Recently in Tokyo, Japan, Bob Follen, co-founder of VIER ANTWERP, took the time to sit down with our team.

Decorated as one of Antwerp‘s best — and known as Raf Simons’ favorite skate shop — it was only in due time that VIER would start making waves across the world. Thanks to Simons stating he never travels without his VIER sweatshirt to The Wall Street Journal, the shop has sustained considerable influence.

Located in Antwerp’s fourth district, VIER offers up an exclusive selection of emerging streetwear brands and notable names such as Raf and Gosha. The carefully curated items also range from technical outwear to high-end sportswear. It’s no doubt VIER has helped Antwerp in becoming Belgium’s capital of cool, drawing in everyone from fashion moguls to art aficionados.

Take a peek at our Streetsnaps series featuring Follen himself and keep it locked to HYPEBEAST for our in-depth interview with the founder to come at a later date.

While you wait, check out our City Guide to Antwerp.
