After recently releasing a FW21 activewear capsule that combined everyday with sportswear styles, Swedish brand ARKET has now launched the men’s Nordic Outdoors collection for the winter season.
Photographed in the landscapes of Jämtland, this Autumn/Winter delivery embraces ARKET’s minimalist, modest aesthetic while providing comfort and practical garments to explore the wilderness.
The Nordic Outdoors collection gets its inspiration from nature and wildlife, and so does its design approach: the label has made use of natural and recycled fabrics, like alpaca wool and blended rPET. Nonetheless, the pieces are certainly a great alternative for citylife too.
Providing a range of silhouettes and fits, the collection is based on timeless, engineered essentials. From quilted and padded jackets and raincoats, to knitted tops, Nordic Outdoors brings versatile, protective gear for fall. As the brand states:
This edit explores the key elements that define the wardrobe of the season – the items that just arrived and a glimpse of what’s to come.
In fact, there are a few resemblances 一both conceptually and aesthetically一with the previous activewear collection, such as the functional mid-layered garments and constant fabric innovation.
Other exploring must-haves from ARKET’s new capsule are the hats, backpacks and footwear, including a chunky leather boot perfect even for urban life. If we had to choose three words to describe the recent delivery it would be: sustainable, breathable and durable.
The release is already available on the label’s website and prices range from $40USD to $290USD. Explore ARKET’s Nordic Outdoors capsule here.
