Essential fall knits, pashmina scarves and the occasional cashmere jacket – Katrien Buyle’s A.Puur.A. is fabric heaven. Homebodies have flocked to Buyle’s warm Ghent space (recently joined by a sister store in fashion hub Antwerp) like bees to honey for decades now, unable to resist a good throw pillow, crazily patterned sock or eye-catching plaid. Buyle herself is known as a bit of a Jack of all trades, with both original stationary and sustainable fashion on her mind and hands. As she goes about picking and designing flowy feminine dresses and skirts, the term ‘Puur’ (meaning ‘pure’) in her shop’s name is held in high regard.
