A modern vintage revolutionary song, an homage to our great glam and progressive rock heroes of the 70's. The hero of “A Childish Dream” feels and dreams that he is being completely manipulated. He feels and dreams that his very existence and life are going against his will, until he decides to dream differently, until he decides to take matters in his own hands Musicwise the song's character originates from the exciting rock musicals of the 70's era. The Who's “Tommy” and A.L.Weber's “Jesus Christ Superstar” contain elements that one can find in “A Childish Dream” . Glam and Progressive acts such as David Bowie, Roxy Music, Queen, Elton John, Marc Bolan and Sweet have also been sources of inspiration for the songwriters. All the above blend harmonically with 21st century independent music movements.
Obscur is a conceptually experimental brand founded in Helsingborg, Sweden (2009); designed by Richard Soderberg. Was based in Cohenhagen, Denmark for a year; while currently, the studio is Berlin, Germany since the autumn of 2012. The brand's main focus is the menswear line, womenswear was introduced with the SS12 season.
Traditionally scandinavian, Obscur has an austere, clean and sterile aesthetic with an industrial and timelessness aspect. Essentially predisposed to liking the disstressd and the different, Richard Soderberg is influenced by wave/goth/techno, being devoted to Berlin for its raw, pure musical scene, undistorted by too pretentious people.
His attention is caught by the roughness of objects and his studio is filled with industrial machines and instruments that in theory would not have anything to do with actual clothing.

CoSTUME NATIONAL announces the launch of its new women’s and men’s RTW line, Costume and Costume. The brand Costume and Costume, which replaces C’N’C, responds to a market that is increasingly oriented to retail and the web. It is thought to be an addition to the main line with a more contemporary market approach. A selection of items Costume and Costume, will be available in the CoSTUME NATIONAL flagship stores, even if the line will have its own independent structures of distribution and direct retail stores.
