Halebop x New Black – Vacation Collection

New Black x Halebop – The Vacation Collection. New Black and Halebop join forces for a third collaborative collection. A six-piece capsule that draws inspiration from family gatherings on an island north of Gothenburg.

The nautical-inspired collection – that consists of a shirt, shorts, a sarong, a beach bag, a water bottle, and a beach towel – is designed by New Black co-founder and Creative Director Elias Mravec Gillberg and his father Christopher Gillberg. Gillberg Sr. painted the watercolor pattern used for the shirt, shorts, and sarong.

Christopher was born and raised in Guldheden, Gothenburg. In the beginning of the 80s, his passion for watercolor painting developed into a true love affair. Around the same time, Elias was born, the fourth of five children. Heavily encouraged by his parents to pursue a creative career, Elias moved to Stockholm in 2007 to start working as a print designer. That same year Christopher and his wife Carina bought a home on Marstrand, an island on the Swedish west coast, just north of Gothenburg. The landmarks and seascapes pictured in the watercolor pattern are all from around the small island of Marstrand where Christopher, Carina, and their five kids, and all of their grandchildren have spent countless days together throughout the years.

The Vacation Collection provides you with everything you need for a stylish summer day out in the sun. The very limited collection is made in Europe and will only be available at newblack.se and halebop.se

We’ve gone all out DIY workshop at the New Black HQ for our new New Life Tees. Sprial tie dye with puff print logo on our classic 180 gsm tee, all hand dyed and printed at our office on Södermalm. Extremly limited quantites. New Life Tee is out now!

NEW BLACK 2021 DROP 3

For the third New Black drop of the year, we decided to take it back. This drop includes not just one, but two of our certified classic prints.

First up, we have the Chief shirt and matching shorts. An all-over black and white paisley pattern that we first brought out back in 2013, way before other bigger brands jumped on the bandana bandwagon.

Next is Monogram Stripe. Our off-white/navy pinstripe design is a fan favorite and has made more than one comeback throughout the years. The collection consists of a shirt, shorts, hoodie, and a tee. 

Finally, the timeless Monogram hoodie and tee in the statement color of this drop: our deep royal blue.

Quantities are very limited. Drop 3 is available at newblack.se and The New Black Store. 

Unfading fashion is the New Black

APO x NEW BLACK

New Black have been fans of Asian Post Office since they first opened their doors 3 years ago. Asian Post Office co-founder Thomas Molin has been down with New Black since the very beginning of the brand back in 2011. Needless to say this collaboration is long overdue.

Asian Post Office, or APO as it’s commonly called, combines great food, amazing cocktails and a vibrant atmosphere with a second to none service. There’s really no place like it in the city of Stockholm. 

We’ve made a print inspired by Asian Post Office’s signature popcorn shrimp dish. Classic New Black L/S Tee in 100% cotton made in Portugal. It’s limited to 30 pieces per colorway so you need to move fast if you want one.

Asian Post Office is the New Black.

FAMILY IS THE NEW BLACK

Growing up in Sweden in the 90s, before the internet became a thing, the only way you could keep track of what was happening in the world of rap music and hip hop culture was by watching Yo! MTV Raps and reading magazines such as The Source, Vibe, Hip Hop Connection, Word Up! and XXL.

We’ve made a series of covers inspired by the magazines we grew up with. A tribute to the 90s – but replacing the American rap stars featured on the covers with people with a tight bond to New Black.

Family is the New Black ❤️

T-shirts and hoodies in premium pre-washed knitted cotton together with our uniform vest, overshirt and cargo pants in woven cotton twill. All made in Europe in limited quantities.

LQD – TIVOLI TEE

Every now and then we release an LQD – Limited Quantity Drop. Always designed at our office in Stockholm, always produced in super limited numbers and always exclusively sold at newblack.se. Make sure to be quick as these tend to go fast.

The graphic for the Tivoli L/S Tee was made a few years ago as part of a spoof print that never got to see the light of day. Inspired by a logo for a great amusement park in Gothenburg we decided the graphic would work better without the bunny rabbit that originally came with the logo. The burgundy flock print gave it a more classic feel. Without us telling this story we’d guess most people wouldn’t be able to spot the origin of this font, not that it really matters… we just thought it would be fun to let you know about the process.

Editorial: Pizza & Tony Hawk 1+2

Seems like it’s officially the last days of summer and we’re looking forward to the autumn season. This summer we’ve done some touch ups to the office and living room of the New Black studio. A perfect place for pizza and the new Tony Hawk 1+2

New Black Fam – Daniel Luna

new black fam

New Black Fam is where we give a little extra love to the people who have helped and supported us over the years and the family is constantly getting bigger. During 2020 and the making of Nästa Nivå, four new up and coming artists have come into our lives and become part of the New Black Family.

Daniel Luna is star quality personified. Growing up in Skarpnäck in Stockholm, Daniel found an affinity for skateboarding and basketball at a young age. Music and especially hip hop have always been there too – says Daniel as he remembers his older brother playing 2Pac in their childhood home.

Struggeling with loneliness, Daniel found peace when he started to write and record music in his bedroom. Recording with Jelassi and Nisj during the Nästa Nivå project was his first-time making music in an actual studio.

Daniel is wearing Fencey Tracksuit and Classic Buckethat.

New Black Jeans – Made In Italy

“Making a great pair of jeans is not an easy task. Not only is it a difficult product in terms of competition but it’s also one that customers are very picky with. We wanted to make a premium jean, free from rips, tears and whiskers, no compromising with quality and still be able to offer a really good price. We also know how important it is to find your own thing – that one detail that seperates our jeans from the rest. That is why we are so happy with our back pocket embroidery. We feel it’s subtle yet direct, just like New Black’s design has always been.”
– Elias Mravec Gillberg, Creative Director

Our jeans are designed to sit at the waist. It’s a 5-pocket jean that is relaxed through hip and thigh and tapered at the ankle. They have a button fly and an Italian flag label at the button hole at the waist. Our signature “N” is embroidered on the back pockets. The 100% denim cotton jeans are handcrafted in Puglia, a southern region forming the heel of Italy’s “boot”.

Our jeans are made to last. We left the stretch, whiskers and scrapings out as we believe a pair of jeans should have a longer life than the stretch fabric allows and that they look best when you’ve worn them in yourself. It’s a classic timeless fit, not too baggy nor too slim but something you’ll be able to wear no matter the trends. We hope you like them as much as we do!

New Balance x New Black – Runs In The Family

“Family is the foundation of everything I do. My home is where my family is. If you ask me, blood doesn’t make you family – unconditional love does! The world is cold enough as it is, people judging one another, only doing things for themselves. One minute you matter, the next you don’t. But in my family, all of that stuff just goes away. You can just be yourself and everyone accepts you no matter what. My family is like my fuel – they’re the reason I do what I do every day, and they’re the reason I rush home in the evening.”

Sarah Åsard

”Out of all my loved ones, my mom and my daughters are the three who have taught me the most, even to this day. I’m adopted so I learned early on that family isn’t about blood – it’s about time, shared experiences and love combining to give you a place where you belong, one that you carry with you throughout your whole life. I’m a very lucky man with great friends across many different generations, and I think of all them as family.”

DJ Sleepy

“Family means the world to me. From my childhood home living with mom, great friends who became like my siblings, all the way to my own kids today. That’s where I find the peace, strength and motivation to move forward. It’s to love and be loved, unconditionally. To be there and know that they’ll always be there for me. Family is everything, I’d do anything for my family.”

New Black – The Story

 

NEW BLACK, THE STORY

A spark ignited on the train tracks in the rainy harbor city of Gothenburg almost two decades ago. With time the tracks would eventually lead to the birth of an unconditional friendship and a trailblazing clothing brand by the name of New Black – a brand born in culture, raised in it, and constantly pushing it forward.

Elias “Eli” Mravec Gillberg and Andreas “Adde” Ramos Undén met through their mutual love for graffiti. The pair had a natural affinity for one another, and that same sense of connection would play a pivotal part in the success story of the brand. New Black was founded in 2010. Back then, the collection consisted of a total of five t-shirts. A true friends and family operation that adapted guerrilla marketing tactics to make a name on the scene. A couple of years later, New Black is worn by Hollywood actors, top tier athletes and international music artists. Every single one wearing the logo by choice and thus becoming a member of the constantly growing New Black family – a creative community and cultural centerpiece.

When stating that something is fashionable, we often say that it is “the new black”. Contrary to the name, the brand always focuses on moving culture forward rather than capitalizing on current trends, constantly staying true to themselves and others. New Black is style that breathes authenticity – a meeting between fashion and statement. A natural affinity.

The tee is now avaliable at the New Black Store and at newblack.se

 

New Black x Sthlm Signs

Sthlm Signs is a Stockholm based company founded in 2016 by Henrik Lindquist and Pontus Bergman focusing on sign painting and true craftsmanship.

Up until the late 80’s you’d still see hand painted murals, branded trucks or shop window designs made by professional sign painters. Then came the computerization of the industry and as the new technology offered faster and cheaper solutions the sign painter profession died over night.

Over time the appreciation for tradition and craftsmanship has grown strong again and many are now looking back to the roots in order to move forward. Sign painting is making its way back and Sthlm Signs have made it their mission to be the pioneers of the new Swedish wave.

14 years have passed since New Black founders Andreas and Elias first got to know Henrik through their common interest in lettering and graphic design. Their passion for letters have stayed the same ever since and when Pontus reached out about a possible collaboration there wasn’t much to think about.

Brush strokes made by the hands of Sthlm Signs, scanned and made into vector graphic and then screen printed on New Black’s pre-washed 100% cotton t-shirts made in Portugal. Basic, traditional craftsmanship.

The tee is now avaliable at the New Black Store and at newblack.se

It’s packed with all the good stuff – tracksuits, hoodies, tees, socks, caps and jackets in a color palette ranging from light, earthy tones to fire red, navy and dark, overdyed camouflage. The aesthetics are unmistakable New Black, but this time, the statement is slightly more subtle.
