This week we will be unveiling and celebrating the Norse inspired Theft of Mjölnir apparel range. This design is simplistic, captivating and eerie. The black and radiant gold colorway featured in this design breathes light and life into the design making it truly magical and gives the artwork a glow that seems like it is glowing in comparison and contrast to a dark night sky.
This magical apparel range is inspired by the mythical tale of the theft of Mjölnir. Mjölnir was the powerful weapon in the shape of a hammer that belonged to Thor the mighty old Norse God of Thunder and lightning.
Thor was considered to be the physically strongest God of all of the Norse Gods or in correct Norse terminology the strongest in the Aesir which is a collective term, referring to the Norse Gods who ruled over all the realms and Mortals in Asgard. Thor is the son of Odin and the Earth Goddess Jord. It is believed that Thor's popularity even surpassed his father Odin who was King of the Norse Gods and Thor was known to be a likeable character and a protector of the mortals and Gods alike.
Mjölnir was forged by the dwarves and it is said that this weapon never failed Thor. Thor used Mjölnir as a devastating weapon that could harm enemies and win battles but also he also used it as a sacred object that could provide blessings and be used for good. Mjölnir was once stolen by the Frost giant named Thrym. Thrym demanded that as a ransom to return Mjölnir that Freyja be betrothed to him.
Freyja refused to go to Thrym in order to secure the return of Mjölnir and that is when Thor decided to disguise himself as the Goddess and go to Thrym where he managed to grab Mjölnir when it was brought out to bless the marriage of Thrym and "Freyja". It was then that Thor managed to slay Thrym and the other giants and return to Asgard Successfully with Mjölnir.
The Theft of Mjölnir apparel range features a starry night sky background which serves to give the look and feel of the cosmos and Mjölnir at the centre of it all. The gold colorway shows that the hammer is magical and of huge value.
We hope you love this range just as much as we do! We can't wait to bring you many more show stopping designs!
