Tour de Wool Antwerp 2014 (Shopping in the city of Antwerp and online)

1. Morrison, Nationalestraat 20

We are an Antwerp based knitwear brand, since 1981 we have been producing quality knitwear in Scotland and in 2009 we launched our new label Howlin (Scottish slang for smelly). The way of manufacturing remains traditional but Howlin offers more room for fantasy in shape and pattern. At Howlin we strive for timeless, playful products that are made with care. So whether it is a scarf or a shaggy waistcoat; all our products are individually manufactured and hand finished by traditionally skilled craftsmen in either Scotland or Ireland using the highest quality wool yarns possible.

Come and have a look at the wool garments in our specially decorated window display.

For men and women…


3. Dorothee Schumacher, Nationalestraat 24

“Head, heart and dress. When they work together, a woman can shine from the inside,” Dorothee Schumacher says. Her name presents much more than a ready-to-wear collection, it represents uncompromising femininity and a very special spirit. In March 2014, Dorothee Schumacher opened her first store in Belgium’s avant-garde metropolis – next door to the Fashion Museum on the Nationalestraat.

Her fall/winter 2014 collection is an invitation for modern women to live with passion, without compromise. Extravagant, carefree and lavish. During Wool Week in Antwerp, we celebrate wool with a very special piece from our fall/winter collection where knitwear is featured in exciting textures.
