Per Götesson is adding romance to menswear for Weekday
The London-based designer renowned for elevating the ordinary returns to Weekday with an exclusive capsule adding romance to the masculine wardrobe. As Weekday teams up with designer Per Götesson it’s with a feeling of being close to home. Working in retail for Weekday during his college years, Per Götesson went on to de-signing womenswear for Cheap Monday before starting his eponymous menswear label. Nowadays, he shows on schedule at London Fashion Week. weekday.com
Subverting ideas of hypermasculinity into something softer and more inclusive, Götesson’s Weekday gender neutral capsule includes reworked wardrobe staples in jersey and denim. Thus, the project touches two core questions at Weekday: how to circulate materials cleverly and push the boundaries on denim production. pergotesson.com
Inspiration is drawn from photographs by Karlheinz Weinberger and promotional imagery of Marlon Brando. It’s about freedom, sensuality and valuing the craft that goes into making clothes.
Designing this collection, we built on ours and Weekday’s common values. It’s a collection for someone who values freedom of expression and appreciates craft.
Five gender-neutral pieces (two pairs of jeans, a hoodie, a tee and a kilt) in jersey and denim, remade from previous collections. Online exclusive in a very limited edition. Launch date: 26 August 2021.
