Fashion by Acne Studios Fall/Winter 2017 for Men

Fashion by Acne Studios Fall/Winter 2017 for Men

Acne Studios’ Jonny Johansson was inspired by “Keanu Reeves’s swollen face.” for the fall/winter 2017 men’s collection. (we read that on vogue .com)

From the Acne Studios Press Release: “I realised that businessmen don’t exist anymore, even though the world has chosen business. It led me to think about working men in the 80s, and how they fetishised their clothing. I wanted to bring that same respect for fabric and shape to this collection.”  – Jonny Johansson, Creative Director

Usually we don’t read anything before we write down about what’s going on in our own minds when we make a runway review, but in this case we’re glad we did: the ‘swolen face’ inspiration is just too funny, but the press release made more sense to us, at Mimi Berlin.

 

Anyway; In our opinion Acne Studios created very cuddly nerds; a species that could be studied by a, probably not so much nerdy, audience who were seated on benches in a lecture hall. We imagine it must have been something like a biological-fashion-anthropologie-class experience, Fun! We wished we were there. (also because we fancy the designs by Acne Studios very much)
