About the project

Arte is a premium menswear brand with a contemporary urban edge, based in Antwerp. With it's steadily growing client base and popularity, Arte was in need of a new online presence which reflects their recognition as an established clothing label.

The website design was done in close collaboration with Vrints-Kolsteren, the studio behind the the visual identity and ongoing creative direction of the clothing label.

We developed the website on the Shopify platform. The frontpage consists out of modular blocks of content. The client can easily change the positioning, sizing and colour of each of these sections. The result is an ever-changing and truly flexible homepage that allows Arte to easily and effectively communicate highlighted products, upcoming events and more.

An additional website was made to showcase the seasonal collections. A horizontally oriented slideshow presents images from the lookbook. Subtle typography and minimal content allow the images to take center stage.
