A Visit To Anna Heylen

A little come back in Antwerp to mention the Maison Anna Heylen and our meeting with Anna, a former graduate from the Fashion Department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, who opened her Maison in 2008 in a beautiful building of the Lombardenstraat.

We did so many things during that day that I wasn't in a mood of taking a lot of photos and prefered enjoying the atmosphere of the house and little detaisl like this doll. In 1993, Anna created for Antwerp Capital of Europe's event a collection of dolls that you can also admire on the first level of the house.

As I said, not a lot of snapshots of the clothes, so I guess you have to go there to see a singular mix of technical perfection and crazyness as Anna defines her style (or you can take a look at some reviews of the other bloggers on the Facebook Page). As for me I will come back because there's is an handmade knit black sweater with the kind of transparency I love that is waiting for me!

A bicycle so typical of Antwerp as the design of Anna's trademark, a red hand, which is (the hand) as I learned later the symbol of the city.
