Danish Simplicity from Norse Projects – SS17 Pt V

March 20, 2017

When it comes to minimalist design principles, Denmark is right in the thick of it. Some of the world’s coolest brands have come from the small Scandanavian nation, and Norse Projects is no exception. With roots in the streetwear culture that lives in their hometown of Copenhagen, they put together hints of streetwear and workwear in a seamless manner. This combination under the vision of Creative Director and co-founder Tobia Sloth has Norse making simple staple items that slot well into any wardrobe.

This look is a good example of what Norse Projects can do for your closet. The easy fit creates a comfortable office get-up as much as it impresses for dinner at the in-laws.

The Sigfred Merino sweater is focused on feeling great to the touch. It plays well with whatever you want to pair with it. Donnell opted to work with another shade of blue with a complimentary oxford striped shirt also from Norse. It keeps a low profile with subtle striping and mother-of-pearl buttons.

Navy and Khaki have stood the test of time as one of the most reliable colour combinations in menswear. From suits to sweaters you really can’t go wrong. The Norse Aros Light Twill are a superior spring/summer pant option. The lightweight, washed material is soft and breathable to keep you comfortable.

Staying with the classic aesthetic of this outfit, a great footwear option is a chelsea boot. The Nolan, from Grenson, concentrates on choice materials coming together to respect the classic silhouette. The premium grey suede on a single leather sole are as minimal and comfortable as you can find.

All in all this look takes minimalist cues from Norse and Greyson to piece together a reliable outfit across a number of situations.
