Forét FW22 Collection
The goal of Forét’s FW22 Collection is to remind us all that life is just outside our door. Venturing deep into the mountains and forests is great, but not necessary to experience nature – it’s closer than we think. And their thoughtfully designed collection for this season focuses on garments that can easily take you from work to play, from the office to a quaint trail. Corduroy is a perfect fabric for this, as it’s easily dressed up if needed, but wonderfully durable and comfortable to move in. They cut their Ground Corduroy Shirt and Brook Corduroy Pants from a fine- and medium- waled cord respectively, playing with texture and colour in recognizable silhouettes. Sturdy cotton twills also feature prominently in the collection for their durability and versatility. The Act Overshirt and Brook Chino showcase the fabric perfectly, blending utility with clean wearability. Finally, brand favourites like the Life Shirt and Heath Denim Jeans were brought in as high quality wardrobe staples that you don’t have to think twice about. Nature is always on Forét’s mind, and their new collection showcases this as best as they ever had.
Foret certainly isn’t bound by the past though – there’s a sense of child-like playfulness to much of their clothing that’s hard to replicate. It being summer and all, we’ve got plenty of shorts like the all-purpose Home Shorts, the brilliant green Nettle Shorts, and of course, the heralds of the jean short renaissance we’ve been waiting for – the Parade Shorts in all their denim glory. At the risk of playing favourites, we think the crème de la crème of our inaugural delivery from the Danish menswear mavens is the Gone Corduroy Shirt. This stunner is made from super soft corduroy in just about the nicest shade of green we’ve ever laid eyes on, accented with classic horn-looking buttons to seal the deal. Of course, we’ve got t-shirts too – and they’re waffle knit! The Park T-Shirt is totally dreamy with a nice & boxy fit and a lil’ Foret logo emblazoned on the chest. We could go on all day, but we suggest you heed Foret’s advice to slow down, go offline, and make your way over to the shop to check out their latest collection for yourself – it’s in the shop now.
