ARKK x LÆRKE ANDERSEN.
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, August 2018—ARKK Copenhagen debuts their first-ever design collaboration with Danish designer Lærke Andersen. The sneaker capsule will debut during Lærke Andersen’s runway at Copenhagen Fashion Week, SS19.
As the first official design collaboration for both brands, ARKK Copenhagen and Lærke Andersen focused on producing pieces that would highlight their collective passion for minimalistic design. The limited edition sneaker capsule emphasizes simplicity, functionality and working with sporty and technical details for a refined, yet innovative Scandinavian aesthetic.
Kasper Høj Rasmussen, Creative Director & Co-founder of ARKK Copenhagen:
“We have waited a long time to present our first official design collab. So when Lærke reached out, it just felt right. Her story, her passion and her journey is so similar to our own. To work on a design project where there is mutual respect and vision to create something that was to become more than what each of us would do, was how we imagined releasing our first collaboration.”
All three sneakers carry a custom sculpted, ARKK WAVE13 chunky sole-unit featuring angular design cues from the Den Blå Planet Aquarium in Denmark. A custom marbled colorway for each style further compliments the bold sole units.
