Swedish label Acne is a definite cult-favorite amongst the hippest of the festival-going, downtown-dwelling street-style set. So it’s no wonder that designer Jonny Johansson looked to this emerging crop of style stars (and their blindingly fast adoption of new trends) as inspiration for his Resort collection.
Always quirky and directional, the footwear displayed in this most recent collection might be called “western-sportif”. Cowboy boots and mules with thick stacked heels are fresh riffs on the label’s much-loved Pistol Boot. Verging into newer territory are sporty knee-high, lace-up boot/sandal hybrids with heavy canvas uppers and either low stacked heels or sky-high flared wedges. In statement-making white and black, these styles may not be timeless, but they could easily be the next big “it” item on your favorite style blogs.
