AUTUMN / WINTER 2017
AW17, Stompers is inspired by an alienated group of young Swedish harbour workers. In a time of rebellion this group of social outcasts created a voice for themselves through provocative expression of re- worked luxury clothing they found in misplaced shipping containers. The idea behind the collection is based on how we see clothes, depending on what context we come from. The harbour workers view on clothes, coming from a workwear culture with another mindset, creates an experimental look, and a sort of nonchalant relation to garments, as soon as they start playing with more fine fabrics as fine woven wool.
Workwear details as pockets are put in a fine, and soft context, mixed with rough embroidery patches with tool symbols and spray artworks, which creates an punk-like look in a more soft and poetic way.
