Why should you know this brand

Our Under the Radar series is made in collaboration with SSENSE. Every month, we spotlight a new and rising talent that you can buy from the retailer. Encompassing all aspects of the contemporary style spectrum, this series acts as a gauge of where luxury fashion is headed in the years to come.

Founder Heikki Salonen’s Vyner Articles imprint is a distillation of everything that inspires him. Named after Vyner Street, the street in East London where Salonon’s home and studio are located, everything – from the name to the references behind the clothes – was born out of Salonen’s life and experiences.

Jean-Michel Basquiat, David Lynch, Louise Bourgeois. Three masters of their own craft and three artists cited as major inspirations for Salonen. This partly explains the orderly chaos of the Vyner item collections.

Patchwork pieces cut from heavyweight workwear fabrics sit alongside bold prints and bright colors. These are all things Salonen has taken from the outfits he sees in his daily life – daily inspirations that inform the direction of one of the most exciting young labels around.

Below, we’ve put together a short list of our favorite Vyner Items pieces available right now at SSENSE. Be careful, they are all on sale too.

Organic cotton jacket

Alternating panels of bold bandana prints give this workwear-style jacket a big personality. In fact, this piece is perhaps the best example of the brand’s work in one place.

Bandana backpack

Continuing the bandana prints that have characterized the recent collection, this backpack is both technical and organic.

Two pieces of silk

Silk pants

There’s something so awesome about the checkerboard print. The two-tone classic is eye-catching but also surprisingly understated in its simplicity. This silk two-piece highlights the best of the pattern thanks to its fluid material.

Organic Cotton Long Sleeve T-Shirt

Organic Cotton Long Sleeve T-Shirt

Two contrasting prints vie for attention on this cut and sew long sleeve t-shirt. The organic cotton base is super comfortable and falls perfectly off the shoulders.

Paneled tote bag

Leopard print against floral text against gothic text. There’s a lot going on, but that’s what we’re here for. It’s the raw energy we love.

Exclusive pieces are always nice to own, but packing an exclusive piece from a younger brand like Vyner Items is essentially an investment. Wait for the brand to explode and for you to have a first exclusivity.

Organic cotton t-shirt

Translating “masters of reality” in Salonen’s native Finnish, this basic graphic tee looks like an advertisement for a retro horror movie.

We are all trapped in reality, aren’t we? So why not make it a little more bearable by cutting hoodies from hot brands?
