Transatlanticmode got its start in 2017, when two Americans living in Cologne, Germany sat down to talk style and realized that so much of our fashion lives and who we are have been shaped by our lives spent between two worlds. We launched transatlanticmode to capture what that feels like. When it’s not Airplane Mode for us, we’re on a mission to find style that matches who we are. We explore the continent to find fashion that lasts, nothing fast. We prefer boutiques to too cheap. And we believe in timeless style -- there’s no such thing as needing to “look your age.”
Work With Us
At transatlanticmode, we love working with brands but we only work with brands we love. That means you can be sure if we’re writing about something on this site, it’s a favorite of ours. Most of the time, we are writing about things of our own initiative but if we’ve been paid to write about it, we’ll let you know (#sponsored). If you’re a brand and think we’d make a good fit, contact us at email@example.com.
Sabrina was initially influenced by Kelly Bundy's early vintage and thrift ensembles on "Married with Children" and Lisa Bonet's quirky style in the '80s and then learned to master the art of bold, clashing prints as a teen. She has worked for Seventeen.com, ELLE.com and has been a contributing writer to NYLON, hintmag.com and Messy Nessy Chic. Sabrina appreciates bright color, big cities, risk takers, outrageous accessories, serendipitous shopping finds, and flea markets. Her favorite place in the world is 40° 43' 50.1960'' N and 73° 56' 6.8712'' W.
Courtney’s interest in fashion arrived later in life, once she realized that women who love books and sports (like her) can also be stylish. Inspired initially by Bjork’s nonchalant attitude while wearing the controversial Oscars swan, Courtney adopted a simple Scandinavian aesthetic, with clean lines and traces of femininity in neutral colors. She’s written about design and culture for magazines like Paper, Sleek and Elle.com, covered Fashion Weeks for the DHL Exported fashion incubator program and has worked as a freelance copywriter for adidas. Setting foot in the Atlantic is her annual healing ritual.
