Founded in 2014, Axel Arigato is a contemporary fashion brand injected with counter-cultural references.Before launching Axel Arigato, the founders saw a gap in the market for an affordable footwear brand with a couture quality. By forgoing traditional channels and engaging with customers directly, Axel Arigato has made their mark in the industry as the high-end footwear brand with an affordable price tag. With the “drop of the week” - concept, the brand is able to sidestep traditional seasonal collections, delivering weekly releases to keep a neoteric flow of products.
Axel Arigato opened its first flagship store in Soho, London in September 2016. The store, which was designed by acclaimed architect Christian Halleröd, adheres to Axel Arigato’s minimalist aesthetics. The store opening marks the start of a new chapter for the brand.
