Our Legacy is a Swedish fashion brand based in Stockholm. Founded in 2005 by Jockum Hallin and Cristopher Nying, the brand started out with a line of graphic print T-shirts, and in 2007 the first full collection was released. In the same year, mutual friend Richardos Klarén joined the brand, becoming a third co-owner. With a full collection came the need for a retail space of the brand’s own, and in 2008 the first Our Legacy store was opened on Krukmakargatan in Stockholm’s Södermalm district.
Renouncing fast-paced consumerism, the first collections were characterized by pieces stripped of conspicuous detailing, with the emphasis placed instead on quality. Pieces developed within the first collections had a timeless approach and an effortless appeal. Our Legacy was originally, and in many aspects still is, more of a product-focused company than a fashion brand focusing on seasonal collections with transitory themes.
After a five-year period of building a more basic and classic line for men, the Spring/Summer 2012 collection marked the beginning of a new, more conceptual and experimental Our Legacy, as the brand began creating collections around defined themes with a more progressive approach to design. The focus on product remained however, with signature designs returning each season in new guises. The first Gothenburg store, together with a new flagship store on Jakobsbergsgatan in Stockholm, opened later the same year.
Since then Our Legacy has grown internationally, garnering a strong following outside Scandinavia. A fourth store was opened in London during 2014. Located in Soho, at 1 Silver Place, the Our Legacy London store is the first outside Sweden. With around 240 multi-brand stores stocking Our Legacy worldwide, the brand is today available to a global audience.
