Soulland

Entitled ‘Video Dead Vol.1’ SS19 sees Copenhagen based Soulland introduce a new collection of everyday styles inspired by a VHS rental shop owned by founder Jacob Kampp Berliner’s dad. Having stocked titles from genres ranging from Sci-Fi and action to erotic cinema and comedy, graphics include quotes, script references, screengrabs and stylised typography across relaxed, versitile silhouettes. Styles such as the Anders T-Shirt have more experimental decoration whilst the Tor Crewneck and Sigurd T-Shirt have a more classic aesthetic with pops of colour. Making a point of their progression into more sustainable design, new fabrics include recycled blends and cotton grown organically through ethical working conditions. 

With humble beginnings within printed t-shirts, Copenhagen based Soulland have become a prominent figure within the contemporary streetwear scene for their menswear collections that promote Scandinavian craftsmanship combined with British design. Inspired by Denmark’s rich creativity, Silas Adler founded the brand in 2002 aged 17 and continues to use his upbringing as

continuous reference for both new collections and the ethos of the company. Named after his homeland, Soulland derives from the term for sea-land ‘sjælland’ with the word 'sjæl' translating to ‘soul’, which captures both the geographical and emotional characteristics of the country. Having dropped out of school, Adler focused his sights on working, skateboarding and designing t-shirts which he would sell to friends and locals. Original graphics and a strong streetwear edge saw the brand develop a steady international following before now CEO Jacob Jampp Berliner joined the team in 2006. Continuing to learn as they go, the duo use their own life experiences and upbringings as a base for new collections and don’t follow set trends, rather designing for people they like using the city’s stylish, vibrant energy. Now much more than a line of t-shirts, Soulland releases two collections per year and two pre-releases. Silas Alder was awarded designer of the year at DANSK fashion awards in 2012 and in 2018 Jacob Jampp Berliner was elected as the chair of Copenhagen fashion week.
