Together celebrates a new addition to the prestigious Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. 

This year marks the 175th anniversary of Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert. Brussels residents and visitors alike love to wander through this elegant and prestigious thoroughfare. Formerly nicknamed the “umbrella of Brussels”, it’s the perfect escape from the vicissitudes of the Belgian weather! 

Now there is a new reason why you will want to visit. Roseline d’Oreye has opened her own boutique at number 10 Galerie St Hubert. The very bright shop plunges the visitor into her ludic and joyful world.

“I fell in love with the silk scarf, for me the silk scarf is a piece of art that you can wear”

Roseline’s first love was drawing and illustration. She is inspired by her travels where she makes her preliminary sketches, these are then developed and applied to her silk scarves: “I fell in love with the silk scarf, for me the silk scarf is a piece of art that you wear.” 

Her Belgian-themed scarves are playful celebrations of all things Belge: chocolates; sprouts; Belgian landmarks. They’re the perfect gift for someone who isn’t too earnest and who has made Brussels their home. 

The full versatility of how a scarf can be worn is also on display in the shop, Roseline is happy to offer guidance on how to craft a bandana, or turn it into a top; she even organises “how to” workshops for groups, individuals or professional events. 

In addition to the simpler scarf there are kimonos, tunics and pouches.

If you are looking for that special gift to mark a “significant” birthday, there is also the possibility of creating a personalized silk scarf. There are a number of  options available , you could add an inscription of a first name, or a short phrase of your choice. The second option is modifying some colors of an existing silk square, without modifying its design. The third possibility is to add a custom design, or the adaptation of a pattern, based on one of Roseline’s existing designs. And finally, the fourth option is a beginning-to-end creation of your luxury accessory based on your ideas – even to help you to elaborate a theme.
