ARKET Basics CollectionOur well-considered assortment of classic everyday staples for men and women. Carefully designed for an effortless fit and made from quality materials that stand the test of repetitive use.
Basics are the building blocks of every wardrobe; simple yet essential garments that need to live up to the demands of everyday use. ABC is ARKET’s basic collection of carefully curated t-shirts, underwear, and socks, designed with close attention to fit, feel and durability. Pick and mix your personal line-up of basics or be inspired by some of our favourite combinations.
The reliability of a perfectly plain T-shirt cannot be overestimated. From workdays to weekends, it is one of the most useful garments in the wardrobe, easy to pair with almost anything and great to build outfits around: when layering, seeking comfort or casualising an office suit.
The garments you wear closest to your body should make you feel your best all day long. The ABC curation of underwear is fit-comes-first styles, selected with a special attention to material and supporting comfort. Upgrade your underwear drawer with sleek silhouette styles in sophisticated black that are equally easy to wear and refill.
Socks are a small but essential part of the wardrobe, making sure that your feet feel great from morning to night. The ABC line of socks are made from high-quality organic cotton, supima cotton or mercerized cotton to ensure durability, dryness and wearing comfort. The design is kept in basic black to simplify washing, pairing and restocking.
Care For your basics
Sustainability is at the core of ARKET, naturally incorporated in all of our processes. One of the greatest things we can do to reduce our environmental footprint is to make our garments last longer by caring for them and thereby elongate their lifespan.
It is a given that garments you wear closest to your body on an everyday basis need to be washed regularly but by doing this in a more conscious way you can reduce the effect on the environment.
Don’t wash your T-shirts more often than necessary. Spot-treating and steaming T-shirts is a great alternative to washing. In between washes, air to regain a fresh feeling or use garment refresher spray.
Wash all basics at the lowest temperature and the shortest cycle possible to save water and use a natural, biodegradable liquid rinse. Shake it to minimise wrinkles and hang or lay flat to air-dry.
