A Belgian Supermodel at Home in Antwerp

Issue 65 · Belgium and Beyond · March 29, 2013

Before Anouck Lepère was the face of Chanel and Hugo Boss and walking the runway of Dries van Noten, she was holed up in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp studying architecture.

The Antwerp-born supermodel has applied her design eye to her own apartment, a considered space blending Danish midcentury design with cultural antiques beyond the borders of central Europe. Visit Nowness for more.
