Atelier Charlie celebrates modern men. We offer a fresh, honest and intelligent clothing collection that allows men to fully express themselves. Your support will deliver you a new wardrobe and will help us to establish our creative dream: Atelier Charlie.

Charlie originates from the Germanic word for ‘free man’. By offering instant classics, made from meticulously sourced and specially developed materials with surprising detail and colour, Atelier Charlie sets its wearer free. Free from abundance and excess, free to tell his own distinctive story. At Atelier Charlie we want to go back to the core of clothing. Fifteen items in different colours and fabrics, produced in Italy and Portugal, form the basis of the collection. Designed to be effortlessly combined, each piece of clothing will feel and wear soft like your favourite pyjamas, but will make you look well dressed. The collection will be something that makes you feel confident throughout your day and enables you to perform better. Clothes are an important part of your everyday life. In a busy life full of work, friends, family and a lot of choices to make every day, you don’t want to loose too much time thinking about your outfit, what to wear; but you want to choose right. Charlie helps you, by creating your total personal wardrobe. 

Browse through the collection below, or click on this link to see larger pictures on our website.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The collection will constantly be improved, evolved, expanded. All styles are made with love, in the finest materials, by experienced people who know what they are doing and who share our thoughts: preferring quality over quantity, slow fashion over fast fashion. All clothes are made in good working environments. We think sustainable clothes don’t have to be boring. To keep expanding and evolving this project, we want to ask your help. Backing us in this project, will help make this creative dream come true, but especially it’s your opportunity to be one of the first Charlies. Which means; you order the styles you like now, with the early-bird discount, and this fall you will enjoy your new wardrobe. Please do try this at home :-)

We hope you never want to wear anything else ever again and that the world will be filled with Charles.

HOW WE DO IT 

• Supply Chain - Thanks to our manufacturing partnerships and direct-to-consumer approach, we skip the industry’s middle men markups (wholesalers, brokers, and distributors) and pass these savings to you. 

• Design - We’ve spent half a year working with our manufacturers to develop prototypes and perfect our designs. We obsessed over every last detail and are proud to share our first collection of modern, special and easy designs.

• Customer Experience - We will do whatever it takes for you to be completely satisfied with your customer experience. We sell directly to you online and in our pop up stores and skip the retail markups.

  • True Quality - We’ve leveraged our unique personal relationships to partner directly with several leading fabric and clothing manufacturers, who for decades have made hand-produced luxury products. They have produced clothes for many well-known luxury brands around the world. So we are confident in the quality of our timeless pieces.

 ABOUT ME

My name is Lotte and I am the founder and designer of Atelier Charlie. After finishing my studies at ArtEZ Fashion Design in Arnhem, the Netherlands, I gained work experience in different companies in Paris, France and in the Netherlands. A never-ending interest in clothes and the way people dress, a passion for design, textiles and colors, together with a big support from my inspiring friends and family, made me start working on this project.

Risks and challenges

Having been responsible for the design, development and production of several clothing collections for different high end brands for more than 10 years, we are very used to working to deadlines and understand the importance of supplying the finished product on time, meeting our high-quality standards.

We also only partnered with the best manufacturers in the industry who we know for years already and all production lines are prepared way in advance.

Although certain things like custom delays are difficult to predict we made sure our schedule allows for delays and unforeseen circumstances.

In any case we'll make sure to update you frequently about our progress!
Thanks for your support!
