The nine streets that weave between Amsterdam’s western canal ring are collectively known as de Negen Straatjes. This quaint, photogenic neighborhood has a distinctive boutique economy, and accommodates local and international designers. Many of its stores sell unique items that can only be found in Amsterdam, including handmade jewelry and restored vintage clothing. To help you navigate this beautiful neighborhood, we’ve put together a guide to its best boutique shops.

De Maagd & de Leeuw

The owners of this French styled boutique expertly curate their stock and regularly travel to Paris for research, returning with clothes that simultaneously appeal to modern tastes while keeping to classic design. The shop sells a large variety of dresses and suits, as well as smaller accessories. Most items are colored using a deep, restrained palate that exudes grace and sophistication, making de Maagd & de Leeuw a perfect place to pick up evening wear, or office clothing.

1. Beauregard Amsterdam


In the early 90s, Beauregard’s creators opened their first shop in de Negen Straatjes. This small company gradually grew into an international business that imported the finest fashion from France straight to shoppers in Amsterdam. Beauregard has kept this original shop open and now uses it as their headquarters. Their collection changes by season and is hand picked by Beauregard’s management.
