Acne’s creative director Jonny Johansson was inspired by a recent exhibition of artist August Strindberg’s self-portraits in Stockholm in his latest pre-Autumn women’s collection. Here are shown reworked classic designs of trouser suits, shearling coats and parkas which came in extreme proportions and heavy layering (looks like Nordic outing to me).
Model appears in utilitarian and classic pieces in cocoon shapes: there are lots of bell sleeve outings with oversize hoods and collars: once again, those standout parkas look great along with cozy faux fur peacoats. That cross-body bag with long strap looks really Flinstone like. All in all, I would say it’s a practical collection with easy wear garments.
