Acne Studios’ latest seasonal offering is an ode to subversive minimalism

Swedish-founded label Acne Studios has embraced a rather subversive approach this season, offering a collection that fully epitomises a distinctive twist to what’s ordinarily seen on the brand’s garments.

Custom staples include lightweight overshirts paired up with slouchy tailored blazers, invigorated by flared-out silhouettes – eponymous for slick-comfort. There are still plenty of conformed proportions and patterns within the collection, as seen in the checked blazers and traditional fastenings details.

One-tone ensembles anchor some of the more daring looks, encompassing lustrous parkas and woollen lapel blazers, created through the use of shimmery detailing. Patterns are a further go-to statement, without neglecting fringed ponchos, skirts, panelled trench coats and tank tops, providing an organic feel to the apparel. Bulky boots, bare-toed mules and wacky sneakers enrich the eclectic range, augmenting a contemporary flair, which goes to complement the sense of meek hyperbole encapsulated this season.
