Polar Skate Co.

Check out our feature and outfit picks from the Polar SP19 collection here.

Polar Skate Co is one of the most distinguished independent skate clothing brands on the scene, lead by founder Pontus Alv, the collections are driven by art, culture and Alv’s personal skate scene stretching from Polar’s home of Malmö, to other parts of Europe.

SP19 brings warmer tones to a selection of key styles whilst also introducing new street life and crime themed artwork from Jacob Ovgren, Stefan Narancic and of course, Alv himself. Stripe reworks remain prominent, applied using roll printing techniques in varying widths alongside textural velour and lightweight waterproof polyamide, which all hit varying spring weather needs bang on whilst retaining Polar’s distinctive design style. The brands favoured boxy fit continues to be a leading silhouette, brought to life this season through a selection of custom printed fabrics – check out the Plaid Work Jacket, the Signature Art Shirt and Patterned Polo Shirt – all of which have been designed and manufactured in Europe.

Skate Co. saw Alv working within the Malmö skate scene, which lead him into making experimental skate movies such as ‘The Strongest of The Strange’ and ‘I Like It Here Inside My Mind, Don’t Wake Me This Time’. His individual creative style is what helped plant the initial seed of Polar, and his videography style set the tone for the aesthetic of the brand.

If you’re not sure where to start with the extensive offering from Polar, we suggest going for a champion style - the Polar Default Hoodies come in a selection of colourways and their cotton poly blend means they’re ideal for layering. Matching the underlying 90s influence of Polar, the Big Boy Jeans come in a baggy fit - reminiscent of styles from the early days of skateboarding - we’re really into this style all year round thanks to the heavyweight cotton and embroidered pocket icon. We recommended topping it all off with the Happy Sad Classic Socks, the classic double line banding keeps it old school alongside the wide eyed faces on the toes which show Polar’s light-hearted personality. Through everything Polar releases you feel the creative approach Pontus has to every project, there’s nothing unnecessary or unconsidered, we’re stoked to see what’s next.
