Acne SS14 Lookbook13:38
As I took the first look at the Acne Studios SS2014 collection I thought it is a nice collection for women, but hey, it is not for women! It is the men's collection!
The elongated, elevated silhouette comes throiugh in extra slim high waisted jackets and short pants, as well as in a high waisted evasé trouser. Naked sandals and structured gentlemen’s evening slippers bring a strong feminine touch (especially the ultrawide trousers)!
The collection pays homage to the Swedish artist Hilma af Klint whose works have become
an important focal point for spring. Featured on shirting, fleece, jersey and scarves, her artwork presents the garments with distinctiveness. The metallic details bring a glam rock touch to it. David Bowie could also be a big inspiration with his androgynous style.
Overall I really like the direction Acne has taken for its SS14 collection. It is less commercial and I wonder how many men we will see next spring wearing those ultrawide trousers with a metallic shirt!
