With well over 100 years of history behind them it is no wonder that Swedish outerwear specialists Didriksons are one of the best in the world when it comes to the art of the raincoat. For Spring Summer 2022 the brand have pulled together a collection for every eventuality and one that will keep you protected whether spending in the wild or on the commute.
The new collection from Didriksons showcases a range of Spring inspired Pastel colours like pink, soft green and lilac on a selection of jackets which are sure to become your favourite companions for sunny, windy or rainy days before the Summer.
“Winter is letting go, and cold winds are giving way for a gentle and more hopeful breeze. The seasonal shifts that we appreciate so much up here in the Nordic countries all have their unique characteristics, and now spring is calling us. She brings warmth and togetherness, fresh air and new scents. As the sunlight breaks through the clouds, the colors return to nature and you can almost hear the warm and long-awaited invitation like a whisper in the wind: See you outside.”
Didriksons Spring Summer 22 Jacket range takes its inspiration from the Swedish coastline and expands on the brands close connection with the coast and sea. Celebrating the diversity of Sweden’s Coast the collection captures the transition from darkness to light, cold to warmth, winter to Spring. From new styles for 2022 to some returning classics this is one of the most exciting collections from Didriksons to date.
Didriksons mentality hasn’t shifted since the early days of producing workwear for fisherman back in 1913. Rather than challenging the elements, Didriksons adapt to them by creating functional garments which keep you dry whatever the weather.
The new collection of Didriksons jackets is available online and instore at Nordic Outdoor. We’ve selected a few of our favourite styles from the new range below and you can also take a look at our new collection campaign where we test some of the new jackets in our home city of Edinburgh.
Didriksons Thyra Jacket
Potentially the standout jacket from the new range is the Thyra Jacket which will become your go to style for walks in the rain, boat trips in the wind and adventures by the shore. A brand new silhouette for SS22 the Thyra jacket is created to push the boundaries of what Didriksons can achieve with their production. By creating an anorak with no trims they have made something which is not only lightweight and sporty but also much easier to recycle.
The use of a mono-material design means that the jacket does not need to be separated before it can be recycled and the use of 100% polyester fabrics (including the membrane) are fully recyclable.
Fully windproof and waterproof the jacket features a bold colourway and an oversized fit. With an oversized logo to the back of the neckline this is a serious style for Springtime adventures.
