Latimmier is a new ready-to-wear label by rising Finnish fashion talent Ervin Latimer. Latimmier collections are designed for anyone who wants to express masculinity with their clothing. The brand aims to expand the notion of masculinity by challenging who can perform masculinity and what kind of clothing can be used to do that. After graduating from the prestigious Aalto University in Helsinki in 2018, Latimer was headhunted to work at cult luxury label Alyx under creative director Matthew M. Williams. Since then, Latimer has worked for Danish high-end label Heliot Emil and in 2020 he was awarded awarded Young Designer of the Year in Finland.

P.L.N. was founded in 2020 by Peter Lundvald Nielsen and then officially launched in August 2021 with the brand’s first collection (Collection I). Peter Lundvald Nielsen has previously worked for Balenciaga, Vetements and Ottolinger before starting his own clothing brand. i-D Magazine mentioned P.L.N. to be one of the best collections presented during CPHFW SS22. Since then, P.L.N. has received wide interest from both leading dealers, international press as well as recognized creative actors. P.L.N. is a very personal project based on exploring a raw and uncompromising visual expression. The designer’s ideas and personal tastes form the foundation of the creative process. Here, European punk culture is mixed, with references to workwear, goth and antique religious attire in addition to well-considered silhouettes, thorough construction, as well as experimental reinterpretations. P.L.N. is based on a traditional understanding of the body, but is not limited to a particular gender or sexuality.

Defined by an experimenting and intuitive way of working with traditional knitwear techniques, the brand challenges our perception of shape and pushes our expectations of the materials and their behaviour.
