atelier suppan
paris, france

Alex, the French designer behind Atelier Suppan, creates unique and utilitarian pieces that are thoughtfully designed with truly amazing detail and craftsmanship. Hems and collars are often hand finished, fabric is hand dyed, shapes are twisted and closures off center.

Many of her pieces are quite adjustable with sterling silver hooks or buttons, and can be worn a multitude of ways.

All pieces are limited edition and handmade in her Paris atelier.

Paris-based Gareth Casey is heavily inspired by workwear, using the finest milled traditional fabrics in his collections. He is perhaps best known for his signature paper cotton fabric, an absolute necessity around the shop with its soft hand and beautifully wrinkled appearance.

Each garment is finished with a hand sewn red thread, a Casey Casey trademark and a nod to the meticulous construction and attention to detail on all of their garments.

Yorkshire-based Alex Jones of Studio Kettle prefers to think of garments as narrative objects. The story of a garment begins with the process of its creation - it's loaded with the history of honest workmanship.

Many of Studio Kettle's items are cut from abstract paintings on canvas, and thus their narrative begins as a work of art.

Elena Dawson works with only a handful of retailers, and her designs are driven by cloth, rather than sketches.

Her experience as a seamstress after university greatly influences her work. “I draw on the knowledge I learned at the tailors still now in the way I make clothing—when you work on alterations you are really tearing the guts out of the garment, performing a sort of autopsy—you really get to see a garment at its most vulnerable point. Observing this state of semi deconstruction in the making of a garment or shoe is what I like to retain in my finished work."

All pieces are handmade in the UK.

Florence, Italy

 Boboutic’s approach to knitwear is unpredictable, aiming at creating a product where materials and structures compensate each other.

The yarn, considered as an endless line, is ideally kept intact by rejecting the use of scissors in the making of the garments. They work around the idea of a “knitwear wardrobe”, living and working in Florence, Italy.

LONDON, ENGLAND

London-based Toogood is the brainchild of sisters Faye & Erica Toogood. Faye worked as a costume designer and a pattern cutter before combining forces with her sister to focus on this line that features unique, sculptural, and genderless silhouettes inspired by workwear.

“A celebration of craftsmanship has been at the core of the brand from the outset. Each piece takes its name, inspiration and cut from a traditional trade: the ‘Metalworker’ jacket, the ‘Stonemason’ trouser, and so on.
Toogood’s clothing is instilled with the unmistakable spirit of both sisters: Faye’s preoccupation with materiality and Erica’s audacious shape-making. One a tinker, the other a tailor.”
