However, there’s a personal matter that will be hard for me to ignore when I introduce you to the Arxé girl, and it’s because I’ve been lucky enough to witness its development from birth ’til its conformation as a solid idea to dress women that resemble and inspire her: girls with a strong personality and an individual voice speaking for them, while their appreciation for the delicacy of life makes them, without a doubt, very feminine.
Arxé is the creation of Laia Navalón Arxé, a girl whom I have the pleasure of calling my friend for more than a decade and whose friendship was consolidated in New York a few years ago, when we’re still living in continents separated by an ocean and when my plans of living in Barcelona were null. It will be curious, then, that a few years later we found ourselves living in the same city, sharing experiences and tastes in a scenario where good dressing is scarce, as if that New Yorker inspiration would have impregnated in us and we would have decided to not look back since then.
Because when I think of Arxé, I think of that girl pulled out from the glossy pages of a magazine, who takes enough time to apply her lipstick with agility and does not give a minute to think about what people think of her, working to achieve her dreams and hopefully inspiring others in the way, at the same time she arrives fashionably late to a dinner with a huge smile, ’cause she knows life is lightweight and there’s always a tomorrow.
