After having subtly explored the true creativity of childhood earlier this year, Acne Studios presented a poppy collection for Spring/Summer 2019 during Paris Fashion Week.

Having focused on the use of bright colors, in the way of high-visibility orange and something similar to the “Frozen Yellow” hue popularized by Kanye West, the collection focused on regimented, fisherman-like outdoor wear, with the brand’s creative director, Jonny Johansson saying, “Menswear is always a lot of outdoor wear for us. We are from Scandinavia, you know, it's a climate where the outdoors are very important.”

The collection’s elegant formality, refined by way of billowing trousers (Slides 3, 7, 13, & 18), was pulled back to a sportier arena with anoraks, technical fabrics, cross-body roping, and lightweight, transparent layering (Slides 6, 9, & 13). Despite a plethora of oversized, shaggy knits drawing much of the crowd’s attention, footwear still managed to shine through, with sportier outdoor silhouettes previewed in slides 3, 11, 13, 15, & 18, to thick-soled Wallabee-esque kicks seen throughout. A smattering of socks and sandals also made themselves known.

Considerably less graphic than previous collections, Acne’s SS19 was nevertheless a strong play from the Swedish powerhouse. Let us know your thoughts in the comment section following.
