"le petit supplément d'âme ..."

This week we had the pleasure to read Manon Libert's article about Gabriele Vintage. What a revelation! Finally someone manages to transcribe with maestria the unusual chemistry that surrounds the boutique. I let you discover what it is by yourself here.
But as a clue, i'll say that you can't bring such a smooth result as Gabriele does without any hard work. Behind every piece of clothes you have hours of patience, know-how and care for a job well done. Don't forget !

P.S: And don't forget either to come to our little VIP gig given by the Laptop Cats this afternoon!!

Interlude Musical

Just to let you know that Gabriele will host the Laptop Cats again this afternoon at 6pm, rue des Chartreux. For those who missed it at Christmas, it's now or never!

And by the way it's sales time!

the morning after

So as you know we had a little thing going on the 17th of March. And as I know you are dying to see the photos we made of the event and to read the official report (for the little minority that couldn't make it).

First let me tell you it's really impressive. Can you imagine? 300 people all in vintage? Like if you were stuck in the middle of a time travel. You have to experience this one day. I know some people have a "to do list before I die", put it on the list you wont regret. Fact is, as we were the last ones to pass, we had plenty of time to observe what was going on. Basically you had three main attractions: the make up artists, the photoshoot and the actual show on the stage. So you would have your face made up by professionals (all dressed in a blue stewardess suit in the 50's style to stick to the theme by the way), then run to the photo set where a piano gently stood for your one and only pleasure. But don't be afraid, we made sure he was treated with respect. He's ok. Meanwhile a dance class was given by our two astonishing moderators to make sure you know how to groove when Slick Nick & The Casino Special hit the spot.
 And of course, the best for the end, our "défilé". The ones who were there had the pleasure to have a quick and full overview of the main fashion currents of the past century, with accessories, hair style and clothing. No need to say you can find all the apparel and more at the boutique Gabriele Vintage.

Well, on these wise words I wish you a wonderful week end and wish to see you at the boutique.

ready steady go go go

   You are probably wondering why Gabriele Vintage's staff has all of a sudden turn into vintage fashion icons, aren't you ? Let me tell you the truth, the truth about life in general, by quoting a woman that has always been a great source of inspiration to me, namely Pocahontas: "we are all connected to each other, In a circle, in a hoop that never ends". The main information to pic here is "it's all connected". The initial question being "why are they all dressed up for a photoshooting?" and my clue being "it's all connected", if you do the mix on your own and look right at the next post you will find ... THE DEFILÉ FOR RADIO MODERN! yes !
  We are so caring that we made you a foretaste of what you will see at the party, and as you can see from the result, it was pretty funny to fool around in vintage clothing. Ans since everything is connected, there's no reason it shouldn't be as funny at the party on the 17th.

Hi there,

Hope your first impressions of this new year were as good as ours, because we noticed that we got a lot of compliments lately. First Gabriele was sacred "Mother of all Vintage Shops" and a few days later the boutique is compared to the costume department of a movie set. Well, well, we might be on the right path to become true legends of the Brusseler Vintage scene hum hum, aren't we? But only with your help, so if you see or write more lovely articles, let us know (and don't be shy, rememeber you're making history ;)) !
