The latest showcase from the Swedish born, California raised, and now New York based designer, continues his alternative look at classic America.

Taking inspiration from “rusting buildings, railways, traces left by pioneers who’ve come before”. Using iron and copper oxides and fabrics washed to fade he has created a unique collection which features oxidized jackets, metal woven into cloth, sun bleached chambray shirts and jackets, and even a pair of Clarks Wallabees studded with rusty staples.
