International Duty Free-Carolina Herrera-Good Girl
13Nov 2018

Carolina Herrera’s fragrance GOOD GIRL exclusively in stores at Brussels Airport!

For more than 30 years, Carolina Herrera has created fashion and fragrances defined by the effortless elegance and sophistication that epitomizes New York style. This month, we present Carolina Herrera’s GOOD GIRL, an ultra feminine fragrance that embraces the modern women of today: a fragrance that captures and celebrates her glorious, high-spirited duality.

The sweet, alluring qualities of jasmine give GOOD GIRL its brightness and femininity. The darker side of GOOD GIRL is created with richly fragrant cocoa and intoxicating Tonka. Almond and coffee bring GOOD GIRL its immediate vibrancy. Every part of the fragrance is a reflection of the Herrera woman: even the eye-catching bottle, a midnight blue ultra-high stiletto and gold-heel, includes a complex internal pressure system to diffuse the scent. Both fragrance and bottle express the sensual, confident, feminine and powerful nature of the woman who wears GOOD GIRL.

Discover GOOD GIRL in a travel retail exclusive at the IDF stores in Brussels Airport. Discover the fragrance during your next visit!

International Duty Free-Givenchy L'Interdit
5Nov 2018

Discover Givenchy’s new fragrance “L’Interdit” at the International Duty Free boutiques, Brussels Aiport

Givenchy has launched L’Interdit, a new woody floral fragrance for women. More than 60 years after the original creation, Parfums Givenchy writes a new chapter for this iconic fragrance with a resolutely modern eau de parfum.

L’Interdit is a new version of the 1957 classic inspired by Audrey Hepburn, and joins the recently updated Eau de Givenchy. The intimate friendship between Hubert de Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn was not only amicable but also professional, and gave rise to many creations. It was a rare relationship that shaped the Givenchy House and set the direction from which the future came. One of their most significant collaborations, between designer and more-than-muse, was a fragrance, first created exclusively for Audrey. When Hubert de Givenchy asked if he could commercialise it, legend has it, she initially replied « Je vous l’interdis ! » (“I forbid you!”).

Created by master perfumers Dominique Ropion, Anne Flipo and Fanny Bal, L’Interdit unveils an addictive composition with bright luminosity infused by “black” notes, orange blossom, jasmine, tuberose, vetiver and patchouli ; this bold new perfume is an invitation to cross the line and elegantly embrace individuality. Rooney Mara, a captivating actress recognized for her engagement, is the face of this powerful and memorable fragrance.

The bottle design of 2018 is a clear tribute to the original 1957 bottle. An object that like perfection itself is truly timeless and terribly modern. Strikingly sober, with a round squareness, a soft strength.

Discover this captivating new scent in our IDF boutiques during your next visit!

International duty free-belgian treasures
16Oct 2018

Belgian fashion treasures

IDF is a Belgian company that can trace its origins to the World Expo of 1958 and the construction of the Atomium. It is always adding prestigious brands to the already impressive line-up in the airports of Brussels and Charleroi. This autumn, the spotlight is on three iconic Belgian fashion brands however, namely Delvaux, Essentiel and Kipling.

Kipling

Kipling, the famous fashion brand with its monkey zipper, was founded in 1987 by three friends, who were based in the fashion capital of Antwerp. They discovered a crinkled nylon fabric that was light, functional and very sturdy, allowing them to create a line of bags in an endless array of styles and shapes. In September/October, IDF has chosen to focus on the Back to School collection of backpacks for kids. The Seoul Go, which was inspired by the classic Seoul model, combined comfort and functional with bright, fun colours. The main difference however is the fabric and the reflective details, which increase the visibility of the child who is wearing it.

Visit our Kipling pop-up store in Terminal A at Brussels Airport from 16/10/2018 until 9/12/2018! Discover the new Star Wars (as from November) and New Classics collection and find your perfect travel partner for your next adventure.

International Duty Free-Kipling

 

Delvaux

Established in 1829, making it just one year older than Belgium, Delvaux is the world’s oldest fine leather luxury goods house. Since then, the warrant holder to the Court of Belgium has continued to be a trendsetter with its seasonal collections. The Autumn-Winter 2018 collection is a stunning mix of autumnal colours including scarlet red, an opulent green, electric blue… The new collection also pays tribute to the silver screen, capturing the radiance of black and white films and its glamorous movie stars.

International Duty Free-Delvaux

Essentiel

Essentiel, which was founded in 1999 by two Antwerp-based fashion designers, has succeeded in carving out a niche for itself in the world of luxury ready-to-wear. The brand, which is synonymous of high-quality fashion, with an original twist and affordable prices, is now distributed throughout Europe. The A/W 2018 collection is all about contrasts. Contrasts between the classic cuts and the multicoloured fake furs of the coats, of colours with a capsule collection of pink jumpers and accessories to add a pop of colour to the dark winter days and of proportions with asymmetric styles.

International Duty Free_Bee Nature
5Oct 2018

Bee Nature: Belgian organic cosmetics

For the very first time, IDF boutiques will be stocking a range of Belgian skincare products from Bee Nature. It has taken four years of research in partnership with the UCL (Université Catholique de Louvain) to develop this 100% Belgian brand and its product line. As the name suggests, all Bee Nature products are honey-based. What is more, the honey is organic and fair trade. And since the brand owes so much to the natural world, its products are dermatologically tested on humans but not on animals.

Our favourites

With a full range of face and body treatments, there is a Bee Nature product for people of every age, including babies. One of our favourites is the super soft Baby Moisturising Bodymilk from the Babee Nature line. Organic avocado and jojoba oils have been blended into a light moisturiser that hydrates and protects baby’s skin. For the rest of the family, there is a Hand Cream enriched with organic macadamia and baobab oils and shea butter to protect the skin from damage while working to repair it. The Lip Care, with natural apricot and vanilla flavourings, is perfect for nourishing and gently repairing fragile lips in winter. Not only does it protect your lips from the sun, but it also contains sea buckthorn oil for an anti-ageing effect.

Another flagship product in the Bee Nature skincare range is the Face Cream. Enriched with vitamin C and baobab oil, this light cream has subtle hints of vervain and is ideal for combination and oily skin types. Honey offers numerous benefits for the skin: it is hydrating, soothing, antiseptic, healing, antioxidising and sebo-regulating. The Shampoo is also perfumed with vervain and encompasses all of these properties. It is gentle and conditioning to suit all types of hair. However, it is particularly recommended for greasy and light hair thanks to its slight lightening properties.

You can find all of the Bee Nature products in the IDF boutiques in Terminal A (Express, Giftbox and Walkthrough) and the Walkthrough in Terminal B.
