London-based accessories label ARCS has returned for Spring/Summer 2023, with a focus on modularity and functionality for the new collection. All of the items also build on the brand's commitment to using sustainable materials and processes.
The collection features items ranging from the larger HEY Sling Bag and Club Crossbody to the smaller Ghosting Pouch, while also introducing a new "Sea" material. Produced using a blend of polyester and nylon, the warp and weft colors in the yarn produce iridescent sheen. ARCS also moves into patchwork constructions for the first time with this collection, using leftover material to produce the Little HEY Crossbody Bag. All of the items are finished with a
recycled polyester lining, vegan leather detailing and an engraved buckle.
Launching the collection, ARCS director Alice Carvill-White said:
"Finishing off the Spring/Summer ‘23 range, I feel like I'm finally getting settled with the brand in regards to who we are and what we have to offer, as well as being excited about the future direction of where ARCS goes. I’m bag obsessive and I think bringing an element of modularity to luggage is as important as the clothing I wear on a day-to-day basis; I wear each shape on rotation for different reasons and I want other people to realise this."
Take a look through ARCS' SS23 collection in the gallery above. The items will release through the ARCS web store and select retailers.
