Collections Men: Acne Studios AW13
It’s remarkable how Acne Studios manages to serve the rest of the world with an endless supply of Nordic cool season after season. AW13 was no different as the label looked towards the life and work of August Strindberg, an iconic Swedish novelist and playwright. Strindberg is revered in Sweden for his stories of dramatic tales depicting love, angst and the class society. For Acne Studios however it was Strindbergs egocentricities, which had the playwright print self portraits to hand out to  acquaintances that were of particular interest. The label managed to translate Strindbergs sense late 1800’s style into a sleek and functional wardrobe for the 21st Century man. There was a great furlines peabody coat in navy blue, paired with ankle swingers and long collarless shirts, creating a casual, layered effect. An easy downtown chic that will surely appeal for the artsy downtown Acne crowd. @acneonline
