Axel Arigato, the story

max-albin-axel-arigato

The idea of Axel Arigato started with us just questioning how and why you make things. The way we work is not traditional and I think that’s one of the reasons why people enter our brand.” – Max Svardh, Creative Director for Axel Arigato

Axel Arigato is a contemporary fashion brand injected with counter-cultural references. From the beginning, Axel Arigato has always been about showcasing the imagery the brand was started with and channeling it through a visual language. These references illustrate the kind of world Axel Arigato wants to project. The brand was founded in 2014 in Sweden by Max Svardh et Albin Johansson. They are two e-commerce specialists and their aim was to create a global brand with an universal resonance. For Axel Arigato, inspiration is everywhere. The style might reminds you the minimalistic approach of Lanvin or sometimes National standard. Some models would even be associated with Van’s. But what makes it unique is the incredible feeling to get the best of design right down on your feet. The design is made in Paris and many inspiring illustrations comes from Asia. Portugal was chosen as a production location thanks to a more than hundred years know-how. Axel Arigato utilizes the best quality of leather coming from Italy. This consolidation of the best know-how brings to market probably the best sneakers you can find for that price.

When we started from a napkin we had a vision and a dream, and it was sneakers. We were both big fans but it was also where we saw a gap in the market. In terms of the business model and the price point that we have, there was actually no one offering the same kind of products at that price point but still offer premium materials.” – Albin Johansson, CEO of Axel Arigato

Two years ago, the Swedish brand opened a store in London. After a very successful online business, there was a need to materialize the hook of the brand with its customers and London seemed the perfect location to connect to a urban lifestyle clientele. Later on, Stockholm was also the perfect location for a second store.
