Did I mention before that I’m a huge fan of ACNE Studios? Every season creative director Jonny Johansson tickles me with the best silhouets and materials. Now he gives a peek for Fall 2015 with his pre-fall 2015 collection. “A big move toward feminism”, Jonny told the press.
He referenced retro ski attire from the Thirties, proposing chunky mountain shoes, boxy suits in whipcord and sporty tops with zippered collars, layered up for maximum impact. Cool factor were the traditional fabrics such as Shetland wool, Harris Tweed and necktie silks fabricated into voluminous coats, deconstructed knit sweaters and blanket capes. “To use those kind of hyper-classic materials and make them look new was challenging,” he said. Point taken!
