Essentiel Antwerp opens store in Marbella
We are delighted to welcome Essentiel Antwerp to Marbella.
The official cocktail evening to celebrate the opening of their store in Puerto Banús is on 30 March from 20.00. The store is located in Muelle Ribera, Casa J Local 7 and will be instantly recognisable by the comfort and stylish design which all their stores follow and no doubt their professional customer service which they are renowned for.
The Essentiel success story – which is intertwined with other stories and chance events – is unique in Belgium. What started out as a basic T-shirt collection in 1999 grew into a colorful Ready-to-Wear collection for men and women. Esfan Eghtessadi, the son of Nicole Cadine (fashion designer), grew up in a world of textiles, sketches and fashion collections. On the evening he first met Inge Onsea, he immediately saw in her the incarnation of grace and femininity. This encounter evolved into a love story, a passion that led to a wedding, the birth of two children and… Essentiel.
In 1999 Esfan and Inge took their chance and launched a T-shirt collection. The range consisted of four models in twenty different colours, essential basic garments that are necessary in every wardrobe. The young couple’s apartment served as a showroom, and the T-shirts sold like hot cakes. After a year, the first store opened in Antwerp. Four seasons later, knitwear, jackets, dresses, shirts and trousers in trendy colors, new materials and an entire new range of accessories were added to the collection. Essentiel was born as a full-fledged Ready-to-Wear collection.
In 2004, Essentiel launched its first men’s collection. The existing stores are complemented with a Men’s Corner, while men only stores are opened in Antwerp, Knokke, Leuven and Hasselt. This development has also spread abroad, with new points of sales opening in France, the UK and Spain. Essentiel nowadays stands for refreshing, offbeat & luxurious fashion, renowned for its graphic or floral prints and trendy mixes of color. Both the men and women collections are rich, unique and accessible.
A wonderful addition to Marbella’s collection of brand stores.
