Full Description

Essentiel Antwerp celebrates its 25 years. Going off-piste since 1999, the label was founded as an antidote to the minimalistic and monochromatic fashion scene. With an extensive ready-to-wear, every collection articulates the brand’s unapologetic, down-to earth DNA. Expect an abundance of maximalist designs that merge unabashed femininity with comfort and wearability. Designed in Antwerp, Essentiel Antwerp is an ode to play. Life’s too short for minimalism. Vibrant colors, bold prints and unexpected juxtapositions that raise smiles, that’s the Essentiel Antwerp signature. This stunning volume contains an ornamental clothes peg, nestled within the pages of the book.

About the Author

The Antwerp-based brand is influenced by the numerous life experiences of its founders Esfan Eghtessadi and Inge Onsea.

Esfan, the son of Nicole Cadine, grew up in a world of textiles, sketches and fashion collections. Inge had a vintage loving mother, was a fashion model and spent five years in India, where she fell in love with colors, prints and unexpected combinations.

In 1999 Esfan and Inge took a chance and launched a T-shirt collection. Four styles, twenty different colors: their response to the monochrome fashion landscape. After a year, the first store opened in Antwerp. Four seasons later, knitwear, jackets, dresses, shirts, and trousers in trendy colors, new materials, and an entire range of accessories were added. Essentiel Antwerp grew into a global brand with a powerful message of love, fun, and colorful surprises. A universal message that translates anywhere and everywhere in the world.
