Axel Arigato is a firm cult favourite for its top-notch sneakers, but the Swedish label’s new clothing line cements its aptitude for always hitting the sweet spot between timeless and trendy.

Its apparel line focuses on comfortable athleisure, playing on modern essentials for everyday wear. All the offerings, from T-shirts to wool pants, hint at both Swedish and Japanese minimalism for added appeal.

The Spring/Summer 2017 line, in particular, is dominated by muted colours such as black, oxblood, forest greens, whites and greys., with subtle graphics to catch the eye. You’ll never find yourself struggling to match Axel Arigato clothing with anything in your wardrobe.

Each collection marks an evolution for the brand, and their next capsule is slated for release on 10 August.

Treat yourself, and kit out your wardrobe with some of the brand’s coolest apparel. We’ve picked out 5 of our Axel Arigato clothing favourites to aid your decisions.

Yin Yang Who Longsleeve T-Shirt

Graphics that pop are a massive thing these days, and the Yin Yang Who shirt ticks all the boxes. The chest and back are emblazoned with bright red slogans to catch attention, while the 100 percent cotton shirt keeps you comfortable, even when wearing a long-sleeved top in the tropical heat. This shirt is also available in black, navy and grey.

Arigato Sweatshirt

The Arigato sweatshirt is a statement in simplicity, made of 100 percent cotton and classic rib knit hems. What makes it interesting is the lowered Arigato logo, and the yin yang decal on the side. Pair it with sweatpants and a pair of white sneakers, and you can consider yourselves sorted. The sweatshirt is also available in forest green, white and black.

Saku Hooded Sweatshirt

The Saku sweatshirt looks like a regular statement hoodie from the front, but the back features a floral Yin Yang logo that adds quite a unique touch. It even has a front kangaroo pocket for extra functionality. The sweatshirt is also available in white.

Kuro Trousers

These Kuro trousers are the epitome of casual chic. They’ve got a comfortable elastic waistband, and drawstring ties, but they’re also cut slim, making them look more tailored. Each wool-blend pair also features creases at the centre for a smart touch. These are also available in navy and black.
