Scandi rainwear brand BRGN launches in the UK

Norwegian outerwear brand BRGN by Lunde and Gaundal launched in 2015, fuelled by the need for robust rain gear on Norway’s west coast. It is making its UK debut for autumn 19.

The brand is named after the city of Bergen, where founders Karine Lunde Trellevik, a graduate of French fashion school ESMOD, and Ros-Mari Tobiassen Gaundal, who came from a business background, met and made friends.

Currently the brand has more than 40 stockists in Scandinavia, and is now targeting the UK and Irish markets thanks to their similarities to the Norwegian climate.

Gaundal and Trellevik founded the brand with the aim of providing high quality rainwear which was also stylish. The resulting collection, which includes styles for men and womens, features modern designs in silhouettes inspired by smart outerwear shapes – trench coats and pea coats – rather than typical bulky or boxy outdoor shapes.

Styles are windproof and breathable, featuring reflective trims and taped seams. Items appear in three levels of waterproofing – suitable for light rain (April showers), rain (steady winter rain) and heavy rain (downfalls).

In addition to outerwear, the brand also creates boots, trainers, bags and caps – all of which are designed to protect the wearer from harsh weather.

Wholesale prices range from £60 for shoes to £100 for jackets and coats; 0203 096 0740; BRGN.com
