DB Berdan is a streetwear brand that originated in Istanbul, Turkey, and use their queer culture as a referencing staple to create prints and patterns that tell a story. The brand identifies their customer to be people who like bold colours and statements with sarcastic humour.
The collaboration features DB Berdans signature street style, with a blend of the wearability that ASOS is known for. Take for instance the Berdan signature denim and neon orange panel print, this has been constructed into a gorgeous denim jacket for a real statement piece, or for those of you that like something less bold, there’s a simple bubblegum pink hoodie which is finished off with the brands signature urban toggles and white arm band.
We spoke to Beg Berdan, lead designer for the brand, who had this to say about the collaboration:
“ASOS was looking in to our collection for a few seasons. Naturally big brands like ASOS look for the consistency of a designer. After a few seasons, they have ordered from our collection. It was sort of like a training course for us. ASOS evolved and trained us for manufacturing for big quantities. Their systematic regulations really helped us be more professional. We have just received the good news that the reaction of the first day was great. This really encourages us.”Beg Berdan upon speaking about the DB Berdan x ASOS collaboration which launched in March 2019
We’ve hand picked some of our favourite pieces from the collaboration below:
