Starting as Acne Jeans back in the 90’s, ACNE recently changed to Acne Studios premiered on the stage of Paris fashion week this season, marking an even bigger success of the brand. But with more eyes to please, the higher the demands. The collection reveiled a burning desire to answer all those expectations, however resulting in a disorganized collection that would benefit from peeling of some layers of juxtaposed prints and colours. Even though hard to identify significant trademark, pieces such as the exaggerated silhouettes, this season with angular jackets, as well as pastel hues and quirky details were included. The idea of the collection sprouted at the Musée Galliera in Paris, where Johnny Johansson together with Katerina Jebb looked into the archive of antique clothing of which the inside construction of those garments would turn into inspiration. The print for example, seen on various garments, is thus a photomontage of the interior, as well as the motif of a chain stitch. Their vision would manifest itself in such features in particular, but not in the collection as an entity.

Oh my god ! Finally I have someone confirming my dissatisfaction with this collection. I've always loved acne, but this was a disappointment. Acne's collections are usually so .. together. I was surprised when I first saw it ! I honestly have trouble understanding it.. I agree with the peeling !! I'm so torn. Oh well.. I'm crossing my fingers for a good resort and spring collection. I'm actually on my way to Stockholm to browse for some pieces from their 2013 spring and resort collection !
