Forét’s FW22 collection redefines the way we view nature and the way we dress, reminding us that life is right outside our door.
Born in 2014, Forét is in its seventh year of creating contemporary collections that revolve around life in the wild. For many brands, the early years are all about finding a voice in the loud and fast-paced world of menswear. For Forét, however, those years were all about slowing things down so the label’s confident personality could shine, far from the lights and crowds of the city. Fall/Winter 2022 sees Forét venture further into nature than ever before, not only in the philosophy behind the collection, but also in the garments that populate it.
Sadly, the long summer days we take for granted each year have come to an end. It can be a dull and difficult time to get through. But, taking inspiration from the change of seasons, Forét FW22 transforms darkness into positivity through a collection that redefines the way we see. Each piece in the latest collection seeks to blur the line between outerwear and casual basics. Retaining the brand’s signature sense of stillness and simplicity, FW22 offers a chance to enjoy the hills, take a deep breath of fresh country air and escape the speed of change for a moment.
In a world where consumers are pressured to constantly refresh their wardrobes, Forét FW22 takes a bold stance to offer items that span across occasions. It is in this collection that we truly see Forét’s masterful ability to harness contemporary versatility. From a new generation of technical outerwear for weekend getaways to hard-wearing button-down shirts, every item has been thought out down to the smallest detail to deliver total efficiency at every level.
The focus on details is particularly eye-catching this season. Shell jackets made from recycled polyester feature a range of pockets to ensure you won’t miss a thing while you’re out on the trail; likewise, Sherpa fleeces are defined by wrap-around ripstop panels that provide carry space for all your essentials. But alongside the functional details comes a renewed appreciation for the visual beauty of nature. A highlight of the collection is a high quality white long sleeve T-shirt that features an illustration of the Røsnæs Hills to remind everyone of the beauty that awaits outside their door.
Thus, Forét’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection is a product of the harsh, insular year caused by COVID. Combining functionality and beauty, the collection celebrates the freedom of the outdoors by allowing its wearer to enjoy nature in comfort while positioning nature at the center of its visual character.
