“Driven by our passion, we don’t just make denim; we breathe denim.” That’s how Atlantic Mills introduces itself. The mill focuses on fabric innovation and sustainable production methods. They particularly have strong men's collections that often feature heritage and vintage styles, so it’s no coincidence that Atlantic Mills has one of the world’s largest selvedge collections. For that same reason, the mill welcomed working with Marius: “He understands the history of denim, while he also desires to reinvent it for the 21st century man.”
After completing internships at Alexander McQueen and Raf Simons, Marius Op’t Eynde launched his London-based menswear brand MariusPetrus in 2012. His designs are characterised by graphic shapes, bold colours and architectural prints. Using high-tech materials, he blends men’s fashion heritage with a contemporary signature. Op’t Eynde has the reputation of being one of the industry’s ‘best kept secrets’.
