Frenke Coat

Let`s admit it! When it comes to the modern wardrobe for conscious women, it tends to consist of neutral colors. We at ARV love the clothes you can wear over and over again, all year around - but sometimes we need to color our world.

 

That is why we made Frenke Coat in a bold color. A statement coat, which comes in a very limited edition, perfect for the breezy summer days. 

 

Frenke Coat

Inspired by the kimono, Frenke Coat is elegantly casual with her clean yet soft lines. She is made of a lightweight viscose fabric that drapes nicely around your body. You can wear her loose or cinched at the waist with the belt.

If you`re not comfortable wearing bold colors, we have Frenke Coat available in black - you can always color your world with flowers!

Crispy, yet soft cotton became a natural fabric to introduce in our new collection, and as we aim to design clothes that span seasons we looked for a cotton fabric that would still be wearable in the fall. 

In our search for the ultimate cotton fabric to help shape the designs we had in mind, we found a white cotton fabric with elegant light blue stripes, and it was a perfect match.

Tora Shirt                                 After months of testing and adjusting to get the perfect fit, we now introduce to you Tora Shirt and Nanna Top, two cotton styles that can be included in your basic wardrobe.

 

Tora Shirt

 

 

 

Tora Shirt is a classic cotton shirt with an oversized fit, easy to style. Button her up for a office-appropriate look together with a skirt or trousers, or roll up her sleeves and unbutton her at the top for a more relaxed look. Either way, we think she will become one of the go-to items in your wardrobe.

When designing Nanna Top we wanted to be more fashion forward, but stay true to our timeless simplicity.  

Nanna Top

Nanna Top has clean lines at the front that accentuates the neck. The belt cinched in the waist highlights your waist and gives you a feminine look. 

 

Nanna Top

The belt is part of creating identity to Nanna Top. You can wear the belt in several different ways, or drop the belt for a more boxy look.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

Love Dress blog arv stories

When ARV was founded back in 2014, we had a vision to create coats made of high quality Italian wool. Our first collections contained exactly that and coats have defined us ever since. Though coats are close to our hearts, we have started on a journey where we, one day, would like to offer a complete wardrobe to the conscious woman. 

 

Love Dress



 

Love Dress was first introduced in our SS16 collection, and soon became a favorite among our customers. The idea behind Love, pronounced [lʊəveə], was to design a dress that has the elements of a coat, but still functions as a dress. 

 

 

 

   

Love Dress

She can be worn loose or cinched at the waist with the belt. Her lightweight fabric, made of 100% rayon, wraps your body in comfort.

            

Love Dress

Although Love Dress is included in our SS17 collection, she is a dress that spans seasons. With her soft lines, elegant simplicity and feminine balance, we believe Love will add a touch of refinement to your wardrobe. She is a dress you can wear over and over again. 

 

Love Dress

At ARV we believe the customers have the right to know what their product costs to make.

 

In the illustration below you can see the true costs of making the Love Dress, and the price at which ARV now offers it to you compared to traditional retail stores. By saying "no" to retail stores and only selling Love Dress through our webshop we can sell her for a lower price. 

 

The difference between actual cost and ARV price is not all profit, it also covers our daily expenses as a business.  
Thank you for being a part of the journey!
