Arket is hailed as the modern-day marketplace for timeless wardrobe staples, so as you’d expect, its jeans are some of the best on the high street. Boasting a design house in Stockholm, it incorporates the Nordic concept of simplicity into its business model and design process.
With an emphasis on more eco-conscious materials and classic designs, the pieces are made with longevity in mind. Everything is mindfully curated, from the rivets to the stitching and shaping. For this reason, you’re less likely to find trend-led denim on Arket’s shop floor. You will, however, find a selection of clean-cut lines, boxy fits and heavily vintage-inspired denim.
If you’re anything like me, finding jeans can be a challenge. They may be basics, but that doesn’t mean they’re effortlessly obtained. You don’t want jeans so tight that you feel encased, but you want them to feel classic in look and hold their shape throughout years of wear. I waved goodbye to skinny jeans many moons ago and have since gravitated towards a straight-leg fit, of which Arket offers plenty.
