Acne Pre-Fall 2014 – Creative director Jonny Johansson cites winter days spent at his beach house as the inspiration for Acne Studios’ pre-fall 2014 collection. A muted, earthy color palette of forest green, neutrals and grays shapes the new season. Pre-fall’s sleek silhouette is accented by bold, graphic prints which were inspired by paper cut-out work by Johansson’s son. With a focus on mid-length skirts and outerwear, the Acne woman looks prepared for the transitional season.
Acne Resort – Swedish brand Acne Studios goes from day to night with its resort 2014 collection featuring relaxed silhouettes in androgynous cuts. Jackets and pants are fluid in shape, embellished with sequins and shaved fur while skirts fall to the ground or are tied to the side. The color palette this season consists of silver, ivory, marmalade and deep blue hues. For prints, the Acne woman wears moon and star motifs, stripes and zig-zag shapes. Shoes for resort are high platforms; almost eastern inspired in varied hues.
On the Money – Acne’s resort 2013 collection finds inspiration in PR girl style with an outing of slouchy, streetwear influenced shapes. Designer Jonny Johansson created prints from colored banknotes in green, indigo and gold hues matched with neutral basics. Accessories include patterned glasses, oversize clutches and multi-colored hats for a quirky yet wearable resort season.
New Generation – For pre-fall 2012, Acne designer Jonny Johansson was inspired by the so-called “TV Generation”–those who grew up with MTV and emulated what they saw in videos. Making it contemporary, Johansson placed focus on androgynous elements–from metal chains to relaxed suits to techno silvers, pre-fall is all about capturing the allure of the past for a modern audience. Knee length coats are paired with mini skirts for a contrast of proportions.
Tight – Victoria (Stockholmsgruppen) gets into a bondage mood for Jesse Laitinen’s black and white portraits shot for FGR’s most recent exclusive. Styled by Christopher Insulander, Victoria wears a wardrobe of all Acne pieces with strict leather accessories. Messy tresses by Jenny Karlsson and smokey eyes by Alexandra Olsson complete the cool yet sexy story.
Acne Goes Downtown – Acne’s resort 2012 collection brings its relaxed, minimal silhouettes to a new season with pops of vibrant color and solid materials laid over sheers. With tousled hair and oversize frames, the Acne girl sports an unlikely juxtaposition of fabrics, from silk and taffeta to denim and cotton, for a chill and hip effect.
