Artworkwear, everyday workwear for the creative ones.
London born Vyner Articles is dedicated to create a relevant seasonal wardrobe, to be lived in.
Vyner Articles is named after Vyner Street, in London’s East End, where the Creative Director and Founder Heikki Salonen used to live and work. Elements from Vyner Street, such as a neon sign Trapped in Freedom created by artist Marlon Brown adorning the façade of the studio, as well as the opposite establishment a much loved pub The Victory, are nodded to through prints within the collections and constitute foundational elements of the brand’s family values. Currently nesting in Finland – new inspiration is driven by traits found at the “neck of the woods”.
The garments are simple and made of humble materials, keeping the focus on perfecting workwear staples beyond the sentimental with special attention to prints, treatments and fabric manipulations. The design process mixes and cross-references multiple ideas on several levels where familiar elements are introduced within surprising contexts. The collections are ethically made using principally organic materials.
“My idea was to create a new type of workwear for artists drunk on creativity”
