7 reasons to visit de Bijenkorf
We highlight the top seven reasons to take a shopping trip to Amsterdam’s prestigious department store de Bijenkorf. From the world’s best international designers to covetable souvenirs and new collaborations, de Bijenkorf is one of Amsterdam’s most stylish destinations
After shopping why not head to one of the luxurious treatment rooms? Located in the new beauty department, the rooms present an unrivalled range of treatments and skincare products, offering you an exceptional experience. Those looking for a skincare boost should book a tailor-made Clarins beauty treatment which includes skin analysis; it is a must for pre-party skin prep. Or opt for a Dermalogica MicroZone treatment, which is ideal for those looking for optimal results in a short time.
De Bijenkorf has recently remodelled its ground floor to striking new effect. The new space offers customers an elegant setting in which to shop the latest collections from some of the world’s most coveted brands. The white marble and the impressive window displays create a dramatically brighter and more luxurious shopping experience.
First for new collaborations and for artists
Always at the forefront of the latest trends and collaborations, de Bijenkorf is a must-visit for discerning travellers. From 10 September, the new Tommy Hilfiger x Gigi Hadid collection will be available in the store. Stock up on the nautical- and military-inspired collection, perfect for autumn/winter 16. The store is also a great place for artists; Room on the Roof has been created as a space where artists can work on projects which will be shared with public both in store and online.
Home to exclusive brands
De Bijenkorf has a long history as a hub of the best fashion talent, and a wide array of international designer brands can be found here. Since the remodelling of its ground floor the store now offers a considerably larger accessories department as well as exclusive brands such as Hermès, Céline and Gucci. From women’s and men’s ready-to-wear to the latest accessories, de Bijenkorf has it all.
Luxury beauty buys
De Bijenkorf has recently expanded its beauty hall and it now offers visitors a host of well-known beauty and skincare names. Among the recent additions is Charlotte Tilbury, the label of the eponymous go-to make-up artist for many celebrities. Create your favourite looks with the stunning art-deco inspired products, including the brand’s covetable eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks and new mascara.
De Bijenkorf is always looking for ways to appeal to visitors and to create the ultimate retail experience. Along with top designer brands and limited-edition products, de Bijenkorf hosts many impressive shopping events. The weekend of 10-11 September will be dedicated to special fashion events and festivities during which in-store drinks and personalised gifts will be available.
Innovative store windows
Those looking to go window shopping in Amsterdam should head to de Bijenkorf to take in the impressive window displays. To celebrate Prada’s new de Bijenkorf shop-in-shop, the Italian brand has designed two unique windows. A colourful tribute to Prada’s new collection, the window displays are a celebration of the brand’s bold and distinctive style. Other window highlights this season include a tribute to Louis Vuitton, which is opening a unique concept space in the store this September.
