Paris : This season, Acne Studios held it’s show at the infamous Pompidou Centre – housing some of the world’s finest modern art. A fitting venue for Acne, who took an artisanal 70’s approach to their fall collection. Eclectic oversized tweed coats and blanket wool knits boasted intricate rope lacing at the seams- blue and orange buttons lending a modern finish. Printed raffia in a Vivienne Sasaan print was collaged together on a shirtdress and the panels of high waisted jeans- which wouldn’t have been out of place on the walls of the gallery! This seasons signature leathers came in new volumes: ovoid and less biker- more utility, with patch worked pockets in natural raffia. Sheer knits came paired with asymmetric wrapped skirts, or high waisted trousers in sofa brown leather whilst a geometric prints in sulphuric yellow added a 70’s twist to the line up. – Anna Ross
