Arket means "sheet of paper" in Swedish and this Stockholm-based brand has essential simplicity at its very core. Each piece is the result of archival research and consideration of how to reinvent the familiar. The key here is the choice of fabrics and a cut unique to each part of the collection. Arket aims for every piece to be in your wardrobe for a long time, with a timeless ethos that is the very essence of Scandinavian style.
When it comes to Arket sizing, the brand's clothing typically fits true to size. Each item is true to the label’s democratic philosophy. Expect breezy looseness. Jackets and coats are constructed for a looser fit while the simplicity of intricately imagined jumpers is conceived for both comfort and style. If you'd prefer a more tailored feel, consider going a size down to find your personal Arket look. T-shirts and the label's essential jeans fit true to size, with the possibility of going a size up for still more casual living. The best way to experience Arket's unique take on Swedish design is to try pieces from their collections for yourself.
Points to consider:
All pieces fit true to your usual size, with a loose, airy feel
If you're in between sizes, consider a size down for shirts and outerwear, for a more tailored look
Consider a size up for T-shirts, for a more relaxed style
