"Effortless Elegance" sounds like a catchy phrase, but I think it goes further than that. It’s the feeling evoked by handmade things of suitable quality, which for some reason become unique. I want to talk about ATP Atelier and the sleek lines of their leather goods, in which we find a mixture of contemporary Scandinavian design and Italian craftsmanship in every single detail.
Jonas Clason and Maj-La Pizzelli (founders) use high-quality vegetable tanned leathers to make all their products and assure to offer long-lasting pieces. Their austere look is perfect for those who seek minimalism and simplicity, without jeopardizing comfort. An interesting fact is they sell their products directly on their online store and other concept boutiques around the world.
It's funny because I never imagined that I would be writing about this brand and some sandals I bought back in the summer of 2015. I have to be honest; I still have them in my closet, and of course I still wear them. The reason is simple; Their pieces are timeless and go beyond trends and also keep a clean aesthetic. I can see the spirit of a brand with a huge desire to teach us that less is more.
