We all need it at some point, to take a few solid steps back, escape all usual surroundings, change of scenery and routines, take deep breaths and lower our shoulders. Speaking for myself, and presume for many others, the challenge is finding the time. For as much as we love glorious beach holidays with friends and exploring exciting cities over weekends, I wouldn’t necessarily call it charging batteries, unless it’s somewhere completely remote and silent that puts things in perspective, but by the time you return to high speed normal life hopefully you’re missing the buzz too.

For me that escape is heading back home to were I grew up in the North of Norway, and while spending my Easter there for all outdoor activities than can be offered, I again teamed up with Net-a-Porter’s lifestyle section , Net-a-Sporter, that offers the best selection of crossover lifestyle and sportswear there is. At higher altitudes than last summers beach run, my favourite local photographer Rune Dahl, captured a hiking trip in the mountain I grew up and basically skied before I could walk, Narvikfjellet.

Not wanting to splurge on whole new wintery gear so late in the season I put together a few allrounder pieces that I will be using for other than alpine surroundings as well. This rash guard for instance will be my faithful companion come water-sport season, and waterproof boots can walk me anywhere in British outdoor life. Anyway, we don’t always need to justify our sartorial choices right, even on a mountain (!), these sunnies speak for themselves…
