A Hedonist’s guide to…

Amsterdam

Wolvenstraat
Vintage wares and a store with a Demin Bar so you can consider your choices over a thoughtful coffee are some of what you get on Wolvenstraat.
Utrechsestraat
Well known names like American Apparel compete with local stores like Leuk on Utrechsestraat.
Sukha Amsterdam
The chic, all-white warehouse space that is Sukha Amsterdam is stocked with a carefully curated selection of ethical, Dutch-made fashion and lifestyle pieces.
Spuistraat
Another fantastically named shop, United Nudes - which is actually a shoe shop - sits smugly on Spuistraat.
Smart Fetish & Fantasy
Smart Fetish and Fantasy is Agent Provocateur-meets-sadomasochist-bondage-shop.
Singel
Shop while walking alongside a beautiful canal and take the opportunity to pick up some fine Dutch cheese.
Runstraat
Where you will find the fabulously named Mensocks, where they sell socks...for men, amongst other high-end stores.
Rozengracht
Very easy to come out the other side of Rozengracht looking cool if you take the time to shop there.
Reestraat
Your typical paved Amsterdam street that makes for lovely pavement-pounding in the sunshine.
Prinsengracht
Amongst over high-profile stores, Prinsengracht is also where you will find the part-museum-part-boutique Denham the Jean Maker.
Nana
Follow the sound of buzzing down Warmoesstraat to find 'the most vibrating shop in town.'

A chance to see what some Dutch designers have to offer while enjoying the sights and smells of Amsterdam.
