Those who miss the heydays of TV shows such as Miami Vice and Magnum should definitely drop by Tangerine Sunshine in trendy neighborhood Berchem. The idea behind the clothing collection of the same name signed by Katrien, the owner of the store, is simple. Think sunset, a cool beach party, pumping music and a time machine that would take you back to the ’80s. What are we wearing?
The collection includes a number of limited-edition T-shirts and sweaters for both men and women where fun, minimalism and a big nod to the ’80s are the keywords. All screen-printed prints are also drawn by hand.
Over the years Tangerine Sunshine has transformed from a label into a multi-brand concept store where I often come to check out a fine selection of Belgian brands. She sells jewelry from Antwerp-based NimZu, super detailed ceramics from Shu & Mi and tote bags from Jozien Kennes. The range changes every few months, so I always keep an eye on their Facebook page!
What’s on my wish list next? I’m thinking of getting myself a pair of 3D printed earrings made of biodegradable plastic in many designs, handmade by Rani & Dries from Diest. How good does that sound?
