Raise your glass to the sun with Veuve Clicquot!

Summer’s here in time: to celebrate the invention of the world-famous rosé champagne, the iconic sparkling wine brand releases two limited editions: Colorama Rosé Brut and Yellow Label Brut.

Veuve Clicquot’s obsession with colours did not happen by chance: intent that her wines should please the eye as much as the palate, in 1818 Madame Clicquot develops an innovative tool, the ridding table, which allows producing a crystal clear champagne. She firmly believed that the colour of the wine is as important as the taste it leaves in the mouth. Paying tribute to this philosophy, the Maison’s greatest offering is clad in magnificent yellow sun hues.

Discover the Colorama Rosé Brut and the Yellow Label Brut at the booth set up in the Walkthrough of Terminals A and B. Celebrate Madame Clicquot’s anniversary and purchase a bottle packaged in fun and customizable boxes. The limited edition is available all month and will prove the ideal door opener for this summer’s parties! Exclusive for travellers: a winking eye shopping bag on the theme of travel.

Coach’s gothic Disney princess

Coach, the famous American ready-to-wear and leather goods brand joins together with Disney for a special-edition collection. After two previous collaborations, this time round, Stuart Vevers, Coach’s Creative Director, got inspired by Disney Princess tales.

Although stories like Sleeping Beauty are all-time classics, the style of “A Dark Fairytale”, Coach’s new Pre-Fall 2018 collection, is not classic at all. On the contrary, it explores the darker side of fairytales like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with the evil witches and poisoned apples. The result is an edgy collection, which combines Disney’s fantasy world with Coach’s creativity.

The romantic side of fairy tales is interspersed with spooky undertones. T-shirts in nostalgic colors enhanced with rock-and-roll fonts are mixed with moto jackets. In this collection, the authentic Coach American sportswear is stylized with Disney patches and embellishments. These unexpected juxtapositions create an irreverent look that is totally in line with the brand’s vision of design.

Discover the “Dark Fairytale” collection at Brussels airport’s Luxury Hall, terminal A.

Travel with Leonidas and Asterix

The famous little Gaul and his friends invite travellers to discover their world through 3 gift boxes developed with Leonidas.

We all know the adventures of Asterix, which have been entertaining the young and old for decades. Travel before the time of 2 thousand years ago in Europe, where Asterix makes us discover all of Gaul. It is therefore understandable that Leonidas teamed up with Asterix for a series of boxes available exclusively in IDF stores.

Asterix Album Gift Box – 295g

A beautiful gift box that takes the form of a comic book! Inside, you will find 48 Neapolitan dark and milk chocolates, in individual packages, which evoke the adventures of Asterix.
But that’s not all: the box also contains a puzzle, enough to spend good times with family or friends.

Asterix Money Metal Box – 400g

Asterix and his friends now have their own currency … in chocolate! Milk chocolate pieces wrapped in golden aluminum.
Once empty, the metal box can be a nice piggy bank for children.

Asterix Neapolitan Box – 12 pieces

A convenient size to go on a trip, this box contains 12 dark and milk Neapolitans, individually wrapped.
For this collection, 16 different packages have been created. Each box therefore contains a unique combination of 12 of these packages.

All chocolates in the Asterix collection are alcohol free.

Hugo Boss Bottled United
8Jun 2018


Football Fan? So is HUGO BOSS! To celebrate this year’s FIFA world cup, the German ready-to-wear brand created a limited edition of a new men’s fragrance. HUGO BOSS BOTTLED UNITED is the perfect combination of sophistication and sport, in the image of its ambassadors: football star Harry Kane, Julian Draxler, Alvaro Morata, and Philippe Coutinho.

The fresh and vivifying HUGO BOSS BOTTLED UNITED magnificently combines the smells of an open-air football pitch and the luxurious city heat. Green mint and blood oranges reinforce the musky notes of South African Agathosma betulina, and the fresh scent contrasts with the warmth and sensuousness of the wooden notes of vetiver and sandalwood.

On the occasion of the release of the HUGO BOSS’ new fragrance and of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Brussels airport’s Terminals A and B will be decked with demarcation lines. Passengers are welcome to play a game of table football surrounded by the life-size effigies of the four ambassadors of the perfume.

HUBO BOSS BOTTLED UNITED is available in Brussels and Charleroi airports. Come and discover this new perfume in our shops and receive an exceptional present for purchases of 100 ml or 200 ml.

Festival season is starting soon, and Tomorrowland is returning for its fourteenth edition. As well as in the music, the essence of the festival undeniably lies into its surreal atmosphere, its dreamy setting, its food from all over the world, but also… the fashionable outfits of its visitors! This year, getting dressed to attend Tomorrowland will be easier than ever, thanks to the new TML by Tomorrowland collection. Now available at The Fashion Studio in Terminal A at Brussels Airport.

The TML by Tomorrowland clothing line has just launched, and it is as fashionable and inspiring as you could imagine! Conceived with an eye for quality and detail, this collection is fresh, urban and very evocative of Summer, and conveys an international and energetic look. Carefree, it is also very stylish. It is inspired by nature and ‘Wanderlust’, and the iconic Tomorrowland symbols – such as the logo and Amare- are subtly present in the whole collection.

The fabrics have been carefully chosen, and the shapes will make you long for summer festivals! Must-have t-shirts, cool hoodie and hip (denim) jackets combine perfectly with the elegant dresses, trendy caps and other colourful tops. They will keep you in style during the festival and for a long time after.

A cocktail bar in Terminal A

Do the names Foraged Tonic, Cointreau Fizz or Porn Star Martini ring a bell? If they do, hurry up and enjoy a delicious tipple at Terminal A’s “Cocktail Affair”. Come and discover (or rekindle with) these delicious drinks made using The Botanist Gin, Cointreau and Passoã.

The Botanist Gin owes its reputation to its unique botanical composition. Made of 22 endemic plants of Islay, where it is still traditionally made, the subtly perfumed Botanist expresses every trait of the inspiring Scottish island. Enjoy its rich aromas and velvety taste on its own or use it for your favourite cocktail.

The mere mention of Cointreau awakens the nostrils and immediately, the coarse yet sweet orange aromas fill the air and bring a sparkle to the early summer! Created in 1875 in the distillery of the Cointreau family in Angers, the liqueur made out of orange peel is renowned all around the world and serves as the base of plethora scrumptiously and devilishly good cocktails.

When Cointreau’s master distiller set foot in Brazil, he discovered passion fruit and decided to create a liqueur. Passoã was born and now serves as the essential base for a wide selection of exotic cocktails. For a first experience, try the Porn Star Martini: a mixture of vodka, Passoã with vanilla syrup, passion fruit and some lime juice… lusciously naughty!

Start your summer love affair with all thinks fruity and nice in the Cocktail Affair bar (Terminal A’s walkthrough – Brussels airport)!

The new summer collection of Belgian casual chic brand ESSENTIEL is all about colour. The latest womenswear collection of the Antwerp-based label adds a pop of colour to your wardrobe, with exotic and floral prints that are combined with polka dots and stripes. The designers chose lightweight, fluid fabrics so the garments fall loosely around the body. The botanical theme is a constant throughout, with daisies and bright red cherries as well as colourful tropical patterns. T-shirts and sweatshirts with sparkly embroidered parrots can be combined with wide straight trousers or a skirt with a geometric pattern. The motto for this season clearly is everything goes. And thanks to the new collection you can mix and match elegant pieces that also feel comfortable to wear.

Are you the type of woman who doesn’t want to give her outfit too much thought in the morning? Now ESSENTIEL makes weekdays much easier with a t-shirt for every day of the week, from a manic Monday to a lazy Sunday. For a look that is both put-together and fashionably casual, why not choose an outfit that was inspired by pyjamas?

After the Muppets and other Disney characters, this summer Essential has collaborated with Peanuts for its new collection. Snoopy and his friend, Woodstock the bird, are featured on skirts, sweatshirts and handbags. The shoe collection is just as colourful with open shoes or striped platform sandals.

You can find the new ESSENTIEL collection in the Fashion Studio in Terminal A at Brussels Airport.
