All started in 1999 when we opened a small boutique up-town Brussels, Belgium, selling hard to find Brands. By 2002 the boutique was THE destination for Denim Heads. The boutique was offering Brands no one was offering at that time in Europe. We were the first one to offer in Europe Brands like Iron Heart, Toyo Enterprise (Sugar Cane), The Flat Head, Spellbound, Momotaro, Fullcount and many others….
In 2006, a website was launched to offer online all those Brands.
As one of our Founders had studied Art History and Interior Design during his studies, we added slowly Vintage Design finds to our selection.
The online shop selection became more eclectic with hard to find Slow Fashion products, a curated selection of Vintage Design and Supra-Quintessence own line.
Since its inception, Supra-Quintessence has grown in the last decade into a Store that aims to inspire through multiple channels; through our selection of clothing and accessories for timeless elegance, through the design vintage pieces that we travel the World to offer to you, and through the continued curation of its digital platform.
Be inspired by slow living in a fast world.
