The Acne collections always have a distinctive character. Not too extravagant or too classic, they remain faithful to austere minimalistic lines. What really makes the difference is the attention to detail that uplifts a garment from just plain and simple to ultra stylish. The Autumn Winter Men’s collection is strikingly colourful. Black may be the dominant colour but bright blues and reds add a refreshing and frivolous happy note. An intriguing concept, the idea of faking or pretending to be something that we are not, is adopted. The fabrics used are not what they seem to be. For instance, what seems to be leather is not leather. The garments adopt a persona, imitating the behavioral patterns of the people wearing them.
