We can’t help but love a bit of Scandi fashion. There seems to be something about the bleakness of their winters that produces the most effortlessly cool, urban styles. This couldn’t be any more evident than in the new range from Our Legacy.
Fresh out of Sweden’s capital Stockholm, Our Legacy’s ‘TEN AW15’ range comes winging through the grey skies of the autumn, across the North Sea and straight into your eyes. With a determined emphasis on quality, they forgo the world of mass consumerism to tailor products that are simply unrivalled.
Marking ten years in the business, ‘TEN’ is a combination of styles and designs that the company have produced over the last decade. A Smörgåsbord of hand selected garms, it’s the blending of past, present and future to create a range that is both stylish and understated.
Bringing the turtleneck back in a big way, in their own words they are;
Surveilling the schoolyard with a telephoto lens. The collection and accompanying lookbook are studies on youth culture and subcultural style… mixing 70’s/80’s/90’s pop cultural references, hippies, skinheads, techies and club kids.
Picking the best of each, it’s an attempt to create a subculture of its own.
The skinhead inspired trenchcoat is a big look, whilst the hoodies are a more modern examination on youth culture and casualwear.
Having established themselves 10 years ago as a basic/classic menswear brand, it wasn’t until the Spring/Summer collection of 2012 that Our Legacy decided to go in a more conceptual and experimental direction. They wanted to create a definitive ‘Our Legacy’ look – a style for the kids to get behind, and they’ve certainly encapsulated that in the newest range.
Having recently garnered a lot of attention overseas, Our Legacy opened their first international store in London in 2014. Located at 1 Silver Place, Soho, it’s your hub for all things OL.
Ranging in price from around €100 for t-shirts and accessories, to €400+ for their range of coats, it’s certainly not on the cheap end of the spectrum, but you’re paying for real quality.
