Based in the heart of Malmö and lead by the infamous Pontus Alv, we always know something good is on its way when we hear word of a new Polar Skate Co. collection. Constantly inspired by culture and art, Polar represents its own vibe which has not only lead to a global following but a new character within the skate industry. Independently owned and driven with the same spirit, the brand sets itself apart from others throughout the use of imaginative custom artwork designed by a selection of talented local Swedish artists, unconventional silhouettes, and of course inspiring direction visible across a range of acclaimed skate documentaries. Mix and match however you like and let our collated mix of relaxed reworked leisurewear, merged with champion key styles guide you.
Undeniably two key pieces amongst the selection: we paired the Art Knit Sweatshirt and the TK Surf Pants for a full on monochrome look. Cut with a loose tapered leg, the surf pants offer a wide backdrop for an all over custom print designed by one of Polar’s favourite creatives: sculptor and painter Tynan Kerr. Taken over amid the two-tone vibe we brought in the Stroke Logo Scarf - a surprise new accessory introduced this season - and the ivory Merino Wool Beanie, a no-brainer go-to when the temperature drops. Keeping in tune with a community vibe that is recognised through Polar’s archive and history, references to team riders Dane Brady and Oskar ‘Oski’ Rozenberg are incorporated within graphics created by Swedish artist Stefan Narancic.
Stripes have hit it big this season and are going to fall into next season, so we saw it appropriate to incorporate some contrasts revealed underneath quarter zip fronts and layered beneath chunky outerwear. For the days that don’t warrant heavy layers, we paired the brown Block Zip Sweatshirt with the opposing print on the Vertical Stripe Tee. Fine wale cord brings in durability as well as timeless character. The sherpa lining added within the Corduroy Jacket is much welcomed at this time of year, plus the double layer results in a distinctively chunky silhouette which brings with it a reaction when paired with the newly introduced ‘93 Cords and Corduroy Cap, all colour matched to the same dark teal tone.
We threw a good bit of colour into the mix with an unexpected wild card, the AM Art Shirt which boasts a multicoloured digital print across a versatile collared silhouette. A new addition to the Polar range at Flatspot, Andrew Marazorol’s whimsical touch brings in bursts of golden yellow and red which works particularly well with the new light purple stone wash on the Big Boy Jeans - anyone who’s owned a pair of these before knows the cut is pretty impressive - topped off with a pair of Stefan Janoski’s and the Contrast Cap for a distinctive everyday look.
