De Lange Koepoortstraat is one of the streets in the old part of Antwerp that is currently undergoing sort of an urban face-lift. Several fashionable outfitters have set up shop there and this is one of them. The interior design of Paleis is sumptuous to say the least and the staff treat you as they would in an up-market brand store: attentive yet giving you room to breathe and browse. And there's plently of that to be done. Funky sunglasses, cool t-shirts or a really awesome pair of jeans - this shop has it all, featuring brands such as Vila, Pieces, Madonna, Jack & Jones and Only. The store may look posh and the staff may be suspiciously considerate, but their stock -which is being updated weekly- is moderately priced. By the way, every drape that puts the privacy into 'changing room' has been designed by a different artist.
