Our Legacy Spring 2023 Menswear Collection

“Luft” is the Swedish translation of the word “air”, and creative director Christopher Nying took the theme from the Our Legacy spring collection, which premiered during Milan Fashion Week through a showroom presentation.

Our heritage is about smart construction of clothes with a minimalist look. Their pragmatic and technical nature is mitigated by the sophistication of Nordic essentiality, elevated to coolness by an illusionistic approach to hybrid shapes and volumes. If the idea seems too complicated conceptually, the IRL results were surprisingly attractive and eminently wearable. After all, Swedes are often elegantly simple in their approach to style and lifestyle. However, creative twists are to be expected.

This was the case where manufactures and treatments traditionally appropriate to certain climates were on the contrary reinterpreted on the contrary. Heavy-looking sweaters were made of soft silk; leather biker jackets were rendered in soft chintz cotton; airy fabrics have been overprinted with abstract/grungy lumberjack checks. In the same vein, the tailoring incorporates technical aspects and utilitarian details. Inverted and deconstructed, the collection had “an illusory exterior feel,” said Nying, who limited the amount of trimmings, not to mention the completely foreign notion of decor, to let bespoke fabrications, interesting in their imaginative finishes, do the whole conversation.
