Overlord Brand was created around the idea that obsolescence is a nonsense. A direct response to the dark world of fast fashion, Overlord create unique pieces using upcycled vintage clothing that are, quite literally, greater than the sum of their parts.
In a culture where, in general, clothes are throw-away, made cheaply and designed with very little attention paid to longevity, Overlord is a brand who are going against the grain. Much as we do, Overlord believe that the human and environmental cost of fast fashion is something that needs to be addressed. With a view that there’s plenty of life left in vintage pieces, deadstock clothing and old textiles, they create ethically produced reimagined pieces with classic military and workwear influences.
Those That Know are excited to be the first Overlord stockist in the UK.
Overlord are based in Marseille, France, but source their vintage clothing globally. Only the highest quality items and fabrics are chosen, often from iconic utility and army pieces. These are then reinterpreted to create something entirely new.
Choosing to manufacture ethically, Overlord work only with amazing, passionate craftsmen and small workshops. The result is a relationship of trust and respect where everyone in the manufacturing process is treated fairly.
Upcycled Vintage Clothing at Those That Know
Our first drop from Overlord is coming soon and will feature some of our favourite upcycled pieces of theirs, the Patchwork Trousers.
The Overlord Patchwork Trousers will be available in two colours that are defined by the vintage fabrics used in their construction. The olive version is created from patchwork fabrics from old US Army Field Shirts, whereas the blue model is built using fabrics sourced from old French Workers Jackets.
The fabrics used come from a multitude of different sources, meaning that there is different shades, gradation and wear in each panel. The result of which is a truly one-of-a-kind unique garment.
Overlord’s upcycled vintage clothing may be constructed from old fabrics but each piece is designed to be worn hard. The skill and craftsmanship that goes into every single Overlord piece, along with the exceptional fabrics, means that they are built to last a lifetime.
