After Marco and Kikka met at University, the London based pair, who are both originally from Italy, decided to launch 16ARLINGTON to create the perfect fusion of their respective styles and tastes. Kikka has a minimalistic, Scandinavian approach to ready-to-wear, while Marco is more couture focused and brings a heavily embellished, European flair to their designs. 16ARLINGTON brings together the perfect fusion of their respective styles and tastes. The result is a brand with a high-octane aesthetic and a strong DNA: minimalism meets maximalism; fluidity meets frivolity. Expect a high glamour story, decadent detail, drama vs minimalism, expert tailoring and a rough-around-the-edges appreciation of good fun.
