Änggården is the name of a residential area in Gothenburg, Sweden’s second city. This port city on the country’s west coast stands in stark contrast to the polished capital city of Stockholm with its rough around the edges, industrial-chic vibe. Änggården straddles the urban and natural borders of the city. It is this dynamic that has influenced us in the development of the new Änggården collection.
Put on your running shoes and within minutes of running you’ll be among mountain bikers and hikers foraging mushrooms and berries in a stunning nature reserve. Head the opposite direction after your run and you’ll quickly end up in the bustling and hip Linnéstaden for your post-run macchiato. Änggården also has a special place in YMR Track Club founder Peter Häggström’s heart, as that is the neighborhood where he lived for many years during his time as an elite athlete.
Änggården’s location, in between the trendiest part of the city and a nature reserve, has been the main inspiration designing this collection. We have designed a completely new look and fit, inspired by streetwear fashion from across the globe. The new Änggården Tights come in new streetwear inspired colors: army, black and navy, giving them a casual and edgy look. While streetwear fashion inspired the look of this collection, the challenges of weather and nature have driven the development of the new fabrics for this Änggården black running t-shirt. The new fabrics have excellent temperature control and moisture-wicking properties.
