men The Nordic outdoors
Inspired by the nature of Nordic landscapes, ARKET presents the A/W 2020 equipment guide for the explorations of the season. Designed for the best performance both in nature and in the city, these pieces are developed to withstand cold, wind and rain while being a pleasure to wear.
01 Down outerwear
The demanding conditions of autumn and winter require jackets and coats that are protective against the cold, rain and wind, yet light and easy to wear and roomy enough for other protective layers to be worn underneath. Technical details such as elastic adjustments at the cuffs, a high neck and a full length that protects as desired while allowing freedom of movement are features to look for.
02 Sturdy footwear
Finding the appropriate shoes for the autumn and winter seasons is crucial to enjoy an outdoor experience. A good grip, resistance to water and good insulation are the three fundamental aspects of proper winter footwear. Our winter boots are equipped with chunky rubber outsoles that ensure a good grip in variable conditions. The deep lugs provide traction and the high-quality cushioning make these boots comfortable to wear even after hours of continuous use.
03 Knitted fabrics
Knitted jumpers are versatile, comfortable and easy to wear throughout the seasons. The warmth and comfort they provide make it a reasonable choice for the coldest months of the year, and the appropriate cut and fit will result in an ultimate staple in your wardrobe. The unique properties of knitwear have helped the expansion of its use. Leggings and trousers are today essential knitted pieces, just as warming accessories and slim-fitted fine knits for a base-layer choice. With temperature-regulating properties and a breathability that is harder to achieve with synthetic yarns, merino wool, lambswool or yak are the best options for durable jumpers in changeable weather.
04 Pile and fleece layers
Warm, comfortable and soft, pile and fleece jackets and sweatshirts are among the most demanded garments during autumn and winter. They provide cozy warmth without the bulk of heavy knitwear, and the range of styles available make these pieces the perfect mid-layer for both the mountain and the streets. Our range of pile and fleece is also made using recycled fibres and natural wools for thesoftest, warmest and most gentle fabrics.
