Axel Arigato opens shop in Bibliotekstan

By on May 4, 2017

Bibliotekstan welcomes Axel Arigato to Stockholm. As of April/May, the brand’s temporary store – which is also the first in Sweden – is on Smålandsgatan 20.

Axel Arigato is now available for the first time to buy in a store in Sweden – in the brand’s temporary concept store Axel Arigato Gallery, which opened the doors in Bibliotekstan on Smålandsgatan 20. The brand offers exclusive sneakers, often made in materials such as suede and leather and are handmade in Portugal. They are sold – in addition to online and in their own store in London – among other on the luxury department stores Harvey Nichols and Le Bon Marché.

We think it’s very exciting to work with pop-up collaborations and are happy to welcome Axel Arigato to Bibliotekstan. Axel Arigato strengthens Bibliotekstan’s offerings in a good way and helps create an even more dynamic environment in the area, said Emanuel Westin, head of business development store, Hufvudstaden.

The design concept in the shop is the result of a collaboration between Creative Director and co-founder Max Svärdh and the famous Swedish architect Christian Halleröd. Like the London store, Axel Arigato chose to design the store more like a gallery – a deliberately clean surface with the sole purpose of letting the art stand out in space.
