Merz b. Schwanen X CULTIZM

It’s been such a long time since we had the last collaboration with Merz b. Schwanen. We always talked about it, but haven’t tried something special for a long time. Merz b. Schwanen was such a long term partner and one of the original members of CULTIZM along with Nudie Jeans, and Levi’s Vintage Clothing. And when we were preparing our 15 years anniversary, we thought we should do something with Merz b. Schwanen.

It took much more time than we expected as there were so many options to choose from, but in the end we decided to go with two pieces from “Good Originals” which stands for the core/heritage and the best to present the brand.

What would be the most iconic and heritage inspired piece from Merz b. Schwanen? We initially thought about 207, the button facing henley neck shirt with 1/4 sleeve. As we had the ‘Bandana’ theme for the whole season with several brands, we also wanted to stay and mix the idea with the 207. Some of you might remember our last collaboration with Merz b. Schwanen, it was also button facing henley neck t-shirts with different color/fabric on the button line, and this time we played with the same idea but with Bandana/Paisley pattern on it.

At the same time, we also wanted to show something not too heritage oriented and thought about oversized t-shirts. Especially the idea came from that something which could be visible when you wear it alone, but not visible when you wear it inside of shirts or jackets. Thus only the sleeve is printed with bandana/paisley pattern.
