Space Age / New Age Styling


Following the stud invasion of the last few seasons, Acne Jeans is now taking metal embellishment to a new level. Acne’s S/S 10 collection will include some space age armor styling thanks to their collaboration with up-and-coming London jewelry designer Husam El Odeh. The denim collection will include some sci-fi items like jeans featuring metal knee pads and jackets with shoulder details, as well as a collection of Swarovski-embellished garments with a more mystical and spiritual influence that will be trademarked under the name CRYStALLiZEd™ . The crystals’ placement on the garments will highlight the pressure points of the body, just like in acupuncture. Jeans aren’t the only place they’ll show up, the CRYStALLiZEd™ collection will also include dresses, knits, leather and jersey. Husam El Odeh is also collaborating this season with Topman for a jewelry line inspired by the kind of objects you’d find in the back of a tool shed: a tire, a spanner, nuts and bolts. Items will be in store on October 19th.
