Tried & True: Kelly Lane

We <3 Kelly Lane Designs!

Part six of Arcadia's bestseller series features Kelly Lane Designs, created a stone's throw away in Pittsburgh, PA.  After being gifted a sewing machine from her husband in 2005, Kelly eagerly created her first vibrantly colorful collection.  She incorporates sustainable fabrics and the collections are always "ethically produced by a family-run business in New York’s garment district. The result is limited run, high-quality clothing with a conscience."

We've got many great fall & holiday pieces from Kelly in.  But hurry - they won't be on our racks for long!  Don't forget about last season's best-selling Asteroid Dress.

Tried & True: Stewart + Brown

Behold part five of our series focusing on Arcadia's best selling lines.  Stewart + Brown launched in 2002 by partners Karen Stewart and Howard Brown and were pioneers for the sustainable fashion movement.  Inspired by nature and a respect for taking the bare minimum from the Earth, the extensive collection boats luxurious winter knits, super comfortable jersey lounge wear, and a plethora of dress styles for any occasion.  To top it all off, they also donate a potion of profits to non-governmental environmental and social welfare organizations.

The epic duo: Karen & Howard

We've got lots of great Stewart+Brown pieces in for this fall/winter season.  Try on the Waffle Coat Sweater, our best-selling Jordie Leggings and the coziest Cowl Tunic Sweatshirt
