Smaak is a little shop on the Leliegracht just around the corner from where I work. ‘Smaak’ means ‘taste’ in English and it’s owner, André, surely has got fantastic taste when it comes to great fashion and design. The store has selection of clothes, handbags, gloves, jewellery, sunglasses and other accessory must-haves plus some smaller house and design items. And the best news is it’s not going to cost you a mint. There’s a great range, something for every price range. I dare you to go there and NOT walk away with something. Love the jewels...
I walked in looking for a birthday present for a friend, and walked out with a dress (left hand side) by Imitz of Denmark, €139. But WHAT a dress. A little quirky and a little retro, I love the high-waist and sexy straps. Just need a cute white shirt to go with it now...Affordable up-to-the-minute trends. Great for last minute presents or, er, a lunchtime splurge.
Leliegracht 16 (between Herengracht and Keizersgracht).
