Arthur Arbesser's Playful Rigour
This collection was the designer's most reassured so far: conceptual, yet full of interesting pieces.
Arthur Arbesser has a fascination for uniforms, which harks back to his Viennese roots and memories of his family. This explains the gentle strictness and covertly sexy tone of his work.
The collection he showed today — very strict, very playful and very kinky, with its flimsy nylons and equestrian booties — was his most reassured so far: conceptual, yet full of interesting pieces such as the knits and the sailor jackets. There's ample room for growth from here onwards.
