Acne‘s Fall 2011 collection represents the transition from boy to man. And it makes sense. “When did you last see young boys in proper coats, a well-ironed shirt and neat trousers?” Jonny Johansson asks. Well, a lot more than he may think.
Young men are developing their own interpretations of the ‘dandy’. Man bags, colourful blazers and trench coats have become major trends on streets across the globe. However, Acne’s menswear collection takes the concept further: many young men may not be quite in tune with exploring their feminine side. So why not offer them an alternative to ‘scrub it up’?
At time, some of the overcoats look a bit robust, which in the real world, may appear a bit out-of-place on a young’un trying to look dapper. However, the tailored suits and streaks of colour, along with the slightly cut trousers are winners. A success.
