Acne SS12

Images style.com

Acne presented their spring/summer 2011 collection yesterday eve, just wish I was there as this was one of the shows I really would have appreciated seeing live. Instead, like many of you out there, I waited for the runway images online, but it was worth waiting for, knowing the latest change of direction of this brand made it even more exciting.

As I haven’t seen any reviews yet I don’t know what Jonny Johansson had on his mind behind this collection but here are some of my favorite looks that I wouldn’t mind have worn straight away. Wide legged bermudas, cropped tops and trousers, knee length skirts and leather in the color scale we’ve seen around lately, mustard greens and yellows, blues, orange and pink, and yes pink, there it is again. I do find the star prints a bit hard to swallow though, neither Miu Miu or Dolce&Gabbana have managed to convince me so far but if anyone could, perhaps Acne, it’s got months of growing potential but I doubt it….. See the whole collection here and judge for yourself.

    The stars aren’t print, they’re cut out. I think that might help? ;)

    I really, really hated the hair though. Kinda distracted me from the collection actually.

    Overall, I really liked the structured dresses and tops, but I completely agree with you on the stars: they remind me too much of Miu Miu and somehow they looked out of place in such a sleek collection.
