Arena Menswear's Heroes:
What brand is on your radar right now?
“KLATTERMUSEN - It’s basically Fjallraven but on steroids. Another outdoor hiking & trekking outfitter from Sweden but on another level. Key pieces from them include the ALGIR range of hip packs and the ASYNJA jacket that has more buttons and whistles than one of Elon's rockets.”
What are your key pieces for SS23?
“The key piece for this spring and summer is definitely 'The Forest Rules’ pack from Karhu. It’s this summer's concept pack, based upon three main areas of focus to protect the wilderness: wildlife, safety first and preservation. Each style within the Forest Rules Pack is set apart from the main collection as they have the strongest colour ways for the season and feature limited edition insoles and individual branded boxes. The Legacy 98 and Fusion 2.0 are staff favourites.”
What else is coming in 2023?
“Something else special for SS23 is the collaboration between Danner & Mystery Ranch. The limited-edition, versatile trail hiker is inspired by the vivid, rich, layered colours of the Big Sky Country sunsets of Montana. A lightweight mesh upper and GORE-TEX waterproof liner provide breathable protection from the elements, keeping feet comfortable in all conditions.”
