This is especially true for stylish products such as young fashion - and even more so, when the shop is on the prestigious Meir in Antwerp. The exterior of its Belgian branch was therefore extremely important for the Spanish company Bershka: modern looks, with a sophisticated vibe that would draw attention to the window dressing, were details just as important as durability and resistance.
