Founded in Helsinki's underground scene, Makia brings an urban feel with a refined Scandi edge to each of its pieces. With a focus on relaxed silhouettes, muted shades and a tough aesthetic, this casualwear collection will have you wishing for a five-day weekend (even more than usual).

Makia: Saturday and Sunday staples

With a distinctly laid-back aesthetic, Makia is a solid go-to to add an effortlessly cool vibe to your downtime look. Relax in the New York normcore trend by looking out for minimalist tees in natural hues. Team with black loose-fit jeans, tennis shoes and an oversized duster jacket for simple sophistication. Embrace the brand's roots by giving a nod to Scandi style. It’s all about light shades and clean lines: team a crisp, fitted top from Makia with camel-coloured tapered trousers and a pair of suede trainers for a Northern European-inspired outfit.

Makia: your smart casual look sorted

Thanks to the collection of slim-fit separates in the Makia range, it’s the perfect place to head to when you need to meet a smart casual dress code. Ditch the suit on dress-down Friday by taking advantage of dark denim jeans - just keep the cut structured and team with a crisp white tee and matte black trainers, then finish off with an unlined blazer for refreshed professional perfection. Spruce yourself up a little for date night with a slick shirt in a cool-toned hue. Pair with ankle-grazing chinos in a desert shade, a trench coat and tan loafers. Accessorise with a mini backpack and a spritz of your favourite aftershave for a look that might just bag you a follow-up text.
