OBSCUR women’s S/S12

Ever since my friend Richard Söderberg started his menswear brand OBSCUR, I have been constantly asking him to start designing also for the prettier half of the two genders. Finally the prayers have been answered, as he debuts with his OBSCUR women’s collection for S/S12 this year. This capsule like collection features elements typically known to the brand: Treated leathers, rustic zippers and that certain dark aesthetic – this time blending these familiar elements into a soft dream like state, embracing the feminine side of what defines OBSCUR. Needless to say, I can’t wait to see more of the women’s wear in the future.

“A myriad of forms embody this first complete exclusive cluster of pieces that is a feminine expression of OBSCUR. Constrained structures juxtaposed with playful anatomy create warped and skewed perception of shapes. Molded outlines uncover bare human flesh. Treated leather in a gradient, heavy exposed silver along with raw material melt and merge with one another to coexist within an extremely feminine silhouette.”

      1. personally i think he’s one of the best avant garde designers… awaiting his recognition similar to ad or ro…. the women’s collection is the right step. then online shopping would be next, nothing big just the ease of it…

        1. I think the same, there are definitely great things ahead for OBSCUR. For online shopping you gotta try probably Darklands, Layers London or Ink Hong Kong but I know you can acquire pieces from here too: http://212157.obscur.se/?cat=9. They probably have XS in store since it’s straight from the source. But yeah, an actual online shop would be nice… We will see what the future unfolds. 🙂

  1. oi että, nuo hihat ovat aivan mielettömän upeat! En olisi uskonut ikinä sanovani näin, kun ensimmäinen ajatus hihoista sanana on aina ne 2000-luvun taitteen reivihihat 😀

    1. Haha, voi ei, reivihihat! 😀 Onneksi nuo on niistä kaukana. Nuo irtohihat on kyllä pakko saada, toimisivat nimittäin ihan mielettömän hyvin sellaisena eye catherina pelkisettyjen asujen kanssa tai vähän erikoisempana vaihtoehtona esim. juhlapukeutumisessa.
