DEDICATED TO MAKING THE PERFECT CUP OF COFFEE Proud sponsor & coffee supplier of FASHIONCLASH Festival 2018

FASHIONCLASH is honoured to team up with their favourite coffee brand Coffeelovers for the 9th time at the 10th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival. A team of professional baristas will provide everyone with a passion-filled cup of coffee during the festival. In order to connect to this year’s theme ‘Fashion My Religion!’ FASHIONCLASH and Coffeelovers are teaming up to tell a story about our coffee experiences.

ABOUT: Coffeelovers

Coffeelovers loves coffee lovers and vice versa… One can taste and experience the love for the black gold, but also for tea. Every cup of coffee requires a certain amount of freshly milled beans by the specially trained Coffeelovers barista’s. Want a little art piece to slurp away? The baristas will gladly whip up some latte-art for you. Most popular is of course a Coffeelovers heart!

Besides the great selection of coffees and tea, Coffeelovers also presents an extensive food menu with delicious foccacias, salads, muffins and their famous cheesecake to choose from. Are you on the go and don’t have time to chill? Coffeelovers also offers everything to-go.

The company is still growing and in every city that Coffeelovers is to be enjoyed, it has become one of the hotspots to enjoy your day where traditional values, such as quality and hospitality are most important.

As long as you love coffee, Coffeelovers will welcome you with open arms. Feel the love!

HOME OF THE BEST WINES COMBINED WITH A TOUCH OF HISTORYProud sponsor of FASHIONCLASH Festival since 2016 FASHIONCLASH is honoured to team up for the second time with Thiessen Wijnkoopers during FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017. Just like fine wine, this friendship gets better with age as we’re not only treating our festival guests to the beautiful and rich flavours of Thiessen Wijnkoopers. This year we will also present an outstanding exhibition of the new generation of fashion talent from the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts & Design (MAFAD) throughout their beautiful centuries-old house in the heart of Maastricht.

LET’S CELEBRATE: 300 YEARS OF WINE EXPERIENCES At Thiessen Wijnkoopers they know their wines as we know fashion; splendid classics rub shoulders with exciting newcomers. Since 1717 they have led the way in importing quality wines from France and the rest of the world for almost 300 years. Their centuries-old property in the heart of the city is an impressive part of Maastricht’s cultural heritage. Thiessen is the place par excellence for an impressive collection of the best wines, ports and champagnes. Just a five minute walk from the Vrijthof, their beautiful historic premises are also a unique location for tastings, dinners and other gatherings. They even have their own (city) vineyard. Feel free to step inside to discover this hidden treasure and explore the magnificent wine cellars and historical premises based at Grote Gracht 18, and end with a taste of their fantastic wines. You can also experience their passion for wine at FASHIONCLASH Festival, as our glasses will be enriched with their love for wine. 

MAFAD FACES TOMORROW @THIESSEN Thiessen Wijnkoopers is not only the place to be for the best wines! During FASHIONCLASH Festival Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design (MAFAD) is going to present an exciting cross section of its new curriculum program in Design, based on the areas Body, Object and Material. MAFAD is seeking for a new generation of idealistic and socially engaged students viewing society and the existing systems with a critical eye. Inspired by leading innovators, a symbiotic and sustainable image has emerged in which life is consciously expressed regarding a new identity. The areas of Body, Object and Material become more personally oriented towards society, the community.

The "secret" cellars of Thiessen Wijnkoopers are open to the public to experience a broad range of fashion, products, objects, material experiences, jewellery and much more. The talented students are going to guide you through this Wine & Design labyrinth. The ultimate trip down sensory lane! Photo: Nienke Creemers

FASHIONCLASH is honoured to team up for the 8th time with PL-Line, Maastricht based fashion icon that supports FASHIONCLASH since the very beginning.

Just like FASHIONCLASH, PL-Line owner Léon Holla underlines this years 'Fashion Makes Sense' festival theme. "We see clothing as an extension of our personality. As our second skin, it represents who we are and how we want to the world to see us."

Specializing in men’s clothing, the first PL-Line boutique was launched by Holla in the 90s; a fashionable era with key ingredients such as grunge, heroin chic and not to mention clear lines. At the threshold of a red-hot decade, the latest PL-Line store (for both men and women) is all about high quality and avant-garde design, yet also about a new sense of luxury that is more pure and subtle. Gradually high fashion labels take center stage again, and luxury at PL-Line takes the shape of distinct pieces that are made with attention to craft.

Stylishly remixing several leading collections is also a quality found in PL-Line with for example a classic line that consists of Prada’s solid framework and Thom Brown’s or Saint Laurent’s innovative feel. Also, young and upcoming labels that are a bit more budget friendly are featured for a cool charisma that is felt in brands like Off-White by Virgil Abloh for men or Moncler, Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham for women. Two carefully put together lines for the headstrong customer are at the core of PL-Line’s collection: PL-Line Luxury Sportswear, (fresh and flamboyant) plus PL-Line Men & Women City Outfits for the exclusive, fashion vibe with the very best of the international first line collections.

The PL-Line City Outfits store also oozes a cosmopolitan feel, complimented with a gorgeous garden, open to the public on sun-drenched days. Award-winning Interior designer Maurice Mentjens also calls PL-Line a ‘shopping temple’ with an ultra modern and clean look, yet stays in tune with the details of the monumental building. It’s especially this approach that underlines the true character of every piece of clothing, accessory or the special line of evening pieces. At the same time, PL-Line celebrates its Maastricht roots by turning the spotlight on talented, young designers of the FASHIONCLASH Festival.

SENSE OF INSPIRATION The 'What to wear' question might be fashion's biggest question to Google, but when FASHIONCLASH Festival approaches, all the alarm bells tend to go off! Together with the designers, we will deliver enough inspiration on the catwalk and at the Fashion Makes Sense LAB, but fashion expert PL-Line comes to the rescue to help you rock the runway as well. With their latest FASHION(CLASH) inspiration they will tickle your senses so you can show off your personality during the festival!

AND.. don't forget to visit the beautiful PL-Line store to discover their sense of fashion, together with the amazing designs by brands like Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Balmain, Prada, Stella McCartney, Off-White, Amiri, Balenciaga,  Tom Ford and much more.

THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF YOUR PERFECT COFFEE & TEA MOMENT!Proud sponsor of FASHIONCLASH Festival since 2010 & social design project FabricAge

FASHIONCLASH is honoured to team up for the 8th time with COFFEELOVERS during the 9th edition of FASHIONCLASH Festival. AND we can also count on their support during the realisation of our first FabricAge textile design piece for the city of Maastricht in Centre Céramique. A true friend; Tickling our taste buds, empowering our senses and sharing the love for collaboration, craftsmanship, traditional values, hospitableness, and quality.

TASTE, SMELL, FEEL, …. EXPERIENCE THE LOVE! The way WE share our love for fashion, THEY share their love for coffee and coffee lovers (and vice versa!). And true to this year’s theme “Fashion Makes Sense” this affection – not only for the “black gold” but also for tea – promises to be a multi-sensory experience and can be felt, tasted, smelled, envisioned AND triggers the intellect, imagination and more. Because, why should only taste have all the fun? For every cup of coffee, specifically trained Coffeelovers baristas grind a certain amount of coffee beans provided by Maison Blanche Deal, which has been well-known in Maastricht since 1878. Upon request, they will also make you a coffee latte, and without a doubt their Coffeelovers hearts are famous!

Besides serving delicious coffees, Coffeelovers is also the place to be for scrumptious muffins, mouth-watering cakes, and tasty salads and sandwiches.  Soooo…. wanna start, enjoy or have a good end to your day? Drop by at one of the 9 Coffeelovers subsidiaries in the Southern Netherlands and discover the true sense of coffee or tea! Even if you’re in a hurry, Coffeelovers makes sure you can enjoy it “to go”. And we will make sure you don’t have to miss out during the festival as Coffeelovers will pop-up at the SAMDecorfabriek.


PS As for us, we wouldn't think twice about visiting Coffeelovers located in the heavenly ambience of the beautiful 700-year-old former Dominicanen church. Home to an amazing bookshop, proclaimed by the Guardian newspaper as ‘possibly the most beautiful bookshop of all time’. Sit back and enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea surrounded by thousands of books and cast your eye over the centuries-old frescos. We advise everyone coming to Maastricht and the festival to not miss out on Coffeelovers Dominicanen. Pure heaven for all your senses!

#COFFEE BREAK - SUNDAY We will be sharing a Coffee Break Story almost every Sunday as of the 4th of June! 5 Local designers who are part of FabricAge and some of whom will also be present during FASHIONCLASH Festival will be sharing their “cup of inspiration” and “what tickles their fashion senses” with you. Find out what you can expect from Maarten van Mulken and Ebby Port during FabricAge and FASHIONCLASH Festival 2017, why “fashion makes sense” through the eyes of Verena Klein and Jolijn Fiddelaers, and what’s the favourite coffee table book of Suzanne Vaessen from STRIKKS!
