You’ll probably notice that since the beginning of this year, I haven’t really been around… March and its upheaval didn’t helped. And lately, the Brussels chaos either. But hey! Spring is almost here! And it gives me enough energy to pay tribute to some magical places that still let the heart of Brussels beat.
Bonnie & Jane is one of those places you love to find that is one of a kind. The shop exists since 5 years now (!!) and this reminds me Laurie talking about this project with sparkles in the eyes. Laurie and Anne met at work, when they were working for a famous fashion retailer, fifteen years ago.
They quickly decides to associate their world around the same idea: creating a cozy place with inspiring things where people would feel like home. The first drafts are born on the corner of used Brussels bar and 1 year later the dreams came true! You’ll love to walk around in this timeless world between boho and industrial style with here and there some touches of copper and glitter, surrounded by vintage furniture’s that you can buy as well! And of course, some Gainsbourg references, that you’ll appreciate if you are a fan.
Beside, why the name “Bonnie and Jane” ?
“We wanted a place that’s looks like us. We are both fans of Gainsbourg that we listened a lot during the project preparations. So why not Bonnie (& Clyde) and Jane (Birkin)! The first one for its bad girl side and the second one for its opposite side, more sentimental… Don’t we all have a Bonnie and a Jane side? And it reflected quite well the shop world”
Do not hesitate to cross the door, you’ll find some creators treasuries for all around the world like Paris, Sweden or San Francisco. Me, of course, I had a crush on the “Cow Girl” like boots and the refined jewels that takes places next to glitter tunics and other little furniture’s.
You’ll find some brands that they are working with from scratch: Mes Demoiselles Paris (Clothes), Louise Hendricks (Jewels / France) and Matières à Réflexion (purses)…. new in in fashion, Rabens Saloner (Sweden), Masscob (Spain) Momoni (Italy) and Polder (France), Jewels new in : Soko ( San Francisco / handmade in Kenya), and interiors furnitures: Doing goods (Holland)
