London-based bag label ARCS has returned with its second collection, once again showcasing its in-house fabrications and “slow-made” approach to production. The collection also introduces two new styles alongside ARCS’ signature silhouettes, with each bag arriving in either recycled polyester or the “ARCS Twill” recycled handwoven fabric.
The two new bags introduced for Fall/Winter 2022 are the “Little Hey” sling and the “Sharp Crossbody Bag.” These styles join others including the “Hey” sling bag, “Kapha” crossbody and “Minute” neck pouch, all of which are available in three colors including “Black,” “Moss” and “Cub.” The sustainable ethos of ARCS continues onto custom trims, piece-dyeing techniques and handwoven fabrics, all of which continue the brand’s focus on reducing waste.
Launching the collection, the ARCS team said:
“Whilst being as conscientious as possible, my main vision derives design cues from areas like hiking, trail and the outdoors, executing each product with minimalism and elevating it to another level through unique trims and fabrications. This season, I feel, is a huge step forward for the brand in marrying all these things together and cementing our identity in this landscape.”
Take a look through the ARCS FW22 lookbook in the gallery above, and expect the pieces to arrive for pre-order via the ARCS web store later this year.
