I find places like the home and studio/shop of Antwerp based fashion designer Jan-Jan van Essche so fascinating. Every inch of these spaces oozes of creativity, there are moodboards, fabric samples and collected treasures everywhere. While the colour palette here is mainly natural; ranging from white to brown, it’s not very strictly edited, making it obvious that this is in fact a collection of beloved items rather than a ”designed and decorated” show home. I feel like we are somehow allowed to see a little bit of how the designer’s mind works, what inspires them and their work.
