Acne Autumn Winter 2011

Sometimes Acne annoys me because they are just TOO trendy and cool (go to their head offices in Stockholm, and you’ll see what I mean.) It feels like because of this image they have, they can get away with putting pieces on the catwalk that are deliberately ugly (like a cropped jumpsuit) and I find that irritating. But other than a few horrible utilitarian pieces, this collection was great. There were tons of their signature oversized jackets, this time featuring a sleeveless biker vest which looked amazing, and some very strange but beautiful colours. I’d wear a lot of this collection.

I love…

leather overalls. After having seen Mamma Mia during my manicure on the weekend, I am really wanting some overalls.

I loathe…

a cropped utilitarian jumpsuit? Come Acne, that's just bad.
