Swedish Inspired Collab
For this Winter season, Indigofera collaborated with retailer Second Sunrise for a special collection. Both Swedish-based companies made a collection that is inspired by the Swedish army and outdoor clothes. The collection is now available!
The Inspiration Of The Collection
Leading in the collection are the bright orange details which help you stay visible while the names of the garments are inspired by a beloved Swedish cartoon from the ’70s known as Dunderklumpen. Working on this collection they set out to explore some aspects of Swedish clothing history. They mixed Swedish vintage military garments together with functional thinking from classic outdoor clothing.
The result of the Indigofera x Second Sunrise collaboration collection is intended for outdoor activities, featuring a Storm jacket, Dunder pants, CPO-style Ro shirt, wool sweater Jorm, Cumulus beanie, Tur hat, and Trees blanket.
The Collab Collection
The Storm jacket finds its inspiration in a Swedish army parka known as Snöblus (Snow parkas) used by the Swedish army in the middle of the last century. This cotton jacket was made to be worn as an outer layer in snowy regions.
The Jorm sweater is their version of a layering wool sweater. The inspiration comes from an iconic wool sweater used by the Swedish army known as Olles Tröja “Olles Sweater”. It was developed at the end of the 19th century and was used by the Swedish army for the most part of the 20th century.
The Ro shirt looked back in time and was inspired by the functionality of shirts from the middle of the last century. The shirt has a boxy fit and the two large pockets are placed lower on the chest than what is standard today.
The Dunder pants are inspired by 1940’s Swedish army pants, with a high waist and straight legs making them comfortable to wear. The fabric is a Japanese 3 x 1 twill woven of 70 % cotton and 30 % wool.
Next to these must-have styles Indiofera and Second Sunrise also developed a cap, hat, patch, and even a blanket that keeps you warm during a winter fire camp.
