Swedish brand Our Legacy fills an important niche in¬†men’s wardrobes by providing a mix of fashion forward clothing along with easy to wear¬†elevated basics. The brand covers quite a bit of territory and in this upcoming¬†Fall/Winter 2015 collection with a wide array of ¬†colors, themes and styling options. Being a cold weather¬†collection there’s plenty of outerwear here that stands out.

Styles include everything from nylon bombers to wool coats and the above shearling leather. The collection is named 10 , which is also the number of years the men’s label has been in business. The breadth of styles reflect both the brand’s history and also where it’s headed (slightly more experimental territory).

Interview with Our Legacy by Sven Eselgroth

Photographer Sven Eselgroth contacted me to share an interview with menswear brand Our Legacy he had conducted while he was touring Scandinavia this past summer. Sven visited lead designer and brand co-founder Christopher Nying at their studios. In the interview Christopher touches base on the brands roots, inspirations and future, all accompanying photos in this feature are by Sven.

 Can you describe your design education?

I studied art and fashion communication and I think that led to the clothing because I was working with clothes during this time. At first I studied very fine art Рsculpture and painting. Then graphic design, fashion communication, illustration and some photography. I didn’t really want to do that, but at the same time we started Our Legacy and made graphic t-shirts, which suited me quite well because it was really conceptual. We didn’t set out to purposely make clothing, it was more about expression. We tried to understand what sub-culture a particular t-shirt came from and create a look with it. The prints were inspired by lots of different ideas such as punk, skate, football hooligans in the 80s… Today we are coming back to those inspirations again. It doesn’t need to be very specific sub-cultures but I think there are new ones growing today that we’re not even aware of yet which could be quite interesting. Time feels like it goes faster today, people are more aware of what is happening socially and politically due to the newsfeeds.
