In Greek: ἄρθρον(árthron) = “joint”, and πούς(pous) = “leg”, together forming “jointed leg” is a fashion label that “joins” creatives to “walk” together in building a unique brand aesthetics.
ARTHROPODA, or short ATRP is an Amsterdam based fashion label, focusing on knitwear design with contemporary twist. The brand mixes influences from art and nature into a unique vision for strong and outstanding woman.
Our vision is to build a wardrobe instead of renewing it. Layering, effortless but also statement pieces we are creating a conceptual, slow fashion that cannot be trend listed.
The latest ATRP20 collection is named “Pieces” and it is inspired by geometric shapes, fluid patterns and lines, just like the shapes of life with ups and downs, dark and bright. Bits and pieces are coming together or breaking apart. Lines of a trajectory are heading with a clear direction or moving to a complete chaos.
Todor Stojanov, originally from North Macedonia and recently based in Amsterdam, is a designer and founder of the fashion label ARTHROPODA.
With educational background in textile engineering and fashion design from The Fashion Design Institute of DongHua University in Shanghai, China, he has been working for several international fashion brands in China, Spain and The Netherlands.
All the fashion knowledge, experience and creative spirit resulted with creating of a fashion label inspired by nature and art and focussing on contemporary design and sustainability.
