Arcouture: “Dresses to Live in”
Arcouture is a fashion atelier that designs wearable pieces of architecture with a modest, almost vintage panache, namely;” Dresses to live in”.
The holistic definition of Architecture is that it encompasses the spectrum of everything that exudes order, anything that contains, enrobes and adorns our being. In that sense what we wear is the most primal form of all of architecture. The body being the quintessential module for the architecture of attire.
The Arcouture Aesthetic
Behind the scenes we are incessantly experimenting with unprecedented material/design accords; reinventing vintage forms of attire that amplify the grace of the human body, whilst using material combinations and ensembles that challenge the contemporary culturally prescribed sense of beauty, in addition to striking the- often- dismissed note of modesty which is core to the aesthetic standards we opt to achieve.
All pieces conceived & handcrafted in dubai
