J.Lindeberg x Golden Bear

01 February 2023

Discover the exclusive collaborations with the legendary American brand Golden Bear, featuring limited-edition varsity jackets inspired by Stockholm and New York.

First launched with the Spring/Summer 2022 collection, the design collaboration with Golden Bear celebrates the creative clash of the cities that first brought J.Lindeberg to life: Stockholm and New York. The legendary American brand has existed for 100 years and is widely known for its iconic varsity jackets. For this exclusive collaboration, the jackets are given a modern yet nostalgic expression that perfectly bridges fashion and sports.

The varsity jackets are crafted from a wool blend with sustainably produced, chrome-free leather sleeves. They feature symbols and patches that are designed inhouse at J.Lindeberg and handsewn on the body and sleeves.

– The collaboration is the perfect marriage and represents the cities of our dual launch. It showcases our lifestyle approach to fashion and merges our progressive Scandi style with a unique New York attitude.

For the Spring/Summer 2023 collection, the Golden Bear collaboration includes a new take on the iconic 'Made in USA' bomber that is crafted from premium leather and features exclusive badges and embroideries. The graphic motifs draw inspiration from hiking in the outdoors and are blended with urban varsity typefaces for the right level of contrast and excitement. The jacket itself is made in San Francisco, California, from leather skins individually selected for their distinctive grain and texture. Imperfections, variations in color and scars add character and make each jacket one of a kind.
