XIII WORKSHOP: AW22 REVIEW + INTERVIEW WITH PER GÖTESSON
catalog ref: SV3906
For the coming winter, a discordant pathway emerged for Swedish-born fashion designer Per Götesson’s AW22 collection, WORKSHOP. Expanding on SS22’s soft-to-the-touch masculinity, the new work expressed harsher, more intimidating attitudes in every streamlined cut, muscular proportion, and peculiar accessory. Götesson also made a name with his Slash works, in collaboration with Swedish street fashion brand Weekday. Beginning with one of their deadstock hoodies, the distinctly dysfunctional cuts rose in popularity and quickly became synonymous with the designer.
Presenting to the public on the closing day of London Fashion Week in a small studio space in Hackney, whilst analysing the collection together Götesson answered a few questions on his latest creations.
Jacob: Hi Per. You showcased a new edition of the Slash hoodie for AW22, could you explain what’s new with this year’s edition?
Per: So, this year the cutouts are different. We’ve been looking at this kind of tank top. What’s new about it is that we have this internal structure, and then we have this volume around the sleeves – again, in line with the other silhouettes of the season. So, I would say that’s an update on this one. The construction is completely different, but a similar idea.
Jacob: Did you start with a Weekday hoodie again?
Per: I started with a second-hand hoodie and then we’d take the pattern off one. This is obviously the second-hand version, and we are offering it in a black and a grey as well.
The refined two-in-one iteration featured a cleanly cut out tank top blended into the hoodie’s slash detailing, and leaving the chest partially exposed to allude to an overtly masculine aura.
