At Home With Lara Pia Arrobio: LPA's Creative Director and IDGAF Cool Girl
Kick back with LPA’s “Dolce & Gabbana meets Supreme” motto on a Matt Abad-editorial.
Break down LPA’s initials and you have Lara Pia Arrobio – the designer and creative director behind the eponymous line that’s a “sexy badass girl” reincarnate.
How LPA came to be is Arrobio’s own background in the industry. Eight months prior, Revolve Clothing reached out with a pitch that would become LPA and a “dream collection” – a blur between ’70s sex appeal and men’s skate brands.
Take one look at LPA’s lookbook and Arrobio’s message stands out – she calls it “Dolce & Gabbana meets Supreme.” We call it vintage-romance meets streetwear. There’s leopard print on romantic silk slips and there’s urban-grunge on oversized drape sweatshirts. So is she a Supreme groupie?
“If I answer that question, the comments section in this post is going to have a field day.”
Models are cast on Instagram – the good old Lotta Volkova method – and photos aren’t re-touched because “the content we are creating is honestly really god damn good.” The collection is big among the it-crowd including Emily Ratajkowski, Lena Dunham and Erin Wasson – not to mention a co-sign by OFF-WHITE’s Virgil Abloh.
