New Brand Alert – Essentiel Antwerp
The Essentiel Antwerp success story is unique in Belgium. The Antwerp-based brand is influenced by the numerous life experiences of its founders Esfan Eghtessadi and Inge Onsea. Inge had a vintage loving mother, was a fashion model and spent five years in India, where she fell in love with colours, prints, and unexpected combinations.
In 1999 Esfan and Inge took a chance and launched a T-shirt collection. Four styles, twenty different colours: 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 colours, new materials, and an entire range of accessories were added. Essentiel Antwerp stands for refreshing, offbeat & luxurious fashion, renowned for its graphic or floral prints and trendy mixes of colour.
As a brand Essentiel Antwerp shares a powerful message of love of fashion, fun, and colourful surprises.
