GET TO KNOW: ARCS
The core ethos of ARCS is to create crafted product, built for longevity and with minimal impact on the planet. Their belief is to create a fully modular clothing and accessories wardrobe, where every piece can be rotated dependent on need or occasion.Their development process is a finely tuned balance between product and purpose, not wilfully creating something for the sake of it - every item holds a place.Driven by a wish to marry technicality with fashion. Bridging the gap between streetwear and intricate tailoring, ARCS seeks to create a new uniform for modern living.
ARCS is an accessories and apparel brand established in 2019 by Alice Carvill. ARCS was created from a frustration by the lack of accessories that provided functionality, were consciously made and thoughtfully designed. After 2 years of thorough development, ARCS showed their first collection in 2021. Consisting of a capsule bag collection which they have been improving and building upon ever since. Building upon ARCS’ core philosophies, for AW23 they have introduced clothing into the mix. With a focus on modularity and functionality, they build on their commitment to set the bar for providing a fully capsule, consciously made wardrobe,
Ranges consist of a core collection, slowly and meticulously crafted, and assessed every season to ensure that each piece is executing every need it was created for. Each season they build upon their core: growing their range of capsule pieces with new fabric innovations, adding items that fulfil new purposes, and expanding their trims library to continue their philosophy of providing a fully modular, consciously made and innovately designed wardrobe. Their narrative is largely based around uniform, and provides inspiration season upon season. They dissect historic ‘uniform’ wardrobe pieces and moderise: reinventing to update their fabrics, functionality and introduce to our ethical and design philosophies.
