Yesterday I was invited to view the Pre-Fall and Main Fall Collection from Acne 2012, at their fabolous headquater and showroom in Stockholm. And it was such a sight for sore eyes! Beautiful colours, a mix of fabrics, focus and the body and waist in their MAIN collection as well as new and interesting silhuettes, cool prints with different stories, and amazing statement shoes. It’s always such a delight to get a real thorough presentation, and the up close touch and feel gives such a different and inspiring perspective.
“On the whole, this collection served notice to anyone who still primarily thinks of Acne as a denim brand: They’re playing a new game now, and they intend to play in the big leagues” from style.com‘s review of the FALL12 show in London.
-Love this soft pink raincoat. The flower print is from photocopied flowers and paper-
-With focus on the waist, bright colours and white and metallic-
-The mix of the oversized knitted sweater and feminine shiny metallic skirt, gave the outfit a cool and laidback feel-
- If you wanna go black and white this fall, make sure this is the way you do it-
-The contradiction and play with fabrics continues, here is a bodycon dress under a loose fitted workwear inspired dress-
-High collars, mix of fitted and loose, adjustable waistbelts, thick fabrics in soft mint colours and a new way of layering, adding a sheer feminine top over a fitted bodycon sweater, that also made the perfect silhuette with the hig waisted pencil skirt-
