I got another Acne newsletter in my inbox today. I usually ignore them, because the stuff is expensive to ship to Canada, not to mention expensive to buy, but this striped jersey collection really caught my eye. I am going to try and find some of it when I get to London in March.
I have had an interesting relationship with Acne, which included one year of job interviews and a freelance lingerie project with them, which led to nothing because of the damn recession. In fact, that is one of the reasons why I am in Vancouver, because Stockholm wouldn’t have me, things went pretty bad there after the economic crash.
I love Acne’s collections, including the fantastic Acne Paper, but sometimes I feel like they are a little “too cool.” Their offices are cool, everyone who works there is cool, and generally, its just an overload of cool. But the product is great, and I’d love to own more of it.
I’m overdue on a blog post of “I love Swedish fashion”, so its something to consider writing about in the next month, maybe after the fashion weeks. In the meantime, I am loving the Acne stripes.
