The Spring Summer 2023 collection was inspired by the Swedish word for air – “luft”. The element of air and its characteristics can be seen as a leitmotif throughout the collection.
This collection is an illusional outdoor world in a more realistic sense. Classic outdoor garments are deconstructed whilst keeping the essential elements, limiting the number of trims, and letting fabric take the leading role OUR LEGACY hybrid garments have been at the focus of OUR LEGACY since the first drop in 2005. The utilization of custom-developed fabrics on signature shapes has served as the brand´ s key to success.

The playful and explorative spirit is caught in the multiple collars and belts, that have been scanned and printed on the silhouettes, or some sweatshirts and t-shirts whose bottom give the effect of high-waisted jeans creating playful optical illusions. Dresses and blazers are cut with detachable panels. Thanks to transparent nylon straps, tank tops look like they’re floating, creating never-before-seen dynamics. Traditionally, denim takes the leading role in the collection, far from the conservative understanding of where denim belongs, creating a distinctive mystery.
