For Fall/Winter 2021, Per Götesson explores the fragility of masculinity with a focused series of demi-couture pieces that cut together previously existing garments. Bombers take on new volume; Air Force linings become an elegant coat; jeans and army trousers play around the legs. Seashell jewelry adds another layer of memory and reflection, made by Götesson’s partner, Husam el Odeh, who also made the metal labels attached to each piece that confirm each garment is one of one.
“I wanted to create a hands-on collection of demi-couture pieces, exploring the memory and meaning that’s in pre-existing clothes. Each piece is unique, merging together garments and revealing the fragility within masculine shapes,” says Per Götesson
