Acne Studios Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

Acne Studios has brought to the Paris Fashion Week catwalk a rather intriguing collection that can neither be considered the best nor the worst that we have seen on that runway in the last few days. Of course, of the 30 pieces put on display in the Acne Studios fall/winter 2015-2016 collection for our viewing pleasure, it would be the one with the nearly bare chest that would catch our attention since we simply cannot understand when and where one could go out wearing such garments without being arrested for public indecency. There are a few pieces we like though and among some of the rather unusually cut and tailored designs, they truly stand out as unique. This includes the ensemble with the sweet cropped top with the sleeveless cut paired with the tight high waist legging style pants that somehow remind us of the jeggings that were in style but two or three years ago. The funky mushroom hat and the pure red lips complete the look nicely while cowboy boots may have been a better choice than the black simple open-toe sandals that the model has been given. The fabric pulls at the crotch of the size 2 model though, so we find it hard to imagine how it would look on our size 8 bodies.

Acne Studios is a Swedish fashion house that was founded in 1997 by Jonny Johansson, the designer who works as the company’s creative director to this day and delivers to us both men’s and women’s ready to wear fashions, footwear, accessories, as well as denim. The company has gained immense popularity and is available for purchase in Paris, London, New York, Los Angeles, Antwerp and Tokyo. At the moment, Acne Studios presents its spring/summer and fall/winter collections, appearing twice a year on the Paris Fashion Week runway. It also presents the women’s resort and pre-fall collections in New York. For Acne Studios, it is all about the quality of the pieces and the longer the life of a single garment, the better for the company it appears. In 2014, their goal was to have 20 percent of their fabrics used for their constant products made of organic cotton and other environmentally stable materials.

The Acne Studios pieces seem to really focus on tight materials around the legs, accentuating their length and really showing off their width, while we find ourselves enthralled with the double breasted midi dress in navy and magazine page designs, cinched at the waist with a silver wraparound belt and the look complete with large dark glasses, a lovely beret, dark red lips and mottled beige and camel half boots up to mid-calf. Throughout the Acne Studios fall/winter 2015-2016 collection we see lots of tight pants with slits at the inside hem, including in denim and leather, while a few pieces show off the nipples proudly, others have oversized coats, while others still include symmetrical skirt hems and slits all over the place, generally placed smack in the center as the season’s trends dictate. It may not be the best collection out there, but it certainly is not the worst either, falling somewhere in between with lots of room for improvement. We expect something amazing to be handed to us come the spring/summer 2016 collection time and we cannot wait to see how Acne Studios turns this around!
