Per Gotteson’s latest collection, entitled ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’, is his BA collection and focuses on individuality. The young man he showcases is a contemporary pirate – he is an outsider, who dresses with flair and originality, whilst not deviating from the menswear pieces that we are all familiar with. Trousers are cropped, and tailored sweatpants come in a playful but chic slashed electric blue. Latex was heavily cut and slashed throughout the range and interspersed with webbed fishnets, emphasising the rebel seaman outsider that is trying to assert himself as an individual. Innovative and conceptual, this is a brave and exciting range from a new talent to watch.
