Acne Studios Men’s Fall/Winter 2016

For his second men’s collection at Acne Studios (Fall/Winter 2016), Jonny Johansson was influenced by his nine months spent in the Swedish military service in his younger years.

“Those uniforms dated back from the Forties. They were beautifully crafted with clean lines,” – Johansson recalled to Women’s Wear Daily.

The military influence and simplified fashion characterized by WWII is a strong base for the collection. Added are touches of pastels, metallic adornments and silk scarves – A LOT of silk scarves – all drawn from Swedish folklore of his hometown.

Now usually when I think of Acne Studios, I think of their minimalist silhouettes, signature denim and the oversized leather jackets. So it is fun to see Johansson’s signature touches in this collection – especially the oversized jackets. I also like how he adds feminine touches to his men´s collection – similarly to how he mixes masculinity into his women´s lines.

Johansson obviously likes to have fun and isn’t afraid of mixing things up. There was formal with utility wear – with felt slippers paired with chunky socks and formal pleated pants with a knitwear vest – along with feminine details throughout this menswear collection – long dress-like shirts over tailored pants, pastel colours, shrunken peacoats and scarves.

I am not sure about the hair though. I am hoping it is to add to the androgynous message? I know Humphrey Bogart did not have hair like this.
