| Housed in a former aristocratic palace that was later transformed into a 20th century bank, Verso opened in 1993 as a unique multi-brand store in the heart of Antwerp. Having maintained the interior’s high ceilings and industrial furniture of its past, Verso provides an innovative atmosphere for shopping both the Men’s and Women’s designer markets. An Italian-heavy selection of labels caters to the classic, yet on-trend customer looking for sophisticated clothing and accessories of the utmost quality. Service-oriented, Verso combines the intimacy of a boutique with the scale of a department store.
Lange Gasthuisstraat 9/11,
|The menswear section at Verso has something to suit every style and mood, with a selection of high-end suits from labels like Prada, Giorgio Armani, and Dior sharing the floor with edgy brands like Givenchy, John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. Graphic T-shirts and sculpted hoodies cater to a younger, more fashion forward customer, while a selection of sophisticated blazers in innovative materials suit an older, more elegant customer.|
|Verso is a paradise for women seeking feminine, sophisticated clothing. Slinky dresses and separates by D&G, Galliano, Versace, Roberto Cavalli and more contrast with more edgy, forward brands like Givenchy and Costume National. Paul & Joe, Blumarine, and See by Chloe provide a casual flavor while killer accessories from just about everybody who’s anybody ensure that the Verso woman is well put together.
|Verso carries an exhaustive selection of Women’s accessories, with shoes and bags from labels like Valentino, Roberto Cavalli, Tod’s and Bottega Veneta, among others. It also maintains the exclusive in Belgium for French label Roger Vivier. The Men’s section includes fashion forward sandals, sneakers, and dress shoes by the likes of Givenchy, Raf Simons, and Prada.|
|To counter its more formal offerings, Verso also carries an extensive selection of denim for both Men and Women, with 7 for all Mankind and D&G being the most popular brands. While more classic washes reflect the Verso customer’s tastes, leopard print and novelty denim reach the more adventurous client.|
