Aardvark Archives

Aardvark Archives is a London-based fashion brand that reimagines archival fashion through a contemporary lens.

Through the singular vision of Founder and Creative Director Nick Chan, Aardvark Archives stands at the intersection of sustainability and design, where traditional craftsmanship meets industrial innovation.


Our Vision
At Aardvark Archives, we believe in the power of dichotomies. Our design language
is a harmonious blend of contrasts: artisanal craftsmanship and industrial
manufacturing, old-world aesthetics and modern sensibilities, refined elegance
and raw edginess. Our non-conformist approach allows us to create distinctive
pieces that serve as the foundational elements of any wardrobe.


Sustainable sourcing is at the heart of our ethos. We are committed to using
eco-friendly materials and processes, ensuring that each piece not only looks
good but also does good. By prioritising sustainability, we aim to set a new
standard in the fashion industry, where style and environmental responsibility
go hand in hand.


Our appreciation for artisanal craftsmanship is evident in every stitch and seam.
Each item is meticulously crafted to showcase the skill and artistry of our
artisans. By combining traditional techniques with modern innovations, we
create pieces that are timeless yet forward-thinking.


Materiality plays a crucial role in our design philosophy. We explore a wide
range of textures and fabrics, from the luxurious to the unconventional, to
create fashion that challenges norms and defies expectations. Our
juxtapositions ensure that every item is uniquely Aardvark Archives.


Join us on this journey as we reshape the future of fashion with sustainability, craftsmanship,
and a daring vision.
