ACNE was Paris yesterday for their first international menswear show presentation. As Johnny Johanssen mentions, “When I was thinking of my first international Menswear showing, Paris was the natural choice. And why Le Chateaubriand? For me it is about a fun night, great food and wine, sexy people and having fun either in a group or just watching. And why not turn a restaurant into a disco?”
Acne’s Menswear Collection for Spring/Summer 2011 is an exercise in juxtaposition. Jackets are small and tight whilst trousers are wide and flared. Proportions are challenged – waists become higher and tshirt’s become longer. Silhouettes are pushed across silks, jerseys, cotton, wool and microfibre pieces, in an attempt to create the perfect disco, school boy look.
