PUMA X HAN
Simplicity and functionality are cornerstones of Scandinavian design, and Han Kjøbenhavn takes them to an extraordinary place. Founding partners Jannik Davidsen and Tim Hancock innovate with classic vintage workwear and a fondness for their stomping ground of Copenhagen, Denmark. For this collection, they channeled their upbringing, local sports, and suburban architecture for inspiration. Their goal was to surprise. Apparel uses unexpected material mixes such as rayon, jersey, and twill. Footwear serves up bright muted colors that are simultaneously fresh and nostalgic. Finally, light, checkered wool pays homage to the iconic trench coats worn at their local football stadium.
Despite the long sleeve tee being a basic essential in every wardrobe, it takes real design talent to create a humble T-shirt which stands out from the crowd. With its luxuriously soft piqué quality and random logo placement, Han Kjøbenhavn has succeeded in producing a core piece as surprising in its detail as it is timeless.
