One show I was looking forward to seeing at the weekend was Acne Studios; despite not always fitting my personal style, it’s one of my favourite labels for it’s young, fresh and Scandinavian aesthetic. I was excited to see the new collection since their change in gears for the spring, and they didn’t disappoint.
Inspired by the sea and LA surf culture, Jonny Johansson, founder of Acne Studios came out bold, matching psychedelic, wave-like swirls with animal prints – in an impossibly coherent fashion. There were also slouchy sweaters and blanket-sized shawls in pastels and tweed, while the oversized pom-pom ‘helmets’ picked up on this season’s trend for unusual headwear – which I’m very prepared to buy into! The anoraks and raincoats began clean and simple in fisherman yellows and sky-blue tones, before coming to a climactic finish with an oversized, metallic purple, crocodile embossed raincoat. PHEW! Check it out here.
This autumn, I’ll be looking out for the mid-length leather skirts with split placed confidently in front, as well as the 70s inspired denim with front patch pockets, and the gorgeous, metallic-look, silk blouse – which I spotted, layered beneath an asymmetric wrap shawl!
Here I am outside Palais de Tokyo before the show –
I went for a younger look to Acne Studios but still kept it smart with a collar and heels. I opted for a bright lip colour to finish, which brought out the colours in my floral sweater.
