Webshop www.raibufashion.com 2010
At our core we offer contemporary women’s fashion that’s both stylish and different from the mainstream, sourced from small, independent suppliers around the world. Some pieces come from a single designer, some from brands which are more established, but all of which are unknown outside their hometown, not to mention here in the Netherlands. What we do exactly? We venture out, track down products and brands which inspire us, and then literally handpick the items we like most and bring them back home to Amsterdam to form the Raibu collection.
The Raibu style ranges from sporty/casual-chic to uptown and sophisticated, with all designs having something original and unique about them. Most pieces are easy to combine with basics, turning a daily outfit into something special in an instant.
Raibu Store 2014
Raibu began it’s journey in 2010 with the collection exclusively offered through our online store Raibufashion.com, later moving into popup stores and collaborative events with emerging artists, designers and musicians to mix Raibu fashion with other fields of contemporary culture. End of 2014 we created our permanent retail store, work and exhibition space in De Baarsjes, Amsterdam West, where Raibu now continues to evolve, experiment and grow.
