Horses Atelier was founded in 2012 by best friends and novelists Claudia Dey and Heidi Sopinka with the philosophy of making pieces based on the values they hold in everyday life - utility, beauty, wildness, and endurance. The label is known for its iconic sillhouettes and feminized workwear — trusted pieces that are artful and easy with an impeccable fit and feel.

Horses works with natural fabrics sourced from family-owned mills in Italy and Japan, and creates custom colours and prints. Everything is sewn a mile from their Toronto studio. Their master seamstress grandmothers inspired in them an old-world attention to detail, and the notion that a timeless piece is both the past and the future. The spare and storied aesthetic of Horses Atelier comes from the designers’ travels across islands, deserts, and Canada’s north.

Profiled in Vogue, worn by Feist, Jerry Hall, and Georgia May Jagger, and featured on HBO's Girls, their muse is the woman who in dressing herself knows herself.
