Newsstand boy Paul Frank was never going to make the “Employee of the Month” board… but instead concentrated on promoting his band. Using record-related materials, such as scrap vinyl and 1950’s lettering, he started making individually customized wallets that proved an immediate hit in his hometown of Huntington Beach, California. One day in 1995, Paul gave a wallet to Ryan Heuser, a first-hour fan of the band. Immensely touched by this very personal gift, Ryan became friends with Paul and helped him set up the now legendary American brand Paul Frank Industries (serious stuff: Paul Frank clothing, Paul Frank accessories and Paul Frank watches all rolled into one). The rest – as they say – is history.
Success was immediate and worldwide and the brand very soon enjoyed a cult following, thanks to the products’ bright colors, vinyl fabric and unique sensibilities. Today, almost every teen and twenty-something has a Paul Frank item, whether it’s a garment, a wallet or a wristwatch. A 15-designer strong team creates the characters adorning accessories, watches and clothes, all of whom were trained by the great master Paul Frank himself!
Credit for this success is largely due to Julius (the brand’s monkey) and his friends! Here’s everything you ever wanted to know but never dared ask about the universe of Julius. Born in November 2005, Julius is a Scorpio, albeit a very sociable one with over 200 friends. Sheree makes scrumptious cupcakes, Clancy is a shy and sad giraffe, Worry Bear is highly anxious and neurotic bear, and Chachi is Julius’ passionate puppy that’s madly in love with Esperanza. They all hang out in Julius’s 1970’s über Californian abode with adjoining garage / rehearsal room. As Paul Frank likes to say: ‘there’s something kind of wrong with each one of our characters. That’s why people love them.’
Hurry and visit our bookstore where you will discover the brand and stock up on unique boys’ (2 to 14 years old) T-shirts, hoodies & sets (ts+short)…

A new expression of modern charisma, Bulgari unveils BVLGARI MAN EXTREME, a fragrance that melds an intense Mediterranean freshness and a modern woodiness, evoking Rome’s vitality and strength.
BVLGARI MAN EXTREME is dedicated to man whose quest is to experience emotions that are strong, out-of-the-ordinary and extreme. The new flacon – distinguished by an innovative metallic treatment - is a silver and slate grey monolithic bottle designed to look like it was carved from Roman marble, paying a further tribute to Bulgari’s heritage.
BVLGARI MAN EXTREME revisits the core values of the iconic fragrance BVLGARI MAN whose masculine sensuality is a declaration of innate charisma. Elegant, imposing and addictive it is a woody-fresh eau de toilette infused with a manly appeal and verve, an inebriating mix that stirs the soul to seduce and intrigue. An aroma of vegetal and zesty top notes such as pink grapefruit, Calabrian bergamot and cactus pulp that create a tingling olfactory experience, one that bursts with energy. At the heart, a distinctive floral masculine vibe released by a fusion of white freesia, Guatemalan cardamom and vegetal amber, accented by a luminous trail of reassuring earthy notes such as balsa wood, Haitian vetiver and Laotian benzoin that add an oriental warmth and radiance to this special scent.
Initially inspired by a trip to Tokyo in 2003, Superdry has never ceased to surf the wave of urban wear worldwide. To sum up the emblematic brand: take some Japanese graphics, add typically British tailoring and finally, a touch of American vintage. The quality garments are immediately recognisable and bear ever-renewed unique details.
Starting this spring, you’ll find the brand’s renowned hoodies, polo shirts, t-shirts and shorts for both men and women in the fashion boutiques at terminal A & B. Banzaï!
You’re crazy in love? Say it out loud! Make it perfectly clear with
A LA FOLIE — the Swatch watch that says,” I’m mad about you.”
“True love has nothing to hide”, says Swatch, and proves the point with
A LA FOLIE (GZ281), created especially for Valentine’s Day. The new Swatch Special, a Gent, presents a clear, heart-shaped window in the dial that opens onto the mechanics below. A look through the glass underlines the “no secrets” message: the “heart” of the watch is a movement featuring a handful of romance-coloured components. And what’s that lovely fragrance? It’s the bracelet—it smells like vanilla!
The lovely A LA FOLIE Valentine’s Day Special comes in special packaging with a charming variation on the open-heart theme. A round, pink ball has a smooth white heart on the surface, but a closer look shows the heart is a window onto A LA FOLIE — True love is here, for all to see.

The limited edition of the Dalidol is part of the new unique collection Daligramme of Lancel. Its inspiration comes from a vintage bag developed by Salvador Dali in the 70’s.

In 1912, Jean Neuhaus Junior invented the first ever filled chocolate and decided to name it the “praline”. This marked the beginning of a journey that would take one of Belgium’s most famed products to every corner of the globe, placing the country firmly on the world map of gastronomy.
As part of the centenary celebrations of the creation of the praline, Neuhaus has brought to bear the utmost care and its time-honoured craftsmanship to create a new range of pralines in a variety of eye-pleasing shapes that simply ooze timeless elegance.
The pralines look like unique little gems in refined, stylish shapes that are in keeping with their delicious filling, ensuring that perfect mouth-melting chocolate heaven experience. Like any other Neuhaus praline, the pralines in our new collection have each been given a unique name of their own.
Showcasing the precious jewels they truly are, the pralines are presented in an elegant box to keep after you enjoyed chocolates.

Although Belgium is a small country, it enjoys a worldwide reputation for its many traditions and huge diversity, both geographical and gastronomic… that also extends to the country’s long beer tradition.
Every beer is different, with its own history and context. During the summer months, the Belgian Sky Shops will present their own selection of Belgian beers. One of these is none other than Duvel, which holds a very specific place in the rich tradition of Belgian beers with its subtle bitterness and refined aromas.
Duvel is a 100% pure and natural beer and is devoid of additives or preservatives, which makes an immediately recognisable difference to its taste. Its surprisingly high alcohol content (8.5%), tall, creamy head, delicate effervescence and silky smooth mouth feel distinguish the Duvel from other Belgian beers. Once bottled, the beer undergoes a second 2-week fermentation process in the brewery’s warm cellars before being cooled for another 6 weeks in the cold rooms. This long and unique maturing method contributes to the exquisite flavours and pure aromas of Duvel.

Ready for a mind-blowing experience? Then the Ardbeg Corryvreckan was blended for you. This single malt owes its name to a dangerously renowned whirlpool to the north of the Scottish isle of Islay. This intense, complex whisky manages to balance the untameable character and passion of the Ardberg nature with unexpected softness and delicateness, making it an essential component to any whisky lover’s collection…
The second rebel also draws its name from Islay, albeit in the island’s loch. The characteristics of this monument of authenticity and originality revolve around the rich notes of sherry ensuing from the maturing process of the liquid gold in old sherry casks. Awarded with the prestigious prize of Whisky of the Year in Jim Murray’s 2009 edition Whisky Bible, the Ardberg Uigeadai is nothing short of a true taste of Scotland in a tumbler.

Cartier’s latest fragrance is much more than a perfume. This innovation in the universe of high perfumery consists in a great floral composition around one theme, the purest flower of them all… the lily.
Baiser Volé recreates the delicacy of a bunch of lilies with the sensuousness of the petals, the powdery pistil and the freshness of the leaves. The sublime bottle remains faithful to the tradition of the legendary jeweller and invites the sophisticated woman to clasp the bottle as she would a piece of jewellery while the magnetic essence incites every man caught in the trail of the fragrance to steal a kiss.
When Salvador Dali meets Gala in the summer of 1929, his life changes forever. She becomes his muse, his inspiration, his everything… forever. She is the brush he paints with, the pencil between his fingers, the canvas for his love, his alphabet. For her, he will create the “Daligramas”.
In 1970, Dali asks fine leather craftsman Lancel to create a Daligramas-pinted bag and today, the esoteric symbols that still convey love and art return in a new Lancel collection, simply baptised Daligramme. You will simply adore the quirky bicycle chain charm, which symbolises the true commitment between two energies going in the same direction.
Take advantage of your passage at the airport to discover the exclusive Lancel collection at a great price, and write your love with a daligram!

Brussels, 13 December 2010 – In compliance with a European Resolution, tax-free shopping in airports ended in 1999. Today, this decision still confuses air-travellers, who are not aware that it is still possible to purchase products in Belgian airports at an advantageous price. According to a survey by research institute Alpha Marketing Research (commissioned by Belgian Sky Shops) 68% of airline travellers still don’t know that they can buy cheaper products when taking a plane. Thus, millions of passengers miss on great deals every year.
The European authorities banned tax-free shopping in airports in 1999. Since then, people travelling inside the European Union must pay the VAT (21% in Belgium) on all products purchased in Belgian airports. The owner of most of the airport’s shops reacted by reducing his prices by 21%, the amount of the VAT. The survey concludes that only a small minority of travellers are aware of this advantage. In 2009 alone, Brussels airport received 17 million travellers, and Charleroi 4 million. Ultimately, this means that millions of passengers have an incorrect perception of the pricing.
486 passengers were interviewed at Brussels airport within the framework of this survey. 28% never make a purchase at the airport. Only 33% were aware that the price of most products sold at the airport is advantageous. And even fewer travellers were conscious that this price advantage was also applicable for travel inside the European Union. Furthermore, only 19% of people interviewed knew that most of the prices in the airport are lower than in the city.
In 1999, a European Resolution banned the tax-free sale of products in airports for intra-European Union passengers. Belgian Sky Shop, which owns most of the shops in the Brussels and Charleroi airports, thus decided to modify its pricing policy in such a way that passengers travelling inside the European Union should not be penalised by this resolution. They managed to do this by adjusting most of their products’ prices in such a way that their clients could still benefit from the blatant advantage of tax-free prices. Prices for passengers travelling inside the European Union are identical than for those travelling outside Europe. Belgian Sky Shop’s pricing policy consists in deducting the tax on added value (in Belgium, this tax can be up to 21%) from the prices applicable in the city, for most of its products (see here a table summarising Belgian Sky Shop’s pricing policy for its main product categories).
With the aim of tackling this confusion of passengers, Belgian Sky Shops launched an intensive communication campaign in the Brussels and Charleroi airports.
Nicolas Van Brandt, CEO of Belgian Sky Shops, explains: “the abolition of tax-free shopping proved a huge disappointment for many people travelling in Europe, which is understandable. We wanted travellers to benefit from advantageous prices at the airport. When you travel inside the European Union, you will pay the same price as you would if you were travelling outside Europe for most of the products on sale. Since the prices at the airport are much lower than in the city, every traveller may rest assured and be certain that making purchases at the airport makes good financial sense.
Mr Van Bradt further adds that very few people are aware that these same prices are also applicable for travellers coming back to Belgium. Upon their return, they can very well enjoy the same tax-free advantage.
