Acne at Le Chateaubriand


Acne, the Swedish minimalist label, showed their S/S 11 menswear in Paris at the trendy restaurant Le Chateaubriand in the 11th arrondissement. Jackets were small and tight while trousers were wide and flared. Proportions were challenged – waists became higher and T-shirts were elongated. Silks, jerseys, cotton, wool and micro-fiber pieces formed the perfect disco, school boy look. Designer Jonny Johansson said, “I had a moment of clarity for this collection with my design team at a place called Tango in Paris. It was just a good night out actually, and that dance hall with all of its styled up, dueting couples and slow routines, reminded me of a school dance”. The eyewear for the collection was produced in conjunction with Thierry Lasry, son of an optician and a designer. Based on the concept of “Future Vintage,” Thierry was inspired by vintage designs and remixed them with an avant garde rock and electronic touch.
