Artistic Revolution in Time Showroom

“We had a blast creating this collection of colorful, unique pieces with a hint of bohemian rhapsody.” – Meredith Straus, Artistic Revolution in Time.
A pattern emerges at trade shows: Lace. Bow. Bodysuit. Lace. Bow. Bodysuit. Lace… It’s exhausting and after a few hours, brands, booths and garments blend together.
The experience leaves many wondering, “Where has all the color and excitement gone?”
If you were at CURVENY earlier this year, you might have turned a corner and faced a booth brimming with color and vibrancy — Artistic Revolution in Time (A.R.T.).
I spent a few minutes at the booth and made a mental note to explore more. It took a few months, but I had the opportunity to visit their showroom here in New York City to see the brand’s Spring 2016 collection – “Over the Rainbow.”
Walking into the A.R.T. Showroom, your eyes lock onto a rack crackling with excitement. Multi-colored fringes, paint splatters, neons and a French Fry appliqué screaming in vibrant mustard yellows and juicy ketchup red pulled at my eyes and didn’t let go.

“The collection is inspired by iconic silhouettes, fabrics and prints. We are constantly inspired by our artsy lifestyle and always on the quest for a fun party,” explained Meredith Straus, the brand’s senior designer. “We had a blast creating this collection of colorful, unique pieces with a hint of bohemian rhapsody.”
The rack showed off Over the Rainbow’s six ranges: Flower Child, Paint Party, Snack Attack, Sugar Baby, Rainbow Bright, and Color Crush. Each range deftly offers fans of the brand a great mix of intimates and daywear pieces (camis, skirts and more).
Compared to the rest, Flower Child is the most subdued of the bunch, but that is not a criticism. A.R.T. offers a lovely embellished bralette and matching hipster along with an Embellished Crochet Tunic, Seamless Cami and bike short within Flower Child.
Prepare yourself for an 80s flashback – Rainbow Bright channels all the vibrancy and whimsy of A.R.T. into its pieces for this range. One of the stand-outs in this collection is the Rainbow Fringe Bralette and Chiffon Bloomer that I’m sure is going to hit more than a few Rainbow Brite fans right in the feels.
To me, the Artistic Revolution in Time Spring 2016 collection is such a welcome addition to the lingerie world. Meredith noted that “Paint Party” and the “Snack Attack” collection have been the biggest hits along with the jeweled long-line bra and fringed chiffon bralette.
