Is an independent fashion brand based in Stockholm, Sweden founded in 2005 by Jockum Hallin, Cristopher Nying and Richardos Klarén. Known for applying custom-developed fabrics on signature shapes, OUR LEGACY has amassed a devoted following over the years establishing the role of a cult brand.
The collections include men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, defined by a progressive exploration of seasonal themes through an intricate attention to detail and repurpo- sing of materials. OUR LEGACY exists in the junction between familiar and irregular, with reworked yet recognizable silhouettes across recurring sub-categories.
The Spring 2023 collection was dubbed after the Swedish word for air – “luft”. The element of air and its characteristics can be found throughout.
Outerwear has been constructed inspired by the fleeting properties of wind with the material interacting with it. Properties of light in concrete surroundings are represented in treatments throughout the collection. Technical garments have been purposefully reduced to their essential core, allowing for material, components and trims to stay in focus. A conscious contraction of attributes to create hybrid garments with aspects of tech as a foundation but appropriate for use, sometimes contrasting the initial illusion of the garment.
This methodology has also inspired the selection of material and construction, traditionally reserved for certain climates and seasons, reinterpreted appropriately for its contrary. Heavy knits in silks, lumberjack check on light airy fabrics and iconic leather jackets reimagined in super chinzed cotton.
Elements of technical garments have been incorporated in the tailoring and finishing of the collection, allowing aspects and details into categories traditionally not related to it.
“This collection is an illusional outdoor world in a more realistic sense. Classic outdoor garments have been reversed and deconstructed whilst still leaving the essential aspects, limiting the amount of trims, and allowing the fabric to be the leading role. OUR LEGACY has ever since the start in 2005 been creating hybrid garments by applying custom-developed fabrics on signature shapes. This aspect is coming through more than ever with this collection.” – Cristopher Nying, Creative Director Our Legacy
