In the fashion world innovation is often born without reason, favoring aesthetic trends over functional ones. Swedish label Un Cadeau De La Providence (CDLP) emerged in 2016 as disruptors of this tendency, bringing a modern interpretation of luxury underwear that looks beyond conformity and discards male stereotypes. Founders and creative directors Christian Larson, an award-winning film director, and Andreas Palm, the architect behind agency Ciceron, challenge men to approach undergarment shopping based on sustainability, functionality, and tailoring. Understated collections are designed in Stockholm and hand-crafted using only environmentally sound practices in Porto at a family-owned fábrica, where artisanal techniques and enduring quality are paramount. Using silky-soft Lyocell made from trees that require less space and water, boxer briefs, shorts, and long underwear are advanced with natural anti-bacterial and moisture-wicking properties. Shunning logo-heavy waistbands, classically cut silhouettes, sold in an assortment of quantities and single colors, impart at once comfortability and elegance. CDLP’s vision of luxury underwear is one that improves the quality of daily life.
