We are proud to announce our partnership with ARKK Copenhagen in Belgium. ARKK Copenhagen began with a simple question: why wasn’t there a sneaker brand that synthesized modern streetwear style with clean, Nordic aesthetics? In early 2014, two lifelong friends, Kasper Høj Rasmussen and Thomas Refdahl, set out to answer this question—to find out if it was possible to push sneaker design forward by deconstructing the entire concept. Their quest for an answer led them to dream up a sneaker with a strikingly clean silhouette, rich in thoughtful design details, and featuring Nordic-inspired colorways—a go-anywhere, do-anything sneaker, versatile enough for every aspect of modern urban life.
Today, ARKK Copenhagen designs innovative sneakers that defy the status quo and challenge the perception of what a lifestyle sneaker can be. Rooted in the Scandinavian design heritage, inspired by architecture, and obsessed with details, ARKK seeks to change the footwear game by crafting premium kicks unlike anything else out there. With a focus on simplicity, precision detailing, and unique materiality, ARKK sneakers are designed to be the functional foundation for today’s modern streetwear style.
From October 2018, the collections of ARKK Copenhagen has been on display in our Antwerp showroom. IVY LEE is the first point of contact for all Belgian press related enquiries.
