Fashion is art, so why can’t art become fashion? A&R New York is a fusion of the gorgeous gallery pieces they admire with the luxury handbags that they crave. Partnering with local artists, A&R transforms hand-painted, one-of-a-kind canvases into high-end purses that are wearable day and night. Every bag is just as unique as the one who wears it.
A&R’s Exotic Skin collection is combatting fashion waste by reusing scraps that would otherwise be discarded. There are countless handbag designers on the market, so A&R isn’t here to add to the noise. They’re here to fill the void and find new ways to inspire, connect, and create. They are devoted to sourcing sustainable fabrics and working with local artisans whenever possible to create a better future for fashion today and tomorrow.
