The Antwerp-based brand is influenced by the numerous life experiences of its founders Esfan Eghtessadi and Inge Onsea. They were influenced by their parents and both fell in love with textiles, colour, prints and unexpected combinations.  In 1999, they began a t-shirt brand and within four seasons had expanded to a full women's collection.

Essentiel Antwerp stands for refreshing, offbeat and luxurious fashion, renowned for its graphic or floral prints and unusual mixes of colour. The rich and unique collections are designed to provoke an emotional response.  It shares a powerful message of love, fun, and colourful surprises that we embrace at The Jacksons and often use our curated Essentiel collection to brighten up any look.
