Vous etes Ici Youasme

Vous etes Ici Youasme. According to Mimi Berlin’s December Calender we should have visited the youasme measyou Fancy Pop-Up Store at The Guesthouse of Gallery Vous Etes Ici in Amsterdam last week. We didn’t, we could’t make it last weekend, but yesterday we finally went.


Of course we’d already seen the Winter knitwear collection 2013 by Youasme but were surprised by new work! In honour of this Pop-Up store they made assemblies; new designs made with garments from previous collections: Pret-à-Portér recycled into Couture! Yes, these pieces are made by hand! We always have been a big fan of Youasme and these garments are, again, really to die for! (and, no, we are not biased) Since Gallery Vous etes Ici is an art gallery, we also saw “The Multiple Show #3”. Artworks in an edition of 5, by several artists. These works, friendly priced up to € 2.000,00, also helped to make our afternoon more than enjoyable. Please read the captions below the pictures for more detailed information about all the lovely work we got to see.

Gallery VOUS ETES ICI, Ms. van Riemsdijkweg 41A Amsterdam-Noord (Pontje to Buikslotermeer >1/2 minute walk) The Multiple Show #3 and the Pop-Up-Shop can be visited until December 22, 2013. Open: Wednesday – Sunday 12.00-18.00 hours and on request.
