Hunting and Collecting

Bruxelles based concept store Hunting and Collecting was founded in February 2010 by fashion editor Aude Gribomont and event producer Niels Radtke. This combination in itself makes Hunting and Collecting an unique player in the market: a place where fashion, lifestyle and events come together in harmony.

‘Interacting art’ is what best describes newcomer t-shirt designers Julius and Angela Leijger from THIS IS LIGER. Inspired by a bold boy’s dream and born on an Italian holiday, this brand decided to create interactive designs by cooperating with illustrators, painters, character designers and all-round artists.

Damage Playground

The store is located in a modern waterside structure facing the city centre across the meuse river. It’s spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow in floods of daylight. The store interior is clean and basic but features a range of furnishings and props that are loosely inspired by an actual playground which allows different configurations. The focal point of the interior set-up is a collection of wooden mannequins.

After two crazy and completely sold-out editions, Now&Wow Fest is coming back for a third edition this December. Electronic music, pop, fashion and art are going to melt together during this partynight.
