BD_FATHERS DAY August 14, 2013



Here at Studio Arrc, we don't like to be cliche, and we don't use the term 'stereotype' loosely.... However, we understand that purchasing the perfect gift for the men in our lives is difficult at best, so we'll allow a little pigeon-holing this Fathers Day to keep you covered!

Studio Arrc welcomes back stylist Caroline Hewson to give us a taste of what's hot on the market. From the Sport Mad to the Vino Aficionado, you will be set to impress this September 1st.
