Long before the current interest in heritage design and prior to the resurgence of workwear as a fashionable staple, there was the Scandinavian apparel label Dunderdon. While lesser known in comparison with the likes of Carhartt WIP and Dickies, Dunderdon  nevertheless won a fiercely loyal following since its establishment in 1997.  This was due to its beautifully made workwear, an ideal mix of premium materials and a Scandinavian reinterpretation of form and function. But another factor of the brand’s cult-like popularity was its founder, Per-Ivan Hagberg. A carpenter by trade, Hagberg stumbled upon his interest in fashion after a few stints within the industry. Sensed the missing link between consumers’ wishes and tradespeople’s needs,  Hagberg started Dunderdon via one pair of workpants. Gradually, the serial entrepreneur filled it with a full collection for men, women, even branched out to two other speciality labels, K.G.A.T. outerwear and A/B P.I Hagberg & Co. denim.  Sadly, after a hard fought battle with cancer, Per-Ivan Hagberg passed away last month. Already with such a track record in what really was Hagberg’s second career, imagine all the would-be possibilities…

In honoring Per-Ivan Hagberg’s long list of accomplishments, Dunderdon’s New York flagship store is having a close-out sale now till this Sunday.
