discover nature with us !
We believe our little country has a lot of beautiful “hidden” spots to discover! Lately we fell up on ‘the Botanical Garden of Meise’ which is a true gem.
This must-visit is a home to 18.000 species of trees, plants and flowers from all over the world. Scattered along a 92ha large estate, a paradise of greenery is displayed in exterior gardens and different greenhouses. The largest greenhouse the ‘Plant Palace’ was the perfect location for this Summer ’20 campaign. You can stroll through the estate alone or take a guided tour to discover interesting stories and fun facts about plants.
More than a museum, the botanical garden has an ecological and scientifical mission. The venue is an ideal habitat for floral scientific research and preservation purposes.
Every Summer in August, this cool place organizes an event called “Wonderweekend”. The whole venue is dedicated to family enjoyment. Numerous activities like games, cultural visits and food trucks are organised all over the estate. You can spend the night in a cardboard tent, the perfect family getaway!

OUR FIRST 100% FAIR HOODIE IS A FACT !
We are very happy and proud to announce the launch of our first 100 % sustainable product !
The artwork on this limited hoodie is made by a young, upcoming artist “ZIRO artwork”, founded by the talented Jan-Willem Van Der Maelen. Ziro gets his inspiration mainly from the 80’s when AO76 was still very young... He is also a big sci-fi lover !
We discovered his work during an exhibition by Kunstgezind. Kunstgezind is established in Antwerp & created to encourage promising young artists and support them in their artistic endeavours. We believe these young artists have an important message to deliver in our society. The creation of this trendy & unique hoodie is the result of our first collaboration, with many more to come!
The hoodie itself is made of 100% organic cotton/polyester coming from a certified GOTS, FAIR WEAR, ORGANIC COTTON supplier. Fairness is crucial in our world of today. It is also the way in which we want to move forward as a Belgian fashion brand. Sustainability is about community & strength in collaboration.
The sweater is a limited edition and is available for all kids and their families because together we are amazing !
GHENT CITY TOUR WITH OUR TEENS - WE ARE AWESOME !
Today our teens take us for a tour through our beautiful hometown of Ghent. Meet Bruna & Marie. Bruna is 12, a happy girl who loves kickboxing, acting in theatre and hanging out with her friends. Marie is 14, very sportive and always in a good mood. Weekly, she does 16 hours of gym.
Meet Andrea and Emile. Andrea is 12 and has a passion for hip-hop and hockey. He thought the shoot was awesome and AO76 clothes too! Emile is 14, loves soccer and biking with his friends. He was very happy to discover what Ghent has to offer!
We began our journey in our Ghent flagshipstore where our pack picked their perfect outfit. They hopped on their bike to show us the sights of this beautiful city. Even though it exists since the Middle Ages, Ghent is young and creative.
Due to its compact size, it is easily visited on foot or by bike and is dotted by bars, cafes and shops for hip stops.
Graffiti and street art are everywhere, artsy festivals happen all year round, the newest architecture melts with the oldest buildings.
De Kouter is one of Ghent’s largest squares and has a flower-market every Sunday morning. Watching a big band playing ‘Evergreens’ is a popular weekend attraction.
The historical heart with its old houses along the banks of the “de Leie”, is a popular after-school hangout for teens. There is always music in the streets due to the many musicians, close to the famous three towers of Ghent; St. Nicolas' Church, Belfort Tower and St. Bavo's Cathedral.
Moor&Moor, our favourite organic bar is another one of these groovy meeting places for students of the nearby art schools. Roaming a trendy city in comfy outfits…
