Every month we talk to people from Essentiel and talk about their work, style crushes, travel, personal quirks and anything in between. This month we talked to our Knitwear and Jersey Assistant, Emmeline Galtier.

 

WHAT IS YOUR OCCUPATION AT ESSENTIEL ANTWERP AND HOW DID YOU END UP HERE?

I am knitwear and jersey assistant. I studied fashion design in France and I did an internship at Essentiel Antwerp back then. I loved it. When I finished my studies I wanted to settle in Belgium and found my way back to Essentiel Antwerp :-).

WHAT DO YOU MOST LIKE AND DISLIKE ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I like the excitement of launching and trying new things. At the styling department we are always ahead of collections, but sometimes I am too eager to see the new collection and it's hard to wait for the final result.

EXPLAIN YOUR STYLE?

My motto is "If it's comfy, it's lovely". No seriously, I love to wear everything as long as it's not too serious. I don't limit myself to a specific style. But the consistent items in my outfits are sneakers, I love to collect and wear them.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ESSENTIEL ANTWERP ITEM FROM FW17 AND WHY?

I love the coats of the basic winter, the OMONADE and the ONIDAD. But I have to admit, my preference goes to the sweater OFFROAD.

CAN YOU GIVE US AN INSIDER FASHION TIP?

I just don't think you should limit yourself: explore everything, if you want to wear it you can. There is no such thing as an ugly item, it depends on how you wear it!

WHAT ARE YOU INTO LATELY?

Lately I am really into knitting. It's really practical for the commute between Brussels and Antwerp. But when I'm home, I love playing RIME. It's a video game with a very beautiful and poetic world.

BEST PLACE TO HAVE LUNCH IN BRUSSELS?

I often have lunch in the Marolles during the weekends, there is a really cute Lebanese restaurant "All Jannah", always easy to find vegetarian/vegan options.

BEST PLACE TO HAVE DINNER IN BRUSSELS?

I love going to "L'Everest", a very authentic Indian restaurant. The people are really nice and the place is super cosy.

BEST PLACE FOR GOING OUT IN BRUSSELS?

I sometimes go to the Old-School party at Bazaar. It's every month with good music and a funny 90's atmosphere. I also go to the Recyclart, a super cool place in an old station of Brussels.
