The Array's signature shirt was one of the earliest designs they worked on, as they believe the classic shirt is a core foundation piece in any woman's wardrobe. In their interview series many women cited the chest gaps on their shirt plackets as an unwarranted distraction while they were at work. The signature tab closure detail was invented as a solution to this problem, with the discrete placement of any extra button closure on the chest level of the shirt placket. This shirt is made of hammered silk, a beautiful textured silk that makes natural creases look more forgiving.
Each piece of The Array are as beautiful as they are functional, each one thoughtfully designed and considered, from fabric to the final detail.
Yvonne Lim and Shaonan Xu, two MA Fashion graduates from the Royal College of Art, inspired by the evolving landscape of women’s workwear, decided to create a brand that’s dedicated to the working women of today.
With simplicity and functionality in mind, The Array provides women with a selection of workwear classics and new essentials. Empowering one woman at a time with their unique designs.
