Posted by JAKE HARDY
Scandinavia's Finest Return For Spring/Summer 2017 With Another Inspiring Collection.Collection Feature: OUR LEGACY SS17. Growing organically from graphic t-shirts to classic seasonal pieces, the Swedish label is now focused on conceptual designs and experimental fabrics. Since 2007, OUR LEGACY have built a core selection of products, returning each season in unique and updated materials. Nowadays, the label is taking a more progressive approach, with collections often centered around defined themes. With an emphasis always on quality, OUR LEGACY effortlessly ooze the clean & minimal Scandinavian style that many other companies are pining after. The brand's SS17 collection is unsurprisingly no less of a head turner than previous years. We've got repeat styles in the form of the Box T-Shirt, Classic Shirt & Tech Blouson. With a showstopping Boucle Hair Polo and vibrant 1950's Shirt in an on trend lilac colourway. A subdued selection of off-white, cream, olive & sand is providing an appealing palette throughout our selection, perfect for combining into your existing wardrobe. The OUR LEGACY aesthetic may not be to everyone's tastes, but it's hard to not appreciate what they are creating. These pieces are investments, that will elevate any outfit to elite status.
The Standout SS17 OUR LEGACY Pieces.Here are just a few of our favourite pieces that really sum up what the label is all about.
Our Legacy Knit Short Sleeve Shirt (Boucle Hair Tan)This piece is easily one of the most unique and experimental garments we currently have. Constructed from an Italian 'Boucle' yarn, the polo has a short, fitted shape, with a simple 3 button placket. The intricate fabric is, of course, the standout element to this piece. Boucle is a type of yarn that creates a textured, 'curly' ply. The end result is similar to a towel, but with less weight. This sort of attention to detail is what we've grown to expect from OUR LEGACY, never ones to settle, going the extra mile to produce a true gem. Pair this up with some Lois Jeans Jumbo Cords and a lightweight jacket, and you're well on your way to pulling off the signature OUR LEGACY look.
Our Legacy 1950's Shirt (Orchid Cotton & Linen)One of the brands long standing repeat cuts, the 1950's Shirt is a classic design with a button down collar and curved hem. What OUR LEGACY cleverly do, is take a pattern they know and love, and construct it from a new fabric season after season. Recycling a signature design you could say. Well, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! The SS17 offering comes in a pleasing Orchid hue, made from a linen and cotton blend. It's a nice lightweight material, completely suited to Summer. As with many OUR LEGACY garments, the shirt has a long and straight fit, a cut now synonymous with Scandi minimalism. Try incorporating the Orchid shirt for an enhancing splash of colour in a monotone outfit.
Our Legacy Reversible Coach Jacket (Solaro Nylon)The versatility of a quality coach jacket is unparalleled. They're everywhere at the minute, but none quite like that of OUR LEGACY. They've gone the extra mile (again) and produced a 2 sided garment. The outer being a Twill Tartan, with the reverse a water and wind repellent Solaro Nylon. With a focus on fit, the reversible jacket has a boxy shape, sitting nicely as a top layer with loose sleeves and pointed collar. A reversible RiRi zip is the icing on the cake, a finishing touch that is easy to overlook.
