Brand Spotlight: Axel Arigato
Swedish luxury shoe brand Axel Arigato was created in 2014 by founders Albin Johansson and Max Svärdh. They burst onto the fashion scene with gusto and quickly made a name for themselves as a brand to watch. They famously consistently released a new style of shoe every week since summer 2014, and in the years that have followed the brand has worked to hone nail down their signature style to create the sleek and fashion-forward shoes we know and love today. Such enormous and consistent growth for a shoe brand is rare and can be put down to the founders’ keen eye for design that works and that will make a statement in a crowded market. Consistently crafted from the highest quality materials, Axel Arigato shoes are not only fabulous to look at but unrivalled in their capacity for comfort and durability. If you’re after a brand new pair of kicks just in time for Autumn/Winter 2019, check out some of our favourites from the latest Axel Arigato collection below, and if you like what you see, you can take in the whole collection here.
