I guess everyone heard about the fascination around Acne and their unbelievably fashionable collections. I’m not one easily fooled by trends, so I question Acne’s wearability.
I’m sure many fashionistas would daydream about their wardrobe getting a full Acne makeover, but their Fall Winter 2009/2010 collection is highly questionable. Let’s start with the shoes: of course Olivier Theyskens brought some serious heights for Nina Ricci’s fall collections, but Acne simply takes that height and turns it into astronauts footwear. (the story continues right after the jump with more pictures!)
Nowadays, when Beth Ditto covers fashion magazine (without any clothes on), are we sure we’re dreaming about plastic pants that’ll sweat the life out of you? Acne is! And they’re going full speed with a transparent plastic skinny pant for fall! And in case you don’t know how to get your very own Acne, just be that inventive, resourceful fashionista every recession has: take your daddy’s best suit vest and slightly adjust the sleeves and you’ve got an original Acne men like vest. Take one of Ikea’s rugs, fold it, slice some cuts for your arms and you’ve got an original Acne faux fur vest. And while you’re there, take some gift wrapping paper or some wallpaper, wrap it around you and you’ve got an original Acne dress.
If life gives you lemons, you’re supposed to make the best (lemonade) out of’em. Why should we blindly accept a brand’s doings if they’re too edgy to wear? (a special mention for the leather/fabric coat, though… I love it!) (via)
