We all know Colette in Paris. But we are less familiar with the Outspoken Designer Store in the Dutch city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch (also known as Den Bosch). This store has the perfect combination of art, fashion and design. The store is based in the backspace from Galerie Majke Hüsstege.

The gallery is awarded for Dutch gallery of the year 2014, and has one of the finest contemporary art collection.

Outspoken is a mix of different styles, price categories and designers, but it all fits perfectly together. some of the artists and designers you could find at Outspoken are: Eric van Straaten, A.M. Westen, Robert van Embricqs, Amberebma, Individuals, Naked Design, Superology, First of August, Cor Unum, TEES and many more. Read more

I actually prefer these to the original model though the grey suede/sand colorway stands out as the one I’d wear from the bunch. Expect these to release later this summer so look out for updates here on their release. Read more

PATH is a label that is increasingly achieving interesting results, it’s worth keeping an eye on their take on masculinity. Read more
