Tell us a little bit more about yourself and your work!
My parents work in the same field as I do now, they are creatives too. I tried to do something different at first but the force was just too strong. I’ve always loved film, so being a videographer was just inevitable. Currently, I’m still at school, but I just started freelancing on the side, and here I am, working with Sidestep!
What attracts you to a good sneaker?
Like most people, I guess, it’s just my daily go-to. I’m not a massive collector, but I wouldn’t mind listening to someone passionately talking about their sneaker collection and all the details about it. A good sneaker is just effortless.
What are your must-visit shops in Antwerp?
I haven’t lived in Antwerp for that long, so I’d love to get more tips from other people, actually! I like the vintage selection at ROsier 41 and Labels Inc. I’m mostly an online shopper, though, for clothes. Another great store where they have so many fun things, from food to random cutlery items, is Sun Wah, in the Chinese street near Central Station.
What are your favorite restaurants and bars in Antwerp?
I love going to Marché Couverts in the Lange Koepoortstraat; they also do catering and take-out. It’s traditional French cuisine, which is so tasty. My favorite bars are Vitrin and Bar Vert, but I’m currently on the prowl for a new discovery.
Besides shops and restaurants, where else can we find you?
I’m at Middelheimpark pretty much every week. It’s just such a nice place. It soothes me. 10/10 would recommend!
