ATP Atelier

ATP Atelier shoes and leather goods bring together genuine Italian craftsmanship with a Scandinavian sense of contemporary design. All items are made in Italy, by local craftsmen that work under sustainable conditions and fair wages. All products are handmade with tremendous love and a passion for details, using the finest Tuscan leather, mostly vegetable tanned. The result is effortlessly elegant shoes and leather goods that will age beautifully over time.

ATP Atelier – All Tomorrow’s Parties, was founded in 2011 by Jonas Clason and Maj-La Pizzelli. Good old friends, each recognizing in the other a passion for style rather than fashion. The brand has since then seen a remarkable growth. ATP Atelier is represented by carefully selected retailers worldwide, such as Net-a-Porter, The Line in the US and Browns Fashion in the UK.

BACK

Ann-Sofie Back is known for her somewhat unusual sources of inspiration from celebrity obsession to porn or more recently her shame of Sweden. The style is rooted in Scandinavian aesthetics; it’s often androgynous and breaking the restraints of a nation steeped in tradition. Ann-Sofie has always had one foot in the art world with exhibitions and conceptual designs and the other foot firmly in commerce with her more reasonably priced merch collection including logo and slogan printed t-shirts, caps, hats, bags and even condoms! Her position as a designer is unique and she successfully balances art and commerce. 


BACK was founded in 2005, by designer Ann-Sofie Back. In 2009 the designer teamed up with business partner Jennie Rosén and relocated to Stockholm from London. Today BACK has ca. 100 stockists worldwide, ranging from large commercial department stores to independent leading boutiques such as Opening Ceremony in New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo.

CorneliaWebb_Classic_9.jpg

Cornelia Webb

Former medical student and self taught jewellery designer Cornelia Webb has a fascination for the human anatomy and has found the body to be her canvas of choice, sketching designs directly onto her skin. Since designing her first chain dress in 2006, Cornelia has been driven by the thought of literally dressing the whole body in jewellery. Cornelia Webb emphasizes craftsmanship, timelessness and environmental consciousness in her work. Cornelia chooses to reinvent design rather than constantly produce new items. She was in 2012 awarded with the prestigious Best Accessory Designer Award by ELLE Sweden.

With her sculptural avant-garde garments and accessories Cornelia has gained widespread popularity amongst stylists and international publications and as well as attention from stores such as L’Eclaireur, Lane Crawford and Joyce.
