Check out this short film (above), directed by Joe Hughes, which tells the tale of two stores - MGHO (womenswear) and MGH2O (menswear) - both high end designer fashion emporiums based in Rotterdam, owned by Margreeth Olsthoorn.

Travelling to cities including Paris and Copenhagen several times a year, Margreeth - a designer and curator of fashion, art and design - hand selects pieces by her favourite brands for both stores, situated on Witte de With Straat (the arty bit of Rotterdam).
Alongside brands such as Acne, Avelon, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, Maison Martin Margiela, Comme des Garcons, Spijker & Spijkers, Peter Jensen and Victor & Rolf, Margreeth also curates various art pop-ups in store.
And as I found out for myself when viewing her collection of womenswear and hipster accessories the other week, if you like dark, sombre colours (hello Diane Pernet), then Margreeth's stores are just for you! Think gothic meets edgy meets very expensive price tags.
