Store name: Mr Ego
When we first launched the shop, we were planning to call it “Under Elvis” because the well-known Belgian hat designer Elvis Pompilio lives just upstairs, but he wasn’t flattered by the reference, which we settled (in court!) and so the shop name “Mr. Ego” was born.
Who are you?
Julie (buyer and sales)
What is the store concept?
Streetwear that you can’t find everywhere else.
With clothes for both men and women, we stock a broad selection of original brands at an affordable price point. We aim to be different from the clothes you would find on the high street and to give our clients a cool, original look.
Who shops here?
Our client is YOUNG, an individual and looking to express themselves in cool clothing.
Which celebrity would you love to see come in Mr Ego?

Why do you love GIRLS FROM OMSK?
First off, they’re a Belgian label. We love the collection and it compliments a lot of the other styles in the shop. At first they were a bit too pricey for us. But now we find that the price point works for our clients as well. Which is great because the streetwear vibe is great. And it’s nice to have a local independent label in the shop.
What is your favorite item from the FW2011 GIRLS FROM OMSK collection?
I love the MISTY MOLTONNE - everyone needs a good puffer jacket. (here’s Julie in the MISTY MOLTONNE)
Can you tell us something more?
We love the local music and art scene. We're always presenting new artists and musicians. We invite DJs in on some Saturdays to do music sets in the shop.
How can we find you?
