This Thursday I was invited to the launch of the new concept store LOFT in Ghent. Since I am one of those people doomed to wear glasses (or lenses) I was immediately interested in this gathering. It was the perfect excuse for a night out with my boyfriend in Ghent and the opening was a lot of fun. And oh yes, no need to mention the (sun)glasses were to die for!
From the moment I stepped in the LOFT store I fell in love. Not only with the beautiful interior (a lot of white & natural wood) but also with the wonderful collection. And to top this all off, they had cocktails! Since my blog is called Cocktails&Heels you can imagine I tried two of them ;-). The first one was with lime, vodka and zespri kiwi and was de-li-cious. The second one I tried was quite special, a gin tonic with cucumber and basil but the combination was great!
Apart from these delicious cocktails they also served us some yummy bites. Since we had just eaten at Balls & Glory (mmm!) we weren’t that hungry but we tried some small dishes and they were in perfect line with the cocktails.
Of course, eating and drinking wasn’t the main focus of the evening (although I am quite sure I have a talent for both 😉 ). We were there to discover this new eyewear shop in the centre of Gent. LOFT is a store that is really focused on giving the client the tailor-made service they deserve. Come in, show them who you are and they’ll find the perfect glasses for you.
LOFT has five brands from all over the world: Anne et Valentin, Oscar Magnuson, Yellows Plus, Mykita and the exclusive Japanese Eyevan 7285. All these brands really focus on the fashion aspect and this is also LOFT’s philosophy. LOFT wants to offer unique and fashionable pieces. Although the glasses are quite expensive (the prices start from €250), the designs are really worth it!
Want to discover this beautiful shop with your own eyes? And maybe step out with some new glasses to see the beauty in the world even sharper? You can find LOFT in Henegouwenstraat 89, 9000 Ghent or check their website: www.loftoptiek.com
