Richard Söderberg is a relatively new, talented young designer from Sweden. He originally launched his label under the name “Macabre” in 2007 but changed it to “Obscur” shortly after. He has been compared to Rick Owens, but his style is more likely to be influenced by his homeland. Scandinavian design is very austere and somber… Scandinavians LOVE black!
The Nordic aesthetic hit the runway during New York’s recent fashion week when emerging designer Odyn Vovk launched his collection. His line is really raw and vital. It sides more with utilitarian fashion ideals, as opposed to the wearable avante-garde designs by Richard Söderberg. Either way, I love this look!
