This is Happening, Amsterdam

A one stop shop for the 21st century man

A one stop shop for the 21st century man

Alex Mann

Amsterdam is such a diverse and striking city, with its iconic tall, skinny buildings, canals and bicycles lining the pavements. Known as the cultural capital of northern Europe and home to Van Gogh there is plenty to keep you busy over a long weekend.
Whilst on my city break there was much to see but a shop that really stood out was ‘This is Happening’: a barber, clothes, books and accessories store all in one.  Perfect for 21st Century man who is unashamedly keen to shop for the latest fashionable offerings, whilst simultaneously upgrading their appearance in the vain hope of keeping up with their female counterparts! A one stop shop environment which is as effortlessly cool as it is efficient.
The interior style is modern yet simplistic with steel frames, huge mirrors and a neon green room. So much thought has gone into the experience,  once the barber has finished crafting your unruly mop , next on the agenda is the advice needed to create or finish off your overall look. Fashion is stressful at the best of times so why not stop by This is Happening, pass on the responsibility and enjoy what comes next!
