PER GÖTESSON AW20
Updated: Aug 10, 2021
“Our need to find community and belonging is now more necessary than ever.”
Presented on the second day of London Fashion Week Men's in the British Fashion Council show space, the Per Götesson Autumn/Winter 2020 fashion show was one of the most inspiring of the season.
Although being one of the youngest brands of the official schedule, Per Götesson has been developing his remarkable signature, creating a collection that feels mature and of extraordinary quality.
For this season, the designer draws inspiration from the apartment of queer playwright Joe Orton situated in the borough of Islington, the same one where Per Götesson is now living. The flat was adorned by the artist with torn pages from library books, in a similar way, the collection sees a collaboration with collage artist Patrick Waugh.
Community, love, freedom and belonging are at the core of the new collection by Per Götesson.
These sketches, created during the show, are part of my London Fashion Week AW20 live illustrated coverage for L'Officiel Hommes Italia.
