Acne Fall 2013: Making the Unwearable Wearable

Each season, Acne designer Jonny Johansson builds on the idea of utilitarian daywear, taking it one step further away from those simple shapes. But Acne is a retailer above all, and even when Johansson is creating garments with the artist Katerina Jebb—who used the archives of Paris' fashion museum, Musée Galliera, to build prints created from scanned historical documents—the clothes have to sell.

Acne Fall 2012: Accident Prone
LONDON--Acne was the last show of a packed Sunday of London fashion week, and the fruity delicious cocktail offered to me by a lovely young guy wearing an all-black outfit (which included shorts, black knee socks, and black shoes), went down in about three seconds flat. If I could have pushed it via IV, I would have. Perhaps that line of thinking got me focused on medical stuff, but this Acne collection looked like it could have walked straight out of an orthopedic unit. The pants were shown with girdle-like belts that sort of reminded me of those back support garments that movers wear. Some whiplash neck braces popped up, too, and there were a lot of flesh-toned garments reminiscent of ACE-bandages. But all very avant garde.
