These Neutral Jackets Are Your Outerwear Cheat Codes
Axel Arigato began its story with a handful of understated classic luxury sneakers. Since then — 2014, to be exact — the Swedish label has expanded its selection every season, growing into the all-encompassing brand that it is in 2022. One of the biggest steps in Axel Arigato’s short history came in the form of its Spring/Summer 2022 collection.
A much closer focus on apparel positioned Axel Arigato SS22 as a breakout moment for the brand, presenting a new look that showed the full potential of the label. Alongside high-end staples and the usual host of luxury kicks, the things that really stood out to us this season were the neutral jackets and coats.
Ranging from overshirts to varsity jackets and fully-fledged woolen overcoats, the pages of Axel Arigato are stacked with neutral jackets and coats to see you through any season. When we say neutral, we don’t just mean the brand’s signature dusty hues, but also the fact that these outerwear pieces have been designed with versatility in mind.
Whether you’re layering up on a summer’s evening or fighting off winds in fall, Axel Arigato outerwear has got you covered. Below, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best neutral jackets and coats from the latest Axel Arigato drop.
