Swedish fashion powerhouse Acne Studios unveiled its FW16 women's collection as part of Paris Fashion Week. The brand's Creative Director Jonny Johansson cited garage-punk legends The Cramps as an influence, and while Acne's aesthetic was far removed from that of the band's founders – the wonderfully-named Lux Interior and Poison Ivy – there was certainly a provocatively ’80s streak running through the collection.
XXL-sized pants, PVC fabrication and glittering fabrics all harked back to the decade of excess, in a ballsy, full-throttle fashion. Oversized belts (very oversized) and a smattering of leopard print only kept up the momentum for a collection that's a very, very long way from the minimalist tag that somehow still gets lazily applied to Acne these days.
