AFW and De L’Europe invite a new designer each month for an AFW Suite takeover

From hotel front takeovers by Ronald van der Kemp, to the AFW Suite holding some of AFW initiator Danie Bles’ favourite creations; the longstanding partnership between Amsterdam Fashion Week and Hotel De L’Europe isn’t limited to our main event in September. Now, as part of our residence in one of the hotel’s ‘t Huys rooms, AFW invites one designer each month to transform the AFW Suite into their own palace of visual excitation. This month, we delve into the world of Wandler.


‘t Huys is De L’Europe’s answer to anyone who likes to douse themselves in to Dutch creative culture. Encouraging connection and enjoyment alongside incredible views and eclectically curated interiors, ‘t Huys offers seven unique suits, including the Harper’s Bazaar suite and the AFW suite.

The waterfront suite, styled by Danie Bles, contains a curated selection of exciting local and international brands including lighting atelier Madame Garage. From December on, the unique space welcomes a new designer each month. To inaugurate this concept, distinguished Dutch luxury accessories brand transformed the suite in a floral exploration. Wandler’s designs reflect the beauty found in the floral world. Throughout the space, the guests explore the subtle details and craftsmanship defining Wandler’s collections, whether it’s in the artworks from artist Kamilla Sipika, the books from Atheneaum, or the scents in the bathroom.

Additionally, the AFW Suite guests will be treated to a plethora of added luxuries that evoke the captivating narrative of the brand’s essence. Among these luxuries is the opportunity to try the curated Wandler bags available within the AFW Suite, as well as a small souvenir to take home as a reminder of your stay.

Making the floral world of Wandler come to life is Skins Cosmetics, whom collaborated with Wandler to create a limited-edition beauty bag, as well as artist Kamila Sipika, whose series of contemporary floral paintings adorn the walls in the suite.

Visit the Wandler-themed AFW Suite until the end of January, or book the suite later this year and let us surprise you with takeovers by brands such as Love Stories and FRANCON, amongst many others!
