obscur is built on a self-evident principle regarding the design – a garment’s true value can only be fully recognized when it is being worn. designer richard söderberg creates the clothes after absorbing the spirit of the dark and misty landscapes of his home country. his deep love of dark scandinavian music is also of great inspiration and has been translated into the garments.
obscur is not about being drawn to extremes, but rather an urge to refine classic silhouettes to perfection. honest and powerful expression reveals the true design behind the garments, so minimal styling is required. achieving a pure esthetic can be difficult as there are many elements to consider.
richard is to some extent trying to create all-round key garments that can easily worn by different personalities to create the perfect balance of an outfit. the world is constantly changing, but obscur’s raw and straightforward view on beautiful garments, however, not something that can be compromised on.
