A complete wardrobe should possess a range of reliable, versatile staples that can mould to suit your movements. The secret, or perhaps, the worst kept secret, into forging a multi-functional collection of clothing is by taking inspiration from Scandinavia.
Scandinavian style is everywhere, with the minimalist identity of the region continuing to influence new menswear movements. Representing this, we have created an outfit to pay tribute to the current Scandi surge and to build up your working wardrobe in the process. Curating a look that incorporates utilitarian colour hues, in green, grey and navy with adaptable spring-inspired layering. Maintain an assured style all year round by checking out the details of Edit #32 – Scandinavian Staples below.
This year, neutral colour hues will act as the core to your wardrobe, and this Dark Green Stockholm Raincoat from Stutterheim is the ideal piece of outerwear to start your collection. Blending versatility and function amongst a modern and minimal silhouette, the Stutterheim is a rare hybrid of style and sensibility. In order to maximise the elegance of the Stockholm, it is best worn in isolation. Simplify your outfit through adopting a neutral colour pallette, or as the Green Stockholm displays, through navy and grey shades. In doing so, the delicate details of the coat stand out. The rubberised cotton offers a clean, matte-finish complemented by side stretching pockets, durable drawstrings and a silver button fastening.
Providing a balance to your wardrobe, and to the Scandinavian aesthetic, is the MKI Grey Cashmere Merino Roll Neck Sweater. Inspired by a cold-weather classic, the sweater adopts a traditional roll-neck design, which will make it a timeless addition to your wardrobe; ideal for stand alone wear in warmer climes or layered through winter. Crafted from a supremely soft cashmere-merino wool blend, the MKI will become a sure found favourite in your collection.
Reliable denim is a pillar in every wardrobe, so it pays to purchase the right style, fit and size to suit you. Han Kjobenhavn has built a legacy for providing the answer to those specific credentials, by creating contemporary, comfortable and superior fitting jeans. The latest pair, the Tapered Selvage Jean, is an exemplary example of the brand’s high standards, expertly crafted from bespoke Kaihara selvage denim and dyed with natural indigo to achieve the clean blue aesthetic. Cut in a classic tapered fit with a regular waist and narrower leg.
Unmistakable Mismo style combined with a contemporary, sport-inspired aesthetic makes this Navy MS Sprint Backpack typically Scandinavian. Featuring an adjustable fastening system which allows for the expansion of the bag depending on your needs, the MS Sprint is the ideal day-to-day accessory. Complete with foamed shoulder straps for added comfort, the backpack is refined with subtle details, in the form of the internal foamed iPad pocket and two smaller power adaptor pockets.
White Sneakers possess a universal appeal and so do Common Projects. Revered as the premium provider of luxury leather sneakers, Common Projects has grown to become the one and only essential sneaker brand. The most iconic style in the Common Projects collection, the White Original Achilles Low, are made in Italy from clean white leather uppers and stitched on top of white rubber soles.
