Emily Ratajkowski, Kendall Jenner, and the Hadid sisters are just a few members of the fashion elite that can be seen wearing Pia Arrobio’s silky slip dresses, linen bra tops, and basic bodysuits – partly because they’re her friends, but mostly because her designs nail the effortlessly laid-back look they all strive to embody.
An acronym for her full name (Lara Pia Arrobio), Arrobio created LPA after hustling her way from waitressing and blogging to a design gig at Reformation. She spoke with us about how Bulletproof coffee, kisses from her dog, and (almost) 7 hours of sleep fuel her success.
