The collection is handmade by Bjerkesjö, his mother who is a tailor and several carefully selected Tuscan tailors. The shoes were made in Tuscany by hand. The leather sneakers is a collaboration with Del Toro with production in Italy. All of the garments are breathable, water resistant and designed for the weather on Gotland, an island in the Baltic Sea where Bjerkesjö is from.
The theme was set on a aristocratic post-modern man who is on its way down to take a swim on a summer afternoon. Swim goggles and swim hats is part of the tailored garments and shoes for a sport-oriented gentleman..
The collection is called ‘Storm within’ and it is a step from passed season ‘Introspectre’. ”Storm within & Introspectre is a simplistic audio-visual interpretation of ones life, with all its ups and downs and unpredictable or uncontrollable events, where every dot represents a memory, a path or a choice that succumbs to each and every moment of our being, which ultimately defines us, and makes us who we are and will be,” said Bjerkesjö of this collection. ”
Deciding our fate exactly as it is from infinite possibilities which will eventually lead us to nothing more than one specific ending”.
