London based Creative Directors Marco Capaldo and Kikka Cavenati met studying fashion at the famous Istituto Marangoni. After time spent working under the tutelage of Christian Louboutin and graduating with accolades including Best Collection, the pair decided to launch 16ARLINGTON to create the perfect fusion of their respective styles and tastes.
Kikka has a minimalistic, Scaninavian approach to ready-to-wear, whilst Marco is more couture-focused and brings a richly embellished, European flair to his designs.
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 and a collection that is a lot of fun.
