Out of Time Ilse Cornelissens of Graanmarkt 13 picks three spring pieces that work year-round


The march of the seasons still dominates fashion, but Dutch-born retailer Ilse Cornelissens has eschewed that cycle with Graanmarkt 13, a shop and restaurant she launched in 2010 with her husband, Tim Van Geloven, in the Belgian city of Antwerp. After years of doing things the fashion way—selling clothes fast and seasonally, churning through stock—Graanmarkt 13 is taking a step back, rejecting the hunger for newness in favor of a slower, more relaxed and timeless approach to consumption. The aim is to make you feel at home in the converted townhouse—which shouldn’t be too hard, as the couple once lived in the €1,300-a-night apartment they now rent to visitors—and to do away with the snobbishness and formality that often ossifies upmarket shopping. The three items she chose to discuss with me are made by designers from across the world, but they all embody that desire for openness.—MAX FRASER

About Newsweek International

WHEN BILLIONAIRES ATTACK MR. Monopoly, that mustachioed fat cat, was about as close as most Americans got to a New York City billionaire until candidate Donald Trump started flying his jet to their villages last year. Now they are practically an everyday sight, because President Trump has coaxed a pack of them out of their penthouses and private jets to either join his Cabinet or sit on his councils and advisory boards. Trump voters know they’ve had a government for billionaires, that’s one reason they’re so mad, but to have one by billionaires means the Mighty Oz is now setting the nation’s agenda, and there is no curtain.
