Marc O’Polo. That’s the name two Swedes and a fun-loving American came up with back in 1967 — in Stockholm, no less. Their idea was simple: Use natural materials, keep it casual and give people the freedom to be themselves. More than 45 years on, that’s exactly what we’re doing. 

One of Europe’s leading premium casual fashion brands, Marc O’Polo has set its sights on the world. As we pursue our vision, we’ll continue to favor natural materials and be guided by the liberal philosophy, a reflection of our Nordic roots, that has brought us so far.
