Tretorn X Movits! Antarktis Jacket

Creating Antarktis Jacket

 

For 128 years we’ve declared our love and passion for nature. By creating functional and sustainable products suitable for the outdoors and everyday adventures.

 

A while ago we got in contact with the Swedish hip-hop group Movits! from Norrbotten. We met and talked about nature, hiking, sustainability and music. It turned out that there were many synergies between us and them, for example their first hiking trip as ten years old went to Sarek in a pair of Tretorn Sarek boots. Also they share our stainable mindset, always trying to leave as little footprint as possible.

 

Also we found out that their record label is called Antarktis Records and from that we decided to do a collab with our Arch Jacket. A jacket that has been tested in Antarctica on an expedition with purpose to raise awareness for the climate changes.

After the meeting with Movits! we decided to create a limited edition tour jacket using our Arch Jacket. Together with the local illustrator Leo Lyxxx who did two custom made prints. The jacket turned out so great that we decided to make a limited edition for fans of Movits! and Tretorn.

Tretorn has quite a long history in music collaborations. Dating back to the 60’s we worked with artists like Billy Joel and Aretha Franklin. In the 70’s we made the official clogs for ABBA. 2017 we made a sneaker collection with André 3000. And for the last years we’ve also been working with Swedish artists as Mwuana, Sammy & Johnny Bennett and Fricky.

 

The jacket will be available online at tretorn.com and released in four drops. Each drop will be connected to Movits! live show dates in Stockholm, Luleå, Gothenburg and Malmö. And also - If you buy the jacket you’ll get two tickets to one of Movits! live shows included!
