ARTURRO’s women’s resort collection comprised colorful prints with sexy cuts on elegant flowing dresses and a selection of shorts for the menswear. The man behind the brand, Abednego Sinambela, explained that his new resort collection was inspired by Bali’s rich flora and fauna, adopting their bright colors, which resulted in large print patterns.
Aside from the resort wear, ARTURRO also featured a women's cocktail collection that emphasized laces and floral prints. The brand's male cocktail collection stole the show, combining a formal look with a daring use of floral prints. ARTURRO combined various materials such as linen and cotton and embroidered fabrics, which gave the sense of sensuality, style and island-chic.
