When it comes to fashion, 2022 is already getting stronger. The name of the game is the name of the smooth and simple game when the style game can be nailed in the new year, starting from joggers effortlessly to figure-flattering bodysuit. Two things that the newly launched brand ARRA is doing right.
Created by designer Christine Ara, formerly with Ralph Lauren and Donna Karan, ARRA creates beautiful clothing using high quality and eco-conscious luxury fabrics. Made in NYC, each piece is ideal for everyday.
“My inspiration for this collection comes from organic, flowing shapes in everyday nature, and I’m influenced by modern art and architecture,” said Arra, who earned a BFA in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology. “While draping, I create designs with subtle details that are worn seamlessly and effortlessly.”
After years of working with NYC’s top designers, ARRA has recognized a growing need in the industry for environmentally-conscious material sourcing and responsible business practice. And so the brand named after him was born.
“We want the ARRA woman to be able to wear these pieces to work, wear to dinner or just be casual, depending on how she styles with her existing outfit,” she told me. “The line was created out of a desire to responsibly dedicate raw materials, fabrics and quality textiles, while adhering to our principles of fair and responsible business practice.”
ARRA manufactures all of its clothing locally in New York City. Most packaging originates from recycled materials, printed with eco-friendly algae ink, and can be reused and recycled.
Some of my favorite pieces from the collection include Geo Top, a simple fit, sleeveless tee, an asymmetrical neckline shape, pleated armhole, and side coverage detail. Pairing it with slack lounge pants, it quickly became my favorite work-from-home outfit.
Prices range from $ 225 to 25 525. See the complete capsule collection at christinearra.com.
