Soulland was founded in 2002 and is owned by designer Silas Adler and CEO Jacob Kampp Berliner.
Its design principles and aesthetics have their origins in Scandinavian artisanship combined with a contemporary feel, encapsulated by the Adler Fedora; a traditional men’s fedora fused with a baseball cap brim, handmade in Copenhagen. Whilst always remembering its legacy, Soulland aims to push menswear forward in new directions.
Presenting two seasonal collections alongside two pre-collections every year, Soulland has received much acknowledgement from international press outlets such as The New York Times, Euroman, GQ, ID Magazine, Bangkok Post, The Guardian, Dazed & Confused and Selectism. Soulland designer Silas Adler was awarded Designer of the Year at DANSK Fashion Awards 2012.
Soulland opened up its first flagship store in Copenhagen in August 2013, where 2014 saw the opening of the first Soulland flagship store abroad in Bangkok.
While also functioning as a webshop, Soulland’s website produces content on a regular basis through interviews and bulletin posts concerning cultures of interest to the Soulland team. The website, made in collaboration with E-Types, won a bronze award at Creative Circle Awards 2014.
Soulland is available in premium stores worldwide such as Voo (Berlin), Odin (New York), Goodhood (London), Ron Herman (Los Angeles), Colette (Paris) and Magasin (Copenhagen), amongst others.
