Mary Beth Larkin's Story
[IN]LARKIN revolutionizes the activewear industry by offering a fashion brand that ends the fashion-conscious woman’s relentless search for comfortable versatile clothing that doesn’t sacrifice the glamour, beauty and quality that defines them, and is simply unavailable from other popular activewear brands.
[IN]LARKIN’s mission is to own and dominate an entirely new fashion market segment it has coined “athglamour” that merges the comfort of activewear with the tailored edge of upscale glamour.
Everything is the same these days: mass-produced casual wear, and nothing seems special anymore. I want to get back to the craft—when styles were unique and specialness mattered. I want women to make chic look easy whenever they put me on.
[IN]LARKIN styles feature comfortable cuts, easy materials, and brand consistency. Mary Beth chose Santa Barbara to inspire the imaginations of women worldwide with a brand that evokes the resort destination and its unique established chic. Mary Beth will be debuting her new line September 2017.
