DISTRICT: THE JORDAAN

This artsy area is brimming with avant-garde shops, street-side cafés, groovy galleries and low-key bars, all nestled on narrow, coble-stoned streets named after local flowers.


Sprmkt

This massive industrial space showcases a dizzying array of artifacts you’d expect to find on a film set. Formerly a supermarket, this super cool store is stocked with retro furniture, ‘60’s style spider lamps, antique mannequins, oval-shaped standing mirrors, couches and shag rugs. Since setting up shop in 2003, owner Nelleke Strykers has also branched out into clothing (Acne jeans are a best-seller), shoes (Chie Mihara is a fave), leather bags, art books, CD’s, vintage fabrics (for pillows, curtains and clothes), sunglasses and old stock designer jewelry. Due to popular demand, “Super Plus” – a new store within the store was set up, which carries pricier labels like the coveted Martin Margiela. The ongoing art and photography exhibitions are also a must.

Benelux Beckons: Hester Van Eeghen

Originally a luxe handbag line, this dynamic Dutch designer has since stepped things up (literally!) by branching out with a sister store that sells “solely” footwear. Known for geometric shapes and unexpected color combinations, scan shelves lined with edgy wedge booties, pointy-toed pumps and square toes with punchy leather palettes of orange, yellow, red and lime green (even the walls are matching). Best of all, everything’s handcrafted with Van Eeghen’s signature multi-colored silk lining and other surprising features. With kicks this cool, you won’t walk out empty handed.
