London Fashion Week
September 16,2012: Acne Studios
Acne Studios S/S13: A strong collective of their signature blouses, jackets,leather accessories and knits that are perfect understated and directional staples to one's wardrobe. The color blocking in beautifully drapped blouses,maxi skirts with leather gilets was stand out creative direction from the endless theme of black and white stripes that so many seem to have included. I think the red and white leather 'horse jockey' inspired jacket is one of my favorite silhouetes as well as the accessories: handbags logo embellished "acne studios" , gladiator strappy rubber soled boot/sandals, and of course the hats: cowboy meets cyber punk, straw piled hats that become a sculpture. Overall practical understated style meets the future of fashion silhouettes; Acne studios always a silent step ahead. Kate Middleton are you watching?
