Acne Studios – Spring Summer 2017
“This is a fresh take on menswear at Acne Studios, one that is very crisp and clear. I was thinking about how empty Sweden is in the summer, and also how romantic. We looked at tents, thought about nostalgia, and also considered how to evolve the waterproof jacket.” — Jonny Johansson, Creative Director.
The creation of Menswear SS17 is inspired by the summer in Sweden, hometown of Acne Studios and Jonny Johnson. He was inspired by tents in the past with the details such as strips and check that made him thought about nostalgia as he brought back in this seasons.
In this collection he began by using tents’ materials to create oversize ponchos for the beginning of this collection. We can also see water-proof A line parka jacket decorated with zip on the side for the obvious shape of the body. For knits, Johannson applied the variety of combination to knitting, stitches and the stripes on shirts’ collar which made of plastic or PVC instead of cotton. He often picks up to use stripes in this collection. The shoes of the collection have similarity to Mary Jane shoes with platform and made of rubber.
