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)

Engineered Hybrids

Engineered Hybrids designed by flower engineer Andreas Verheijen. Engineering is an ongoing project for Verheijen it’s initially about creating flowers and not about arranging them. Apart from being proposals towards new varieties, the engineering series should primarily be seen as a laboratory towards shape, color and texture in a broader sense than normally seen in the flower industry.
