New to HBXWM: Acne Studios Spring/Summer 2020 Collection
For the brand’s Spring/Summer 2020 women’s collection, Creative Director Jonny Johansson explores the concept of living a contemporary life within nature. Inspired by the beauty of imperfections and the connection we have with the wild, Swedish folkloric patterns are presented alongside a range of loose silhouettes and iconic Musubi Bag created with contrasting fabrics and textures. Arriving for the first time at HBXWM this season, our editorial captures the spirit of Scandinavian minimalism while juxtaposing design and attention to detail. Scroll through to take a closer look at our selection and shop below.
Johansson’s interest in photography, art, architecture and contemporary culture shine through his modest yet impactful collections. With an emphasis on tailoring, some key highlights from the range include the Janny Double-breasted Pinstripe Jacket and Patrina Pinstripe Trousers are rendered in statement-making grey striped wool. The outerwear is detailed with padded shoulders, peaked lapels and left chest pocket, and the bottom sees a high-waist and flared legs. Reach for the Llia Pleated Midi Skirt which accentuated by front button closures and an asymmetric cut for a feminine touch. Matching the garments are a slew of eye-catching scarves, namely the Toronty Logo Scarf which comes in oversized branding and dressed in grey/pink, orange/azure blue and black colorways, and the Cassiar Check Scarf emblazoned with contrasting lettering and is available in hues of forest green/oatmeal and navy/red.
Inspired by the formation of the traditional Japanese obi sash, Acne Studios’ Musubi Bags arrived with a wide array of iterations and varied sizes, from shoulder bags to cross-body bags. The carry-alls feature knot detailings, a detachable shoulder strap and front embossed logo. Elsewhere, while the Musubi Camera Crossbody Bag is constructed from an oversized knot on the front, adjustable strap and top zip closure, the Mini Cross Body Bag features two knots and silver-toned stamped logo on the front, invisible snap button closures, and is offered in hues of almond brown, light blue and black. Rounding out the range are the versatile styling pieces like Agar Sunglasses and Manhattan Sneakers for daily styling switch-ups.
