From founder and creative director Irene Roth comes artica-arbox, the gender-fluid ready-to-wear line founded in 2018 with former Yeezy CEO Cristiano Minchio. Adopting her two children’s superhero names (Artica and Arbox), the unisex brand made its debut in Paris with its Spring-Summer 2019 collection, presenting a line of luxury streetwear made in Italy to uphold craftmanship and quality.
Based in Los Angeles, artica-arbox is a reflection of the current dialogue on non-binary gender identities. Roth, a former film industry marketer, set out to create a brand that offered unconstrained, genreless freedom of expression and can be incorporated with ease into pre-existing wardrobes. Having spent five years in conceptualization and development, a meeting with Minchio at a factory in Florence culminated into the innovative collection that is at once experimental and wearable.
