For all others there is Bob Verschueren's quite original exhibition of vegetal artworks in the Botanique or the so-called Micromarché, an indoor art and fashion market showcasing Belgium's young talents.
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps
You know what they say: a good defence is a strong offence. Don't wait for the winter to take its toll on your skin, and pre-empt the cracks with Kiehl's Creme de Corps, a face-saving, all-encompassing body cream that'll act as damage control to the winter months' wrath.
Spicing it up: Saveurs et Savoirs
For the last instalment in our four-part series of inspiring retail start-ups, we spice things up a little with Saveurs et Savoirs, a temple to the senses set to open in Brussels this December.
YMC sweater for girls
Nothing says cuddle up and snuggle like a heavy-knit sweater, and this YMC crew neck has got the entire office dishing out group hugs as defensive measures against the week's depressing weather.
Ménage à deux: When fashion, art and lifestyle collide
In the third instalment of our series on new retail innovations, we meet DJ duo Ménage à deux a couple of days prior to the opening of their concept store of the same name, a fashion, design and culture emporium nestled in the heart of Brussels.
Fifteen questions to: Eric Beauduin
Fashion designer Eric Beauduin's leather good creations have taken the fashion world by storm, resulting in prestigious retails imprints such as L'Ėclaireur in Paris and Halelujah in Brussels carrying his line. In a new, weekly series of rapid fire questions to the fashion folk, we quiz the Brussels-based bagman on everything from the meaning of luxury to the importance of retaining his independence.
Nike Sky Force ’88
The re-edition of Nike's Sky Force '88 has got the whole office reminiscing about the days when we spent more time on the basketball court than at the local. A time when scoring a three-pointer didn't yet have a double entendre.
Miam Miam Bio: Organic food Grandma-style
In part two of our ongoing series on dynamic, local retail start-ups that enliven your neighbourhood's retail landscape, we meet the owner of Miam Miam Bio, an innovative organic concept that puts Grandma-style cooking at the centre of its philosophy and offering.

Meeting Dries Van Noten (or the day my heart stopped beating)
We meet Belgian fashion designer Dries Van Noten to discuss distance, independence and advertising (or lack of).
Style spotters: Manu
For the fourth and last in our series of visual chapters on individualism and style, we hand the camera over to Manu from Mapp Store – one of those people who always has something good to say. He might have just given a new album a listen, and thinks you should too (we recently discovered Holidays […]
A few words about our iPad app
Our iPad app having hit Apple’s AppStore last week, we thought it useful to give you a little background information on it. You know, the why, who, what, when and all. We first started toying with the idea of developing an iPad app towards the end of the summer 2010. Apple had just released its […]
7d Bermuda shorts
Sunscreen, shades, a good book and a killer iPod playlist might be the essential components to a perfect holiday although one shouldn’t underestimate the life-changing capacity of certain often overlooked items like, say, a pair of Bermuda shorts. Starting today, each week will see its new suggestion, a little something that somehow caught our attention […]
Those everyday little things
What better way to tackle our pick of items that tickle our fancy this month than by pigeonholing them into categories? Not just any categories. Categories we entertain somewhat of a love and hate relationship with. Love because they inspire our everyday. Hate because they make our everyday budgets smaller by the day. Photographer Melika […]
Let there be light
With our wardrobe summer lift nearly complete, there still are a couple of things we need to bag before setting sail for the month. Need a watch, a pair of sunglasses, shoes, a perfume, a pair of Chinos and sandals. Easy. Writers Nicholas Lewis, Philippe Pourhashemi and Randa Wazen 01. Scent of a summer We […]
That’s yellow spelt L-O-W
Gucci, Chanel or Mercedes will never push money-off coupons through your letterbox. Just like they will never use yellow in their corporate colour portfolio. Yellow is used in marketing to mean cut-price bargains for the proletariat, and the last thing a luxury brand wants is for customers to think that their products are made “for […]
The yellow board
You might have noticed that we’ve taken to immortalising some of the things that inspire us whilst working on any given issue. Some are obvious hits, whilst others deserve an explanation. We call these pages our boards. The black album had its blackboard. The red album had its red board (although readers with an eye […]
When old meets new: J.M. Weston invites Kitsuné
Collaborations are a hard thing to pull-off in the finicky and fickle world of fashion. Egos tend to get in the way, brand values get muddled and no one really is fooled. Yes, ok, we’ll buy into the ‘meeting of minds’ thing, but that’s about as far as it goes. Don’t expect us to believe […]
Fashion: The wish list
From underwear to accessories, our selection of fashion showstoppers are as timeless as they are light-hearted. Photographer Ismaël Moumin 01. Penny for your style Belgian-born Diane von Fürstenberg knows women. Her upbeat energy, passion for life and positive attitude shape her work. She likes to empower her customers and caters to her desires and aspirations. […]
Fashion: Shoe shining
Footwear fetishists are one step closer to shoe bliss thanks to Walk The Line, a brand new boutique opened by Audrey Jaeger little over a month ago, near the posh Place Georges Brugmannplein. After working in boutiques such as Paule Ka and Chanel, she found the incentive to set up her own place following an […]
Faguo – world dominance one tree at a time
There’s something rather heart-warming about seeing a start-up coming-of-age, especially in the fast-paced and unforgiving world of fashion. If you’re anything like us and keep a close watch on the daily going-ons of the industry, you’ll agree that certain new arrivals somehow seem more astute than others at remaining at the top of the hype […]
Red hot like a chili pepper
We’re raising the stakes and turning the temperature up this month with our pick of red marvels – everything from a life-changing camera to a revolutionary little notebook. Photographer Benoît Banisse Art direction and styling Flore van Ryn 01. Just click it We’ve become experts at commissioning photography, art directing as well as styling it, […]
Amsterdam Fashion Week: the report
What is Dutch fashion? I guess it’s fair to say that an instant answer does not come to mind. Unlike Italy, France or the UK, Holland does not seem to have a fashion tradition as such, even though the Dutch appreciate craft and originality. It often seems that art and design are more valued within […]
2011, année érotique
Année Erotique. What might sound like a brand of kinky lingerie is actually the new range of high-end womenswear that will be launched this summer by Kaat Bloomaert, of Le Fabuleux Marcel de Bruxelles fame. This very feminine line only features five designs per season – all exclusively dresses. “I think there’s definitely a trend […]
Converse and Marimekko celebrate their collaboration with a movie
To celebrate its collaboration with Finnish textile icon Marimekko, Converse has commissioned a short movie shot in Helsinki. Introducing some of the print designers entrusted with the task of bringing the Marimekko aesthetic to Converse’s classic shoe, the film sheds light on the slightly women’s focused collection – a pair of which will be featured […]
Working exclusively with French tanneries and the best skins available, Noir Basic‘s exquisite outerwear pieces reconcile craftsmanship with the world of streetwear. Writer Philippe Pourhashemi Inspired by American culture and the refinement of Parisian ateliers, Anthony Lellouche, Romain Bernardini and Marc Leblond set up the brand in 2008, appealing to leather aficionados around the globe […]
The black market
For a “non-colour,” black has surely seeped its way into every aspect of our lives, from fashion and food to beauty and bathrooms. Photography Benoît Banisse Art direction and styling facetofacedesign 01. Royal rolls Toilet paper doesn’t usually get us talking, but that all changed on a recent night out. After having downed one long […]
The black books
Turn the lights off, and this month’s pick of books suddenly looks more menacing than their authors had intended them to be. You won’t hear us complaining though, as it probably means we’ll get to hold on to them a little longer… Photography Yassin Serghini Drawings – Work comes out of work (2008) by Richard […]
Noir: entertaining a dark passion for sustainable fashion
Sustainable designer lines might flourish all over the fashion sphere, yet it would seem that only a few brands can be credited for making it happen. Noir, a Copenhagen-based fashion group, was smart enough to get rid of all the hippie dippie connotations the fad carries by injecting some major sex appeal into sustainability. Writer […]
The winners of our Swatch New Gent contest
Following an overwhelming response to our Swatch contest, we needed a little more time than expected to sift through your recollections and, ultimately, decide upon three winners. The jury has now spoken and, with somewhat of a preference for contestants who went that extra mile, here are the contest’s three winners, complete with their submissions: […]
Goods from the Gulag
Just when we thought we finally had found an excuse to call in caviar by the kilos and crates-full of vodka to brighten up our days, we settled for nostalgia over flamboyance. Frugal meals and geeky memories prevailed, which didn’t stop us from messing about with KGB worthy spy gear or Tsar-like ornaments. Photography Benoit […]
Win a watch from Swatch’s New Gent collection
Many objects come with the added bonus of announcing a certain coming-of-age. A maturity. A willigness to take a step up and, well, grow up. In the same way as you now start looking at blazer coats in a different light (“they’re ok when worn on top of a pair of jeans” you might even […]
If you don’t read books, you will soon forget how to read
When anything and everything remotely linked to culture better happen behind closed doors, you better hope your library is stocked with the right balance of books. This, we imagine, is what a book shelf would have looked liked in St Petersburg circa 1984. Photography Yassin Serghini Verses and Versions; Three Centuries of Russian Poetry (2008) […]
Tell your people to call my people and we’ll do lunch…
Midday is crunch time at Word HQ, which means we’ve built up a considerable knowledge bank of places we can call upon for an immediate fix of culinary double-deckers. Spanning our customary urban triangle of Antwerp, Ghent and Brussels, these are the places you’ll find us queuing up round about 12h10. Photography Veerle Frissen Brussels […]
So Fresh, So Cool
Following in the footsteps of its sister shop, Fresh Kicks, is a new sneaker store from Brussel’s Youssef Hebidel, catering cool for the city’s urbanites. Having started a graf shop back in the late 90s, Youssef established himself as somewhat of a doyen of street culture in Brussels. Tapping into the extant need for a […]
FAntastic and FAbulous: the opening of FA Gallery
The project was an ambitious one right from the word go. The idea, although simple, was massive in its scope: to reinvigorate a dire and rather stale local fashion and art landscape (in this case, that of Kuwait), and infuse it with much-needed pep. Whilst style staples such as Villa Moda had dominated the local […]
The Special Showstoppers: The Goods
We touch upon all aspects of design – from creation through to completion and reparation – in this month’s selection of special show stealers. We’ve got the software to prototype it, the loungechair to ponder it, the stool to rock it out, the plasticine to fix it, the mirror to have a final look at […]
Some like it rough
Unpolished, stiff, battered and worn-out, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this month’s showstopper selection was handpicked by a bunch of brutes. A far cry from the smooth and flashy must-haves spread all over the glossies’ gargantuan September issues, we lay our latest cravings bare and rough. Photography Benoît Banisse, art direction and styling facetofacedesign 1. […]
Oooh Wordiors, come out and play…
The indefatigable and near indestructible KKGB gang produced one of the most ambitious fashions series to have graced the magazine pages for our Rough Edges Issue. Indeed, each day of shoot was a cacophony of surreal situations, future-funky hairdos and menacing weapons. Before we show you the series in its entirety as well as a […]
The Word x Jack Purcell
You might have noticed that we’ve recently taken a liking to sneaker brand Jack Purcell (Check our Rough Edges Issue for more). Having out-worn, out-grown and near out-dated our Converses, we thought it was about time to turn things up a notch and upgrade. In steps often heard-about but seldom seen Jack Purcell sneakers. The […]
Giving the people what they want
Citroen’s new DS3 has been on my mind ever since I took it for a test drive over three weeks ago. At first sight, you’d be forgiven for thinking they got it totally wrong. It’s much more muscular, intimidating even, than the original model (which we paid respect to in our Rough Edges Issue). It […]
The Word x De Nieuwe Brasserie
Recent downtown descends have seen our usual paths veer somewhat off track, our urban instincts for discovery somehow enticed by murmurs of renovation and rumours of regeneration. Steering away from the usual Chartreux-Dansaert-St Catherine triangular hotspot of hipness, our latest wanderings have brought us to place du Samedi/Zaterdagplein, located just behind place St Catherine/Sint-Katelijneplaats. A […]
The Shelf: rough, rugged and raw reads
These are some of the novels and photo-books we had lying about the pool house over the summer. Some were good reads, some were immersing reads, whilst others just made us reach for the ever growing pile of trash-mags, the result of 10 days of poolside dilly dallying. Slaughter on a snowy morn by Colin Evans, […]
Profiling Rough Trade had been on our wish list for quite a while. Call us uninspired or lazy, but doing it for our Rough Edges Issue felt like an obvious no-brainer, or just an excuse to day trip our way over to London. We hopped on the 8.05 Eurostar and started with the label’s headquarter, […]
Inside the Glorybox
Newly opened and already making its presence felt on the fashion thoroughfare of Dansaert, Glorybox is a bastion of Belgian and French design. Stocking new designers solely from Belgium and France is a primary and appealing feature of the boutique, distinguishing it from other shops in the area. Another somewhat atypical quality is the friendly, […]
The best for food in Brussels
After sharing our favourite places to have a drink we share our adressess for the best food in Brussels and morem, from Delecta to Yamoto.
Brussels: where we shop
Sales have kicked off – which means we can finally indulge in some of our favourite brands without fear of ending up blacklisted by all the country’s banks. Scroll down for a selection of boutiques and stores that have become inevitable stops in our retail therapy marathon route. Mapp Store (Men and Women) © Mapp […]
Brussels: where we drink
Together with the start of the summer comes the cringe-inducing ‘city guides’ we’ve all grown accustomed to, from American broasheets’ “36 hours in…” roundups to glossy magazines’ “10 things to do in…” selections. Directories of the usual suspects, these guides hit all the right (touristy) chordes, without ever delving deep into the city DNA. And […]
Lynch: Saying it without words
David Lynch’s career has spanned over 40 years, directing critically acclaimed films like Elephant Man (1980), Blue Velvet (1986) and Mulholland Drive (2001). What is less known is his parallel and extensive oeuvre of surrealist artwork. The Max Ernst Museum in Germany held a major exhibition this past winter, presenting more than 150 pieces by […]
DJ Kicks given the Kode 9 treatement
There was never any question that Kode 9’s DJ Kicks mix would be an interesting, time-travelling foray into bass music. The London-based producer, DJ, label boss and author – the closest the UK’s dubstep scene has to a spiritual godfather – has relentlessly been crafting a unique musical identity that has won him the respect […]
Faith No More
The Dance is house music legends Faithless’s first album in 4 years. Their last album, 2006’s To All New Arrivals, was a polemic loaded record that boasted the group’s socio-political awareness. It seems with The Dance Faithless have decided to re-engage with their prior material, with tracks like ‘Not Going Home’ which attempt to recapture […]
We made your world
Many of the objects that we overlook or take for granted have had an extraordinary role to play in human history. From concrete to the cathode ray tube: yesterday’s breakthrough discovery often becomes tomorrow’s trash. Photography Guy Van Laere Additional research Hettie Judah “For over one billion people in the developing world, glasses are a […]
Life at the cutting edge can get pretty exhausting – kept awake at night by genius ideas, burning through the shoe leather as you sprint your way too and from the patent office, wrestling frustration as things fail to fall into place just so – we thought we’d help out with a little selection of […]
Oh Oh Emmanuelle
Giving into a little teenage nostalgia, we profiled cult figure of night time television Emmanuelle for our Skin edition. Here, you’ll find a selection of some of our favourite Emmanuelle moments, as balmy as they are classic. The original article we published can be found at the end of the post.
