Acne Studios is a Stockholm-based luxury fashion house. The Swedish label sells a wide range of fashion items, ranging from clothes to accessories such as shoes and their latest addition, sunglasses. Acne Studios has been gaining attention from the fashion world and has just released their Spring Summer 2016 (SS16) collection for men. The collection can be divided into three categories: the staple; the bold print and the artistic.
Ready-to-Wear (RTW) collection is perhaps one of the biggest revenues generators for fashion house. Key fashion staples like t-shirt, shorts and blazers with plain colour are something the general public could afford and wear beyond a season. I found some really interesting way Acne Studios mixes and matches the staple pieces:
You can never go wrong with black and white. This is definitely a summer look and could last beyond a season.
Late spring or early summer? The trench coat will do the trick and I love the combination of green and orange. Strikingly colourful and attention capturing at the same time. I actually love this combination.
“Office wear is boring,” says the not fashionable people only. This is an interesting mix of colour and it is actually a nice colour to wear to work in summer – not too boring and not too attention capturing.
THE BOLD PRINT
Acne Studios has gone for some bold prints in its fabric in this collection. I like some abstract motifs and if you love abstract motifs, then you should probably start saving up for Acne Studios’ SS16 collection. SS16 collection will usually come out during late December or early January. Keep an eye on the website!
Wool might not be best the material for spring/summer in Australia but there was once a wise saying, save for rainy days. You can always grab this wool sweater for fall/winter later on of the year. Keep an eye on Mr Porter or Matches Fashion by mid-2016 you might get this piece at a discounted price.
Same as above. Wool sweater for FW16 and this bold print can be a good choice for your wardrobe for next year’s cold season.
This piece might not make it to the final collection for sale but if it does I think it will be a fashion statement. The blazer and the trousers work well together or they can be worn separately. I think the blazer is very versatile. You can put it on over any plain t-shirt and pants. The trousers by itself will go well with plain top and a nice pair of leather shoes. There are just so many possibilities to explore when it comes to mix and matching your outfit.
Now comes the part where we celebrate the house’s creativity. Fashion is a form of art and creativity should be honoured and not hindered.
This tracksuit has the same print as the wool sweater above but if you look into the details of how Jonny Johansson dresses the model – with a big wooden clog. I like this funky look with a twist of Japanese culture in it. Wooden clog was a big thing in Japan back in the early 90s and the fact that Johansson is bringing it back in the menswear collection – IMPRESSED.
“Yes it is scorching hot out there but you know what, I’m going to turn the air-con on whole day long and wear this cool extra long sweater… #BecauseICan.” Pretty much this is my trains of thought when I first saw this outfit. Though may seem a little unpractical in Australia, we can take away something – we can mix these shades of green and blue together.
Inspired to wear a cotton jumpsuit for spring with a cool motif? You should!
