Stockholm-based cult brand Our Legacy is the epitome of Scandinavian cool. Applying their own twist to timeless design staples, their play with custom-developed fabrics, minimalist silhouettes and textures has seen them dress A-list rappers like Wiz Khalifa in Hawaii shirts and send ‘techno cowboys’ down the runway at Paris fashion week, all the while questing for the perfect white T-shirt.
The brand was founded in 2005 by Jockum Hallin and Cristopher Nying (who were later joined by Richardos Klarén) and started out with print T-shirts. The designs were stocked across some of Scandinavia’s most reputable stores and it snowballed from there on, with shops opening up in Stockholm, London and later Berlin.
In 2016 Our Legacy launched its forward-thinking WORK SHOP initiative, an atelier-store-workspace dedicated to recycling and upcycling old garments, in an attempt to mitigate fashion waste.
One of the brand’s notable collaborations was the Our Legacy x Vans Vault collection paying homage to California punk, which dropped in 2017.
Originally a menswear brand, Our Legacy moved into womenswear in 2018 and announced their first women’s store opening in Soho in London in 2019. Apart from apparel, the brand now also extends to glasses, shoewear and fragrances.
