The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Behave Yourself in Amsterdam


3. What to Do

Droog@home stocks furniture and home accessories from designers working with industrial and recycled materials, as well as a sense of humor.  

Shop for Dutch ideas, clothes, and housewares you won't find in Gotham, though currently superhot thanks to Moss and the "Simply Droog" show at the Museum of Arts & Design (through January 14, 2007). Visit the Dutch collection's headquarters, Droog@Home, and buy prototypes and designs that haven't crossed the Atlantic, such as Red Revisited's polystyrene crockery. Also new this summer: Blend magazine's guerilla store 60daysofspace, selling lowrider bikes and Dr Denim skinny jeans. Concept store SPRMRKT's offerings range from Dior stockings and plane-motif scarves by And Beyond to art books, second-hand moose-head trophies, acid-bright leather bags, and mid-century furniture by Arne Jacobson. Denim couturier Blue Blood's first store is on P.C. Hooftstraat, Amsterdam's Madison Avenue.
