Carthage makes you wonder, dream and explore. It carries a timeless elegance in a name that invokes a heritage of legends and mystery. It's classic but fresh, rich and subtle, making it a wonderful departure for a true fashion treat. Hence our collection strives to capture the refinement of the Mediterranean, the empire of the elephants, a summer blue, a clear white, tinges of warm colors and the playful surprises that characterize our aesthetic.

Armistice Ambergris

Two-tone blazer in sand brown cotton and denim. Woven leather buttons and viscose lining.

Our two-tone Armistice blazers are made in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The Artmistice Ambergris is made of a light camel colored cotton and denim with reddish brown leather buttons and we chose to do the lining in viscose. A trademark "Liberty, Wisdom, Beauty" label is stitched on the right centre piece of the blazer.

Hannibal

Sketch of Hannibal's war elephant crossing the Alps. Light melange t-shirt in cream.

The sketch of Hannibal's war elephant crossing the Alps started the artistic direction of the collection. The sketchy aesthetic was an experiment, but we liked it so much that we made it into the final designs of our Hannibal and Hanno the Explorer work.

The Classic: Midnight

Lightweight summer Guy Vernes logo t-shirt in midnight. Limited print.

Shorts

Chino shorts in sand/brown with special golf set printed lining. Clean, elegant design with slit back pockets and concealed fly.

Hanno the Explorer

Sketches of the navigation tools of the great king and explorer of Carthage, Hanno. Light summer t-shirt in mint/grey melange.

Hanno was a famous king of Carthage and a renoun explorer of the seas. As an explorer, Hanno was guided by meridians and navigation lines, so we thought it would be cool to tell his story by closing up on his exploration tools and let simple geometrical (vertical) lines navigate our artwork.

Marin Authentique

Guy Vernes x Flybird handmade leather/canvas shopper with front envelope pocket

Bridle

Unisex leather and woven cotton bracelet.

To accessorize the look, we created a small set of cotton and leather unisex bracelets in the collection's color palet. The design and execution is very simple, yet interesting and easy to carry.

Armistice Envoy

Two-tone cotton blazer in deep mint and brown accents. Woven leather buttons and viscose lining.

Our two-tone Armistice blazers are made in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The Artmistice Ambergris is made of a light camel colored cotton and denim with reddish brown leather buttons and we chose to do the lining in viscose. A trademark "Liberty, Wisdom, Beauty" label is stitched on the right centre piece of the blazer.

Mediterranean

Blue heather V-neck t-shirt with stitched linnen label

Shorts

Our chino shorts have a simplistic, easy-to-wear exterior made of twill cotton. We made sure to use fabric that was the exact same color on both sides, so you can fold the ends without a color or quality difference. Our treat is in the lining, where we used a playful golf-set pattern in a sparkling blue. It's those touches that put a smile on our face and hopefully you'll enjoy it as much.

Carthage is not only a story of a lost empire, it is a monument of Mediterranean elegance brought to the streets. It's imperious, of course, because an indy label will never be heard if it's shy or timid, but as a fashion line it's founded upon its subtlety. Carthage translates a story of a North-African city turned empire, but like its fabric, it's light and modern. It's a compact piece of work, to be discovered and enjoyed.
