Axel Arigato – Essencu

Further to our Axel Arigato sneaker feature, the Swedish contemporary lifestyle brand has further expanded its offering of clean lines, minimalist style and modern essentials with the launch of Autumn/ Winter 2017- “Essencu”.


The latest capsule works as a complement to the prints and bold graphics of a contemporary wardrobe. Inline with the Axel Arigato minimalist Scandinavian/Japanese aesthetic this capsule is all about low-key quality apparel.


Essencu also marks the launch of caps as a new product category for Axel Arigato, alongside hoodies, sweats and tees building on the strong foundation laid by their 2 previous capsules launched earlier in 2017.



We managed to get our hands on the Essencu Sweatshirt in black cotton-jersey which is exceptionally comfortable. At £105 its an attractive price-point for such a well made garment, we loved the minimal branding on the sleeve (see image, top). In addition we received the Kuro Trousers in black wool, made with a relaxed yet tailored (in the right places) fit- with aa slim fit leg, central leg creases and an elasticated drawstring waistline. Priced at £130 they bridge the gap of extreme comfort but with style; smart-joggers, ideal for wearing almost anywhere.


The capsule is available exclusively from the Axel Arigato London flaghship, Stockholm concept space and online through now. Axel Arigato are definitely worth a look if clean lines, minimalist style and modern essentials are your thing- we are most impressed with every aspect of this up an coming Swedish brand.
