Acne Studios x Jack Pierson: Leather Dreams

17.11.2016 | Fashion | BY:

Having always sauntered oh-so-chicly ahead of the pack, the new collaboration between Acne Studios and American artist Jack Pierson should not come as a surprise to fans of the Swedish brand. The new venture sees the label run a limited edition collection of leather goods, which launches today.

The capsule collection consists of one hundred leather pouches embossed with 5 different art works from Pierson’s ‘Caught in the Rain Broken in the Stardust’ exhibition which took place in 1994 in LA. The clutches are available in statement blues, reds and blacks and carry slogans such as ‘Dreams’ and ‘Again Again’.

Twin Picks: Resort 2014

12.06.2013 | Blog , Fashion | BY:

It’s that time of year when resort collections start flooding in and designers show us their creations for the in-between season. With so many interesting lines to pick from, we give you the top four that made our cut…

From Acne’s free-flowing fabrics inspired by overgrown gardens, to Chloe’s over-sized silhouette, Resort 2014 has chosen to ditch the tighter figure. Riccardo Tisci took nuances from previous collections and Alexander Wang for Balenciaga took inspiration from the house’s signature billowing shape to create his latest line. All four of these designers have given us plenty to look forward to the seasons ahead.

Chloe

Clare Waight Keller’s latest collection for Chloe has what she calls “barefoot attitude,” pieces that have no need for heels. This relaxed aesthetic was seen through the ultra-wide legged trousers that came in varying lengths and colours. Crisp shirts were tucked neatly in place, trenches became gillets and soft layers took center stage.

Givenchy

Ricardo Tisci blurred both the feminine and the masculine in this collection, contrasting dense cotton fabrics such as twill and denim with materials such as silk jersey and chiffon to show opposing elements. Layers were key, creating a Holly Hobbie rag-doll look with a-line shapes, full skirts and wide pajama pants.

Acne

For Acne’s Resort 2014 line, Jonny Johansson created a more subdued collection compared to the sometimes-experimental garments seen on his catwalks. Oversized, slouchy silhouettes were created by ikat pajamas, satin dresses and biker jackets. Although inspired by Johansson’s garden, the collection featured less green, more tangerine, white and a plethora of rich, royal blues.

Balenciaga

Having travelled to Getaria, the birthplace of Cristóbal Balenciaga to look for inspiration, Alexander Wang found just that in the house’s archives. Keeping to a muted palette of white, grey and black, Wang played with shapes and length, introducing short-shorts, a theatrical bolero and shredded plastic bucket hats to the Balenciaga’s anthology.
