Alife

Prominent street and skatewear brand Alife was founded in 1999 in New York, by four friends -- Arnaud Delecolle, Tony Arcabascio, Tammy Brainard and Rob Cristofaro. One of their main reasons in teaming up was to “fill a void of creativity in New York” at that time, and to share their niche, creative lifestyle with a broader audience. Originally a creative workshop based in Manhattan’s Orchard Street, Alife’s innovative designs and forward-thinking products propelled them into an internationally renowned streetwear clothing brand and boutique. The name of the brand came up from the idea of bringing an inanimate object to life, or infusing hype into a product. Alife has collaborated with other companies such as Nike, Reebok, adidas, New Balance, Saucony, Timberland, ASICS, Lacoste, Mitchell&Ness, Dickies, Kangol and more. Alife is also the operation behind A.R.C., a premiere sneaker boutique. Their motto: “THE SOURCE OF ART IS IN THE LIFE OF A PEOPLE.”
