During one of my very first visits to Antwerp, before I moved here, I was walking around the south and passed by the concept store Clinic. Of course I had to enter and I remember thinking that Antwerp was a city I wanted to be a part of. Still longing for the big city life I got to know in Copenhagen, cool concept stores were just not something that you would find in Leuven at the time. Walking around the store you could feel the creativity and the energy of the city. It sparked my nostalgic Copenhagen soul and got me all excited. Right then and there I knew that Antwerp would be my next hometown.
A few years later Clinic is still one of the hippest stores in town with brands such as Filippa K, Urbanears, Nudie Jeans and Philosphy (just to name a few favorites). Decorated with actual hospital tiles, vintage furniture and apothacary cabinets, you know where they got the name. This sunday Clinic would love to invite you all to join them on the ultimate urban picnic, Clinic Picnic. Transforming the street with real grass, picnic tables, blankets and picnic baskets, you’ll feel like summer is still on. Expect some relaxing beats, great clothing, a fashion show, life performances and excellent cocktails.
When? This sunday, the 7th of September, all day long.
Where? Just in front of the store, the street will be car-free. De Burburestraat 5 in Antwerpen
