Over the past couple of years, from the smart sweatshirt, to the head-to-toe sport look, we’ve seen the return and perhaps evolution of “sweats” to real fashion. For their Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Moa Wilkman and Aidin Sanati, the creative team behind Stockholm-based Ubi Sunt, have clearly drawn influence from this movement, while also imbuing a smart amount of Swedish elegance.

Ubi Sunt’s collection is based in strong, but downplayed pieces that include tech fabric from Japan, Italian wool, and reworked cotton jersey, looking polished, but relaxed in a Nordic cool sort of way. A moody color palette, as well as the implementation of oversized coats and a couple of classically tailored pieces, provides contrast to the casual factor. In a moment where designers are tending to over-work basics, it is refreshing to see an understated approach that still remains creative; this very reduction of design to basic form allows for the pieces from this collection to stand out on their own, or simply function as well-thought wardrobe staples.
