Have you met DRKN?
DRKN is a streetwear brand from Stockholm that saw daylight in 2015. It’s run by a group of creatives that got entirely inspired by the tech and gaming culture. As one of the first labels specializing in what they do, they are one of a kind in their market. Which actually gives them the space to experiment new lanes. Luckily they have an experienced designer in-house. His name is Erïk Bjerkesjö, he interned at Dior then became head designer at Acne Studios. What a win!
Their fall/winter 2017 menswear collection, titled “Horizon_”, tells the story of the new urban explorer in another digital era. By combining superior fabrics and technical detailing DRKN only wants to simplify your everyday life. It’s almost like the athleisure trend but different. Instead of looking at the downsides of the world of gaming, they’re embracing all assets. One of the FW17 key items you must see is the Void jacket, which has an integrated laptop and keyboard space. On the other hand, we are really digging the long black parka coat they’re blessing us with.
