TRIED & TESTED: STORM ANTWERP

February 6, 2011

Most striking feature:

It’s located underneath the MAS. A new museum which opens in May. The museum is about Antwerp and it’s port, but it’s nearby Felix Pakhuis so this area of Antwerp – called ‘t Eilandje – is getting hotter by the day. The interior is simple but fantastic. Green with wooden elements. You can go there for lunch, dinner of just some drinks. In summer they open a terrace.

NEWSFLASH: VALENTINO MUSEUM PARIS

April 21, 2010


He said goodbye to the catwalk, but fashion designer Valentino isn’t ready to only enjoy the sun and walk his cute little dogs. No, his new project is a museum. No need to search for property: his Château de Wideville will take care of it. Located just outside Paris. It is set to open in July – when the Fashion Circus will begin.

This information came from Chicsetera: a really cool Paris blog. Definitely worth to follow.
