London-based collective Aro Archive is hosting an extensive archival cyber sale early next month. The sale will stand in place of its popular “Super Sale” hosted in-store each year, moving online in accordance with the guidelines shops are having to follow during the coronavirus crisis.
Aro Archive, which is known for its eclectic selection of Japanese, Belgian and other European designer pieces, will be offering 25 percent, 50 percent and even up to 75 percent off the store’s retail price online. The cyber sale will be comprised of the store’s stock, which consistently includes favorites such as Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto, COMME des GARÇONS, Stone Island, Raf Simons, Maison Margiela and many more. What will be up for sale online is yet to be disclosed.
10 percent of all sales of its pre-owned archival pieces will be donated to local Hackney food banks in London, supporting the community that Aro Archive is a part of. Aro Archive’s cyber sale goes live at 12 p.m. GMT on May 1 and will be accessible via a link — stay tuned to its social media accounts for more information on how to shop the sale in the coming days.
