16ARLINGTON is the cult London label questioning the idea of glamour with an infectious eccentricity. Brought to life by design duo and real-life couple, Marco Capaldo & Federica Cavenati. Hailed by British Vogue as the cool girl’s go-to for ‘conversation-starting’ evening-wear, 16Arlington proposes a maximalist fashion language that expertly, deliciously negotiates the boundaries of trash, as well as a deeply accomplished skill for pattern cutting and hand-embroidery.

Exploring subversion, and the harmony in disharmonies, collections are executed with a distinct handwriting: tightly twisted leather bodices, inches of marabou trim, sculptured fil-coupé organza, razor-sharp tailoring and signature sequins. Capaldo and Cavenati’s encyclopedia of opulence draws from their shared love of fearless women and provocation.
