The U.S. Import High Summer
By Sascha Oda
U.S. Import hold a unique place in the market, especially within Copenhagen with the store also playing as a flagship store, for the lack of better words, for Soulland while complimenting the label with a selection of other well established labels. Having known Silas Adler, designer and founder of Soulland and one half of U.S. Import for sometime I been able to really understand his design philosophy over the years and see him grown into one of the leading creative's in the scene. We worked together on U.S. Import High Summer, along with a team of very astute people to compile an editorial of mass proportions. Below, Adler puts it in his own words about the idea behind the piece.
"The U.S. Import High Summer showcases a hand picked selection of the brands we have in the store in a graphic and color full setting. The styling in the shoot reflects a bold, vibrant look in the shop for the season with patterns and color, surf shorts and varsity jackets, yellow shirts and beige capes all essential to the aesthetic. All parts of a strong summer look!"
