WITH LEGACY: THE ULTIMATE FASHION AND TECHNOLOGY BRAND, SET TO RESHAPE HOW ARTISTS AND BANDS CONNECT WITH THEIR FANS.
Through its unique blend of fashion and technology, With Legacy is redefining the fashion industry and also reshaping how artists and bands connect with their fans. Customers are able to access exclusive events, private music playlists, and the stories behind the designs through QR code technology, which sets them apart from similar brands.
Volume 1 https://www.withlegacy.com/collections/volume-1-with-legacy, the brand’s first collection, demonstrates the brand’s commitment to quality, innovation, and collaboration. Each piece has a unique QR code that reveals the story behind the design, which was inspired by up-and-coming bands Blood Orange and Clean Cut Kid.
There is a strong theme of ‘struggle to strength’ in With Legacy’s Volume 1 collection, centred around pushing through difficult times to find one’s purpose. This story has taken inspiration from both Blood Orange and Clean Cut Kid.
It is not only stylish and comfortable but it is also made from eco-friendly materials, making it the perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe. As well as being environmentally friendly, design and comfort is one of Legacy’s key differentiators, as they use only the finest fabrics to make their clothing. By doing so, they ensure that their customers receive high-quality items that will last for a long time.
“Creating a sustainable future is critical for the fashion industry, and at With Legacy, we understand the importance of responsible production practices. That’s why we ensure that every aspect of our production process is environmentally and ethically conscious. We want to show that it’s possible to create stylish, high-quality clothing that is also kind to the planet and our workers.” – George Wells David, Founder of With Legacy.
With Legacy fashion drops:
At With Legacy, we believe that every piece of clothing is a work of art, and we want to ensure that every customer receives a unique, one-of-a-kind experience. That’s why we assign a unique number to each item, provide a QR code that unlocks the story behind the design, and use only the highest quality materials in our production process. Our focus on quality and personalisation is what sets us apart, and we are excited to continue pushing the boundaries of fashion and technology.
At With Legacy, we have big plans to revolutionise the events business. It’s strange that at events, you buy your merchandise and only get to show it off after the event. With our technology, you can buy a t-shirt before an event, wear it, and gain more access to the event, and a week after the event, the QR code changes from a ticket to all the pictures and videos taken at the event. This is invaluable for the event and the consumer. In addition, this approach reduces waste on the environment as consumers no longer have to throw away their t-shirts after an event since it now contains an added value that they can continue to enjoy and share with others, making With Legacy’s approach a more sustainable and eco-friendly solution. We are pioneers in this sector and have been working for 3 years to make this a reality. It’s a massive game changer, and I believe it will transform the way we approach events, gigs, festivals, and merchandise. We are excited to be leading the way in this new frontier of event technology and are committed to continuing to innovate and give consumers more.
With Legacy’s team is made up of individuals with a passion for fashion, technology, music and innovation.
