Atlantique Ascoli launched her eponymous fashion line in 2013, to breathe life into the thought of “the ease of an interchangeable module” and to mine her personal collections of Victorian blouses for inspiration. Her mother, fashion designer and one-time model for Givenchy, Emmanuelle, saw fashion changing from haute couture to prêt-à-porter. In the same way, Atlantique pursues an architectural sensibility in making her tailored cuts to create ease for modern women. Her crisp cotton and linen shirtings bring a new graphic perception to shape, texture, and volume, especially in the way that her clothes hang organically on the body. She gains inspiration from the philosophy of Charlotte Perriand, and holds the belief that better design for all can transcend the strictures of the traditional roles of women in society.
Atlantique fuses the feminine allure of a Parisian girl with her easygoing personal taste, working for women of all ages to dress effortlessly, but with a touch of polish.
