These are the coolest Concept Stores in Amsterdam

Fashion and apparel concept stores are popping up all over the world, so is Amsterdam. A great experience where you find a combination of fashion, food, furniture, books, art, all-in one! It involves more than just shopping, inspiring places where you can wander around and discover new and secondhand stuff where it’s hard to leave empty handed.

Find out where to look for the coolest Dutch concept stores in Amsterdam:

 1. T.I.T.S
A cute little store in West where you will find a selected mix of funky new brands.
T.I.T.S stands for ‘This Is The Shit’, and they live up to the name! Most of the brands in store are yet unknown and these are all very special pieces for affordable prices. I bought an amazing hat of Brixton for only 60 euros.
They also have a little coffee corner in the back where they serve excellent coffees and when it’s sunny you can drink your coffee in their beautiful garden.

2. Hutspot
Four young owners started Hutspot in Amsterdam to provide a platform for creativity that enables ideas, products and people to become easily accessible. You can shop for clothing, accessories, art, housewares, plants and furniture at Hustspot. They started a second shop after their first great success – Van Woustraat and Rozengracht.
More important to mention is that you will find unique brands that use sustainable materials and secure the rights of marginalized producers and workers. There’s a cafe where you can read magazines, drink a very nice cup of coffee and have some healthy salads and sandwiches or meet up with friends. Also the ultimate place to work from.

4. Cottoncake
I already highlighted this amazing concept store in a previous blogpost and I will do it again since it’s worth sharing again. I fell in love immediately, what about you? This is probably my favorite lunch spot in Amsterdam. Their food is incredible healthy and so tasty. They switch their menu once a while so you will never get bored. A few of my favorites:
1. Roasted Pumpkin sandwich with fresh rosemary, goat cheese, toasted on organic spelt bread
2. Quinoa salad with avocado, almonds, goat & sheep feta cheese, apricots, fresh mint and lemon.
Next that food you will find lovely handmade jewelries of Mimi et Toi & Monocraft, organic creams of La Bruket, lovely basic shirts of Samsøe & Samsøe and beautiful knits of Sita Murt.

5. Koko Coffee & Design
They already exist for about 3 years but we literally just discovered this cute concept store on the Oudezijdse Voorburgwal.
They sell coffee, muffins, beautiful clothing and accessories. The brand they sell are Stutterheim Raincoats, Crispy Sheets pencil cards, Wood Wood and Libertine Libertine. They’ve kept the brick walls which gives this place an amazing vibe.

6. Doordeweeks
We received an email of the one of the owners who was a little disappointing not to see Doordeweeks in our list. And she was absolutely right! This store is so cool!
Founded by two creative girls, Suzy Beemsterboer and Jildou Fleur, Doordeweeks gives new twist to the concept of concept stores by providing a make-up bar and an experience during your visit to the store. They serve coffee from White Label and they sell edgy clothes, accessories, furniture and art.

8. ANNA & NINA
This is one of our favorite stores when looking for a fantastic original gift. What many people probably don’t know is that Anna en Nina founded their namesake agency in 2012, back then they were only specialized in jewelry and accessories. After that Anna and Nina opened their first store in Amsterdam in 2013 with a second following in the same city in June 2014, where they sell a variety of super cool brands. They sell funny and super nice jewelries, accessories, gifts and interior items.
