New footwear label AUXILIARY got its name from its audio equipment influences and has released its first lookbook called “Vol. 1.” The brand, which eschews seasonal collections, counts skate shoes, cars, graphic slogans and specific vintage audio products, such as the now defunct MiniDisc.
The collection was created by footwear design Matthew Taylor and Graeme Gaughan, who made their shared passions into this project. The shoes themselves are made in Portugal, using grosgrain and premium leathers, which are stacked on the upper to create a toned-down iteration of the chunky shoe. The shoes are finished off with a 3M reflective heel tab. AUXILIARY will launch its debut collection at the likes of Selfridges and Liberty later this month.
