SS16 Collection A faint foghorn sounds in the distance, its deep tone ricocheting over the calm seas. A marine vessel, floating adrift. The boatsmen overlook the horizon. Tales are told, life unfolds, with the sun as their uniformed captain.
For SS16, THE WHITE BRIEFS explores the dimensions of leisurely tailoring. There is a certain beauty to be found in politesse. Sartorially, this implies democratic shapes and loose flowing fits that assure the wearer’s freedom. Clad in functional garments, interaction is encouraged. Shirting elements are deconstructed, before their reassembly into clean and slightly boxy shapes. Colors appear juxtaposed, with camels, marine blues and bright whites, featuring alongside a deep signal red, adding a graphic element to the collections overall nautical feel.
The SS16 wardrobe is comprised of tactile summer essentials. A technical windbreaker is paired with functional bathing shorts, waffle-knit tees appear layered underneath sleek double breasted shirting and loose muslin pants lock eyes with a light terry cloth coat. To step out on deck comfortably, a unique beach boy sneaker was crafted together with Erik Bjerkesjö, challenging the traditional rules of footwear composition.

VENT A touch upon your skin. A sentiment triggered by scent. The contours of an intimate encounter, underneath a soft breeze. Sophisticated in its delicate proximity. The parallels between undergarments and perfume are easily drawn. Intertwined with our individuality, they envelop us during our most private and sincere encounters. Personal and profound. Home; our safe haven, lit here by a single candle. Its pale light reminiscent of the Nordic clear skies, its scent, subtle, understated and singular. Its inception; a dialogue between The White Briefs and Calming Park.
Its subtle notes of pure organic ‘fleur du lin’, were hand picked by the perfume artisans of Grasse. Its composition fully captures the thread between swaying garments, our bodies in motion and the looming exterior. Its complexity oozes sensuality and expresses the delicacy found in sartorial ingenuity. VENT, a fragant candle, signifying the chicness of quiet intimacy, framed here as a sacred bond between the sweeping winds of the rugged North and the discerning perfumers nose.
