yesterday, the website was launched for this new brand, atelier de l'armee
atelier de l'armée is a company that offers an environment where beautiful collectable items are brought together and presented for a reintroduction to the world.
their heritage clothing is carefully selected mix of rare handpicked second hand items and most are collectables. some have been customized, other have been adjusted, but most are untouched. all are denim related or inspired by vintage workwear and military clothes.
their bags are all hand crafted from nothing but recycled materials in a small workshop in amsterdam. these, mostly, military materials have retained their strength and aged beautifully over time. since they were designed to survive a war they can surely handle the concrete jungle of modern day society in their new forms.
'for the love of the old, the worn, the rusted, the faded, the stained and the patched.'
(and, yes, their model is my boyfriend yves!)
although me and my boyfriend don't celebrate valentines day, at the moment there's a ten euro valentines discount on all products in my shop. but hey, valentines or not, it's always nice to surprise someone with a special gift, made with love! :)
if you'd add a little text during check out, i'll make sure i add a handwritten love note too!
