The brands’ mission is to ‘transform the wearer into an undeniable authority.’ The locally produced, innovative garments fuel expression in its purest form.
As with all brands, ATHRTY started with a dream. Okky Sanyoto, one of the co-founders, pitched his plan and dream to his partner, brother, mother and sister in law. All of these people combined their talents and forces, thus, ATHRTY was born. As one can imagine, the bond of family runs within the brand. This familial bond especially shows at the brands pop-up stores, where it is like walking into an aesthetically pure living room, stocked with garments perfected with flowy fabrics, eye catching red and silver details.
Community plays a large role in Amsterdam. Within the capital of the Netherlands, events, stores and brands constantly drive the local community closer together. ATHRTY and its community are made synonymous though the values that the name stands for. In its first year, the Amsterdam label has thrived due to its international mindset, with travel and the big city in mind.
