No Hunting, Plenty of Gathering...

Martin Lamonthe Captain blazer-dress

If you are like me, and spend an embarrassing amount of time doing online window shopping, and a shameful amount of money each month on items you've never actually seen in person, then maybe you should stop reading right now. Hunting and Collecting isn't a good site for people who are prone to accidentally spreading their wallets from the comfort of their own homes. The Brussels-based store has just launched its e-commerce site, offering up a perfectly curated selection of clothing, books, and desirable objects. It's well stocked with hard to find pieces from designers like Martin Lamonthe, Gemma Degara, Carin Wester, Bless, Stine Goya, and Slow and Steady Wins the Race, alongside Confetti Systems pinatas and necklaces and Harry Allen's iconic Piggy Bank. The selections are so well chosen that it kind of takes the thrill out of "hunting" since they've already done the majority of it for you, leaving the buyer to merely do the "collecting" bit. I really wish I could visit the store in person, since it looks beautiful, but I'll happily settle for their website until I can make it to Brussels...

I like the jumpsuit but everything else is a little blah. The purse's construction is pretty cool though.

wow i love that jacket.
I do collect a lot of things online, but I find I just don't like them as much as the stuff I buy in person.
