After his AW18 presentation, the Swedish born, London-based designer decided to come back to the runway for his SS19 collection. His starting point – “Arnolfini Portrait” by Renaissance artist Jan van Eyck, exploring the ideas of masculinity, resulting in contemporary and minimal silhouettes.
The colour palette was consistent with neutral earth tone hues. Denim was used in abundance throughout the show. Denim jacket with extremely oversized sleeves and raw hemlines, vest jacket with pouches and zip detailing, with an added broken plate brooch of Prince Harry and Megan for a playful touch. Paperbag trousers, vest with childlike scribbles and a knitted sleeveless top with cut out sides continue Götesson exploration of sexuality within clothing. Aside from the clothes, the accessories stood out rightly on their own. Caps ornamented with cutlery and scarves and broken plates chained together, while the raw hemlines and seams created an edgy look to the collection.
