe store that opened in Antwerp last February. I got the chance to meet Guy Thiron, the owner, who told what led him to open a multi-labels shoe store. If there's one thing I can understand is the passion for shoes! Whatever you did before you finally end up in the shoe business.
Guy Thiron graduated as an industrial designer. He earned his stripes in the interior industry managing the development of store concepts which actually can be seen in his boutique. But his passion for shoes drove him to study the art of shoe making in order to get back to the core of product development. After managing a diverse portfolio of brands for Studio Due, the obvious step was the opening of his own shop with an interesting range of European and Japanese labels.
Just check the list:
Michel Vivien, Céline, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Vic Matié, Chie Mihara, Pura Lopez, Duccio Del Lucca, Buttero, Fausto Santini, Juan Antonio Lopez, megumi ochi, La Suite, Francesco Morichetti, Il Bisonte, Jérome Dreyfuss, Mulberry... so put the address on your list for your next Antwerp trip!
