Perusing Instagram unearths a wealth of style inspiration, yet the transformation from photo-reel to reality can be hard to replicate.
Representing this, Erik Forsgren, @fson19, is the latest influencer to take the reins of our Edit series to showcase how the adored Scandinavian style can be so easily achieved.
Staying true to his assured aesthetic, Erik Forsgren has curated Edit #26, assembling a range of luxe, neutral basics in to the ideal minimal-inspired style.
Explore Edit #26 by Erik Forsgren for the ultimate seasonal inspiration:
Lovingly conceived on the streets of Copenhagen, this Army Shirt from Han Kjobenhavn, complete in a palatable grey colour hue, is the ideal shirt as we approach winter. Representing functional design and a minimal aesthetic, the shirt is cut in to an adaptable boxed-fit silhouette. The accompanying curved bottom hem adds a subtle statement edge to the aesthetic, blending seamlessly with Erik’s choice of trousers and statement sneakers. Enhanced by the fact that Erik’s navy trousers are worn with a slight turn-up to compliment the round seam of the shirt and also to showcase his sneaker choice. To replicate the turn-up style, we recommend the Navy Chinos from Gant Rugger.
A dedicated devotee to one colour footwear, the latest addition to Erik's collection are these Special Edition White Virtus Low Top 3 Sneakers from burgeoning sneaker brand ETQ Amsterdam. As atoned in previous Edit’s, there is now no better time to lace up sneakers, especially when they adopt a clean and simplistic aesthetic like these Virtus ETQ’s. Perfectly punctuating the power of statement sneakers this season, the minimalist all-white design represents ETQ’s refined style to act as the vocal point in this neutral inspired outfit. The luxury leather uppers are complimented down low with the introduction of the brand’s new Virtus outsoles, which are designed to offer maximum comfort and support every step of the way. Wear with a slight turn up to frame the sneakers, and throughout winter pair up with a thick sock, in a neutral or autumnal colour hue, to provide warmth to your turn-up.
Briefcases don’t have to be reserved for on-duty days. Displaying the versatility and sophisticated detailing of the briefcase is this Black MS Office adaptation from Mismo. Refining a classic style in to a contemporary accessory, the all-black exterior with complimenting leather details ensures your every possession will be suitably stored courtesy of the durable exterior. Incorporated in to a casual, minimal outfit, Erik perfectly portrays how briefcases are no longer a conservative choice - functionality has never looked so good.
