It’s in the duality of modern living, in between urban environment and the natural world, that designer Antonin tron finds inspiration for his brand Atlein.

Attentive to form and physicality, Antonin’s work is focused on the body, its tension, energyandmovement.

With Atlein, he aims to present a new proposition for women based on quality, comfort and authenticity. Shaped by subcultures, off-road travels, new technologies, independent music and contemporary art, Antonin’s research is drawn to singularity.

For the first collection he committed to the sole use of jersey to deliver a precise ready-to-wear statement. Made in France, dresses, tops and skirts are defined by sharp cuts, structured drapes and elaborate pleats. The graphic application of top-stitches on hips, shoulders and waist strengthens the construction of each garment.

Atlein is a destination, a place for research and independence. Born in Paris, Antonin studied fashion design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp before working as designer for Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Balenciaga.
