Acne Fall Winter 2012

Although I am usually slightly sickened by the overload of cool blatantly present in every Acne show, there is no denying they make some really nice clothing. But they can also take things a bit far, for example, with the pants in this collection, and the very outdated wide belts. I felt this collection was too formal, I’d rather see less of the tailored jackets, and more easy streetwear. After all, that IS what Acne does best.

I love…

this amazing puffy pale pink jacket.

a leather cocktail dress. I'd die to see this on the red carpet.

cocoon-shaped coats.

I loathe…

wide, waist-cinching belts. Just because you are Acne, doesn't mean you can get away with showing items that went out of style two years ago.

ridiculous trousers. Come on, who would wear this? Even Hanneli couldn't make these look good!

baggy jeans worn low on the hips. I don't think we are ready for this again. Yet.

    Wow! A few hours ago I was watching the collection and wondering what I’d pick as my loves & loathes. And guess what? My choices were exactly the same as yours. I just prefer the sleeveless red leather dress over the one you posted, but that may have something to do with the fact that I pretty much always feel too warm and therefore wear only short sleeves.  But yes, these dresses are the best thing I have seen in a while. Together with Prabal Gurung’s black cape.
