‘Henri’ is crafted with the Arc & Bow girl’s fearless spirit in mind. These pieces feature bold, unmodulated autumn tones and timeless styles crafted by our artisans in India with pure organic cotton sateen, non AZO dyes and fair-trade standards.

Influenced by the greatest colourist of the 20th Century, Henri Matisse, our new collection draws on Matisse’s philosophy to seek the strongest colour effect possible.

‘Henri’ belongs to all women, created to fit a myriad of different shapes and sizes within four concise styles. The human figure is as central to our design process as to Matisse’s life work.

Our style is an, often accidental, expression of our creativity. In the words of our muse, ‘creativity takes courage’.

“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject-matter, an art which could be for every mental worker, for the businessman as well as the man of letters, for example, a soothing, calming influence on the mind, something like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue."
