1. Our Legacy

Founded in 2005, Our Legacy creates clothes that are typified by subtle detailing, minimalist shape and a strong emphasis on quality. The result is effortlessly stylish and ideal for men who appreciate minimalist design with character.

2. Filippa K

Filippa K designs effortless, essential pieces with clean design and high quality. The idea is to offer long lasting fashion based on the core values: style, simplicity & quality.

Founded in 1993 by Filippa Knutsson and Patrik Kihlborg, Filippa K is one of top leading Scandinavian fashion companies today, with strong position in longlasting fashion. Filippa K offers wearable, aesthetically balanced pieces that stand the test of time – effortless, essential garments with clean design and high quality.

3. CMMN SWDN

Designers Saif Bakir and Emma Hedlund first met studying menswear at the London College of Fashion, and were almost immediately drawn together as partners. Later undertaking design duties for Kanye West in his Paris studio, Bakir and Hedlund continued on to found CMMN SWDN. Moving from strength to strength, Bakir and Hedlund have since honed a clean aesthetic for CMMN SWDN, characterized by international influences while retaining Swedish sensibilities at the nucleus of the brand. The term “tech-noir” has been used to describe the label’s progressive designs, which have been picked up by influential retailers around the globe.

4. Whyred

WHYRED is all about contrasts, where the expected meets the unexpected in a nonchalant elegance. Contrasts where black meets white. Where stiff meets soft. Where leather meets nylon. We love to play with the conventions and disregard the obvious.
