Atode - Marseille, France
Buy Less, Buy Better is ATODE's motto & mission. ATODE is a high end fashion brand for modern and ethically conscious women. ATODE design chic and minimalist pieces using only natural fabrics for women who want to combine fashion and sustainability, Made in France.
ATODE, meaning Attention To Detail, create garments that combine style, quality & sustainability. Minimalist, timeless and chic; each garment has been carefully designed, each piece is unique with specific details, made to last season after season.
The collections are made by 3 seamstresses in France in limited edition.
Founder, Caroline Zalesky, launched ATODE in September 2015. After graduating with a Masters in Business & working 4 years as a Marketing Manager at Galleries Lafayette in Marseille, Caroline Zalesky released her own label offering her conception of fashion; slow fashion, consuming less but better.
The brand values are directly associated to Caroline's own experience whereby modern fashion brands designing stylish ethical and sustainable clothes are almost impossible to find. Caroline designs her collections mindfully, selecting only sustainable fabrics and accessories. She surrounds herself with the best professional seamstresses to bring her creations to life.
ATODE’s purpose is to offer a high end wardrobe, using exceptional & only natural materials & fabrics (wool, silk, cotton & linen), handmade in France from three carefully chosen workshops in Marseille who take particular care to the finishing right down to hems being sown by hand.
ATODE's point of difference is using flannel wools (typically used for men's suits) to create elegant and crease-resistant women clothes that can be worn all day and night long.
