Wake Up! is my favourite shop in Brussels. Packed with technicolor goodies, Afro/urban mash ups, funky designs by Nuo herself (Wake Up!'s owner, Noemie is also a designer), beautiful notebooks, cute jewelry and generally creative clothes I always find something I like. It is also a hub for Cut Up Collectif, a trio of two stylists and one make-up artist, who are always up to something cool whether it's creating album covers, parties or fashion shows. It is a vibrant splash of colour in this nice, grey city — a little sartorial oasis. Drop by and check it out!
