Acne Studios is a Stockholm based fashion house, founded in 1996 by Creative Director Jonny Johansson with an ‘Ambition to Create Novel Expressions’. Taking a multidisciplinary approach to fashion, the lifestyle brand finds inspiration in photography, art, architecture and contemporary culture – creating subtle and luxurious ready-to-wear pieces with an Acne emphasis on tailoring and an eclectic use of custom developed materials.
A fan of Californian punk group The Cramps, Johansson celebrates the cult band with his provocative and rebellious gender-fluid AW16 collection. Subverting conventional underwear-outerwear codes, the collection layers PVC leotards, leopard print tights and striped lame bodysuits over pants and long sleeved tops whilst classic proportions are also negated with vinyl balloon pants, quilted off-the-shoulder puffa jackets and oversized wool jumpsuits. Traditional is too expected for Johansson; instead he radicalises through exaggerated shapes, unique cuts and audacious prints on unexpected mohairs to elevate mannish coats and pants. The Cramp’s inherent expressive style and sense of bravado is evident in the collection’s holographic sleeveless dresses, latex long sleeves and studded creased leathers whilst unique cuts, wire caged detailing and woollen sock footwear maintain the brand’s signature contemporary look.
