Don’t know if you remember, but a while back, we had our Q&A with Julie Marynen, one half of Step by Step‘s duo. That amazing store in Antwerp, yes.

If you can’t recall, just check it out right here.
So of course, we all want to know about ‘the other one’ as well.

I like to call her the crème de la crème from Antwerp.
I don’t even know where to start when I want to explain who Chantal Rochez is.
The woman has taste.
That’s it.
No more words needed.

I know what you’re thinking now: “Oh yes it’s easy to dress this good, when you own a clothing store.”
No it’s not.

The skills she has are everywhere and all around.
It’s everything: The way the shop looks, the clothes, the brands, the combinations, the windows, ... Of course, all of this is the result of the perfect match Julie and Chantal make together. Even Chantal and Rik’s house was featured a while back, in an interior magazine.

Impeccable style, never too perfect, always admirable ...
