Danish label Forét was founded in 2014 by childhood friends Jeppe Alexander Meier and Jesper Finderup, who sought to translate their shared passion for nature and outdoor adventures into functional and versatile men's clothing that doesn't compromise on style. Everything from Forét's hard-wearing outerwear to its cosy knitwear is designed to inspire the everyday person to slow down, switch off and get outdoors.
This philosophy is perfectly captured in the brand's latest spring/summer 2021 collection, entitled 'Back to the Roots'. With function and ease-of-wear at its core, the collection is replete with versatile tees, overshirts, trousers and accessories made from long-lasting fabrics in robust cuts and nature-inspired earthy tones. Just as appropriate for everyday errands as action-packed adventures, these pieces are guaranteed to become fail-safe wardrobe staples. Let's take a look at five key styles from the collection.
Constructed from warm polar fleece with roomy pockets and sporty details, Forét's Silence jacket is a contemporary take on an outdoor clothing classic. Mesh lining offers breathability, so it's perfectly suitable for year-round year.
The aptly-named Shelter coat is ideal for any occasion, just as easily dressed up with tailored trousers and an Oxford shirt as kept casual with jeans and sneakers. Made from 100% cotton twill, this take on the timeless mac coat is lightweight yet protective, promising wear after wear in all kinds of weather.
Crafted with ultimate comfort in mind, these cosy fleece pants are the ultimate loungewear staple, equally ideal for working from home or holing up in an off-grid cabin. Once you try them on we can guarantee you won't want to take them off.
A navy and white striped long-sleeve tee is a non-negotiable wardrobe staple and Forét's version is as classic as they come. Crafted from 100% organic cotton, it promises maximum softness. Wear it under a canvas overshirt teamed with relaxed fit corduroy trousers for a laidback take on workwear style.
This simple grey tee may look plain and unadorned from afar, but the tiny embroidered fish is a reminder of Forét's dedication to detail. Made from 100% organic cotton, it's free from toxic pesticides and chemicals and uses less water than standard cotton.
