Johan Lindeberg is making a comeback. But this time, he's expanding his creative empire on his own terms. You might know the Swedish designer's work from his time pulling the creative strings for many years at Diesel, J. Lindeberg and Justin Timberlake's denim line William Rast. Recently, Lindeberg has embarked on a new journey, combining his collective experience in the fashion and art industries into the new emerging brand called BLK DNM (pronounced "black denim").
To smooth the way onto the off-line market, on June 8 BLK DNM -- which has previously enjoyed success as an e-commerce store -- will open a temporary store in New York called POP 1. Comprised of clean, classic lines with a contemporary edge, BLK DNM is made up of leather, denim, knits, cottons and cashmere for both men and women. Lindeberg will also debut BLK DNM Gazette 1: a large-format, 30-page magazine edited by Stylist Aleksandra Woroniecka, featuring the works of artist Terence Koh, jewelry designer Waris Ahluwalia and director Wes Anderson -- among others. "Its purpose is to create an interesting culture and manifest our creativity as a collective, rather than to promote product," says Lindeberg. Here's a sneak peak of the first issue!
