Creative director Jonny Johansson has long adhered to a certain “raw ease” for his Acne collection, and for resort he looked to a longtime muse, photographer Jeff Wall, for inspiration. “There was this one photo he did of a guy and girl, both in T-shirts and rolled-up jeans. It was the right spirit,” said Johansson.
To wit, Johansson created a collection of everyday pieces — with a twist. Treated with Tencel, a great oversize denim jacket was butter soft while the almighty trenchcoat was cut in a crinkled wool plissé and a scratched white leather. Knits ranged from a voluminous toggle vest to a pair of slouchy pants left long and dragging. There were also plenty of fluid linen separates that were paired with some interesting prints worked in a picnic plaid, camouflage and a distorted image of a woman’s face that spoke to the idea of girls looking like boys and the mannish quality of the clothes.
