ATIKA Studio is an in-house brand that began in October 2018. The creators of REMIX by ATIKA wanted to bring their reworked element to more classic pieces of vintage. Each range consists of unique hand-made pieces for a limited time (once they’re gone, they’re gone!)Read More
ATIKA Studio is our capsule collection of limited edition pieces, reworked vintage garments and fabrics. All pieces are handmade in our Studio at 55 - 59 Hanbury Street and are now available in store.Read More
It’s our second part in our series of “You’re more than your day job.” We started this project due to us working with so many talented and hard working people. We’re excited about introducing members of our team, their talents and side hustles.
Next up is Bex! She’s our eCommerce and Marketing Manger here in store. Bex is also the founder of Babygirl Studio, a bespoke hand-painted clothing brand that we have here at ATIKA. Babygirl was founded in 2017 after an influencer asked Bex to make a hand-painted vintage jacket for her for London Fashion Week. The rest is history!Read More
When I was younger, being a boy and being into fashion caused people to immediately label you as gay (for me, it was obviously true), but it would always be said as a negative. But guess what, times have changed!
Whilst there were openly queer designers of the past such as Thierry Mugler, Gianni Versace and Hubert De Givenchy, the uprising in explicit, unapologetic and innovative queer designers has risen to amazing new heights.Read More
I created a Pride playlist for ATIKA with the intention to embody what pride is - complete inclusivity, rebellion and fun!
I couldn’t help but make something which is 7 hours and 34 minutes long (and counting.) Mainly because of the breadth of artistry that people of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies have made. There’s everything on there, you’ve got your classic Kylie bangers as well as more underground emerging artists such as Le1f and Angel-Ho.Read More
Let’s take a minute to talk about Jenny Holzer...
Whether you are familiar with her name or not, you will most likely have come across some of her work. Especially her neons!
Currently a fixture in the ARTIST ROOMS at TATE MODERN until 7th July. So if you haven’t already been, you better go before the exhibition comes to an end.
With her feminist approach to important messages, the work is powerful and visually pleasing in one fell swoop.Read More
Pride is here and this year we’re doing something extra special to celebrate an amazing cause. We’re partnering with akt charity, a charity that focuses on LGBTQ+ youth on a national level. For the month of July (London pride is on the 6th of July) we at ATIKA, are going to be home to a rail of merchandise straight from akt. We will be selling their tees and totes and are super excited to be working with a charity that is doing something so important.Read More
I like football shirts because they are techy, fun and exotic.
Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Kappa, Puma. Since the 1980’s football shirts (kit, jersey) have been at the vanguard of sports product design. Fast drying fabrics, materials that you can’t grab a hold of or that stretch and snap back (Italian defenders take note,) cooling features. It's techwear, isn’t it?Read More
It’s festival season and here at ATIKA we wanted to give you some outfit inspiration; throughout the years, fashion has always been at the centre of festivals. Whether you want to dress head-to-toe in sequins or in your grandad’s tracksuit, a festival is the place to do it without judgement.Read More
