Some remarkable early-sixties-boy band coifs (the monkeys, the kinks, the rubettes, the beatles, the babes …) dressed in the minimalist creations of Jonny Johannsson creative director for ACNE Studios, whose theme (you guessed it) was partly based on the looks and uniforms of artists, partly on Swedish folklore (would love to hear the stories that go with the picture above), and a retro style of tailoring harking back to the forties. Sixties hairdos, forties style, minimalist impressions – the latter as is the rule in much of art and design coming from Scandinavia, all set in a tradition of Swedish folklore – as ACNE Studios of course comes from Sweden.
As a matter of fact, the press release is as precise and minimalist as the AW 16/17 ACNE Studios collection itself, and as we cannot express or describe it any better ourselves we leave you here for what it says to enjoy:
- A neat and boxy double-breasted jacket like a pea coat
- Workwear pants add to the air of functionality
- An oversized donkey jacket with half kimono, half raglan sleeves
- Tailoring is unstructured and unassuming
- Woven wool coats with details inspired by Swedish folklore
- Knitwear that flatters the body
- Suede pants with cropped leg and tailored wool pants front pleated and tapered at the ankle
- Colors are understated navy, grey and ivory – with flashes of lavender or pink
- Voluminous organza shirts
- Chunky socks are a must, as are felt slippers
- Sneakers have extra tread, decorated for utility
