Community and belonging are at the core of the AW20 collection by Per Götesson, something which is so palpable as we realise that what truly matters is the wellness of one and all, rather than just for the nefarious few. This was showcased in the set design, which was in parts added to by students from LCF and really showing that creative expression is universal.
There were upcycled pieces which showcased a sustainable take on collage, with denim jackets mixed with panels of old leather or long-sleeve cotton jerseys that patch together elements of discovered garments. Denim on denim forged a rather innovative path for the start of the decade, with ruched midi hoodies and even a playsuit of sorts with utilitarian pockets and the print of the ocean. Stand out pieces were the aprons, which gave me modern day Hephaestus vibes and with it, this really summed up the feel of the collection, which highlighted the strengths in what unites us to create anew from the fire.
