“Out of our mutual love for durable materials, timeless design and the continuous search for beautiful items we created Atelier de l’Armée.”
Atelier de l’Armée is a dutch brand that creates products that are well constructed, skillfully crafted and have amazing detailing. Getting inspired by the functionality and durability of vintage work and military menswear. The brand even thought about the environment weill making the products and are handcrafted, made out of limited batches of deadstock leathers.
They also sell hand picked unique vintage items, or even collectables. Picking by taste, Atelier de l’Armée selects item by denim, vintage workwear or old military items. The items get more and more interesting and beautiful by wearing it.

And when he get there he sleeps in his 87 m2 loft in Chelsea. Creating a space full with design, art and new ideas. Making a patchwork of old plates of brass lamps on the ceiling, hanging different kinds of animals on the wall, industrial objects (chairs, stairs and display cabinet) and of course a lot of art by Alex Katz, James Rosenquist and Damien Hirst.Photography by Fran Parente For Casa Vogue – www.franparente.com
