The reputation of this seaside town is well established: splendid cottages just a stone's throw from the beach, quaint intimate restaurants, and above all a wide range of fashion boutiques.Alongside the big names such as Bellerose, Mer du Nord, Bruphils and Donaldson you will also find a whole range of tempting boutiques to delight all fashion victims. The main avenues are great for a warm-up stroll before going in search of hidden treasures down the adjacent side streets.
Along Avenue Lippens (Lippenslaan) we recommend a stop at Jack Russell with its range of chic casual clothing for young and old (234-238 Lippenslaan). At Dodds, all modern men will find the latest trends from big designers, such as Dirck Bikkembergs, Donna Karan, Boss, D&G and Paul Smith (353, Lippenslaan).
Once you hit the sea front, you have to stop off at Dome CW, a concept store totally devoted to the women's range by Butch Tailors. You'll find basics here, but also vintage styling and a denim range to create informal, or highly feminine outfits. Just next door, the branch of the Courtrai store 't Herenhuis called Wall to wall appeals with its contemporary design pieces and brands such as Kartell, Molteni and Marimekko.
