Copenhagen concept shop Storm has been putting Europeans onto forward-thinking styles for quite some time. Now, it’s celebrating its 20th anniversary and has cooked up a collab with XXBC, in partnership with interior designer and stylist Marcus Paul, on next-level sweats worthy of gracing the shop’s shelves. The custom box it comes in isn’t too shabby either.
XXBC was launched in 2012 by designers Alex Lee and Will Thompson, and provides a whole new take on the cozy boy movement, adding unique panels to sweats. This collaboration is no different. Deadstock vintage textiles spiked with paisley and floral motifs are found in the paneling details of a total of 24 sweaters. The antique fabric doesn’t stop at the sweaters, though, because each will come in a box wrapped in embroidered fabric. You’re truly getting a one-of-a-kind item.
These sweatshirts will be available on the Storm website starting Aug. 6. No plane ticket to Copenhagen needed.
