The new collection for autumn/winter 2007 from Acne Jeans, one of my favourite Swedish fashion brands, is now available at selected retailers. Below is a description of the collection:
Imagine the defiant and fearless gaze of Patti Smith coupled with the energetic bedlam of Emir Kusturica’s portrayal of the Eastern European gyspy, and you have the two bedrock of Acne Jeans new autumn/winter collection.
The women’s collection includes such unexpected combinations as skin-tight printed denim under dusty pink cocktail dresses and soft dusky colours worn cool, sharp zip-embellished leather jackets. For men the silhouette is short and boxy with crinkled trousers worn rolled up and combined with classic men’s shoes made out of netting. For A/W 07 the Acne Jeans couple have upped the ante, playing it both naughty and nice.
Creative director of Acne Jeans, Jonny Johansson puts it like this; “This couple are icons in the making, and they know how to always keep surprise up their rolled-up sleeve”.
